Within today's complex and dynamic environment, organizations need to constantly adapt and innovate. Although employees pose a valuable source for improvement ideas, they are often neglected in innovation processes. Empowering employees to take part in innovation and improvement processes requires organizational structures facilitating employee involvement and adequate tools supporting employee commitment. This paper proposes the enrichment of the subject-oriented approach to provide adequate tool support facilitating employee involvement and empowerment. It describes an enabling space that is illustrated in an industrial case study.
