Abstract

This study, based on qualitative research, accounts for a process of collective and spontaneous self-managing practices in a group formally structured as a manager-led team. It explains the group members’ reactions to different types of work arrangements and coordination in terms of their need to affirm their professional identity. The characteristics of the organizational context, of the labor market and of the technology involved favor the emergence of self-management, too. We employed observations, ethnographic interviews and analysis of documents in conducting this research.
