    In this work, we analyse the participation, self-management, interdependence of objectives, work satisfaction and competitive and co-operative behaviours both with Work Teams and individual Work Teams. The objective of the investigation is to demonstrate that Work Teams increase the participation of workers and create their own culture. 232 workers from an automotion company took part in the study. Through the use of standarised instruments, the above mentioned dimensions are analised respecting the operative meetings of the Teams. The results demonstrate that the organisation of work through Self-managed Work Teams increases the levels of the variables analised. In the same way, the groups facilitate the integration of co-operative behaviours with competitive behaviours. Work Teams seem to be an effective tool to facilitate the an organisational transformation towards more effective and creative settings.
