ANDRADA, Cris Fernández. Where self-management happens: revelations from everyday practice. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2006, vol.9, n.1, pp.1-14. ISSN 1516-3717.

This essay focuses on the everyday in self-management work relations, a type of social practice which has been developed and very much encouraged within the current brazilian context. The essay seeks to justify the perspective adopted - the everyday - and proposes the re-signification of that which has been characterized as “impasse”, “conflict” and “organizational choices” in this type of work relations. To this end, the experience of an artisans cooperative is presented and discussed, with the objective of re-positioning the importance and meaning of everyday re-planning of work and of the micro-political negotiations characteristic of this context.

Keywords : Social economics; Co-operatives; Self-management; Everyday practice; Conflict; Micro-political negotiation.
