The shift in power and control implied in this example is quite profound. It can be a leap of faith for senior managers unfamiliar with idea of sharing power. This often means that organizations opt for a cascade approach even though it is slower and costlier because roles are much more familiar. And both approaches work. Ultimately, I believe choice depends on type of organization you wish to create.
I hope this gives you a useful perspective on this critical question as you shape future of your organization. My hope for you is that you create a place that allows maximum use of talent and creativity of people who are part of your work.
