Las organizaciones contemporáneas tipo mp3 y su influencia cultural


  • Hugo Macías Cardona



En este artículo se hace una reflexión sobre la influencia cultural de organizaciones contemporáneas con estructuras des-jerarquizadas y procesos internos no secuenciales, que el profesor Richard Sennet ha llamado organizaciones MP3. A partir de las estructuras organizacionales descritas por Álvaro Zapata, la distinción entre trabajo y labor de Hannah Arendt, los mecanismos de vigilancia foucaultianos y una contextualización en Colombia, se analiza la baja lealtad institucional, la disminución de la confianza informal entre quienes laboran y el debilitamiento del conocimiento institucional. Abstract The article reflects on the cultural influence of contemporary organizations with des-hierarchical structures and not sequential internal processes, which Professor Richard Sennett has called MP3 organizations. From the organizational structures described by Alvaro Zapata, the distinction between labour and work of Hannah Arendt, Foucault´s monitoringmechanisms and contextualization in Colombia, discusses the low institutional loyalty, the ecrease in informal trust between workers and weakening of institutional knowledge.
