Relation Between Organizational Vision and Employee Empowerment

Please help me with some ideas on how to relate organizational vision with employee empowerment.
I can see that a stong and well formulated organizational vision has a motivating effect on employees, which might increase their performance, which might increase the performance of the organization as a whole.
But who can give some hints beyond that? Thanks a lot.

From Vision to Empowerment

Thanks for your interesting question Mehdi.
First of all, let's define employee empowerment as: "the process of distributing power, decision-making responsibilities, discretion and/or resources to subordinates, employees or workers".
If we combine this with what you rightfully said: a good organizational vision has a motivating effect on employees, then it becomes clear that the process of giving more room/autonomy to employees to take their own decisions will be much easier if we know that they are strongly motivated.
The other way around: should we transfer decision making authority to employees that are poorly motivated, then that would be asking for trouble.
So indeed viewed in this way a strong strategic vision makes the process of employee empowerment easier.
