Power Relations in the Project of Economy of Communion: A Brazillian Case Study

Title: Power Relations in the Project of Economy of Communion: A Brazillian Case Study.

Abstract: The exploratory research, summarized here, is inserted in a context of a socio and environmental "crisis". This "crisis" forwards the need for transformative change. A proposed change, added to the existing ones, is being investigated as an alternative form of management: the Economy of Communion. Within this theme, this research is limited to an attempt of analysis of power in companies that adopt this form of management. First, it was researched with entrepreneurs what would be a common vision to characterize the object. We performed a case study in one of the major Brazilian companies that fit the concept of Economy of Communion. The summary tables produced on the interviews provide evidence to demonstrate idiosyncrasies in the exercise of the power of this new proposed management.
