NEWMAN, Diego Alvarez. The paradigm of quality and individualization devices: the attributes valued in dispute. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.43, pp.15-34. ISSN 0797-5538.

In this article we analyze the individualization devices of the work force taking as reference the paradigm of quality. The main hypothesis that arises is that this paradigm matrices individualization devices that de-referentialize the sociotechnical prescriptions of the work positions with respect to the labor categories, displacing them from the collective agreements, and redefining them in the scope of the company under the of labor competencies. The methodology used is eminently qualitative and diverse data sources were invoked from the actors that are an active part of the quality paradigm as international and national organizations, companies and unions.

Keywords : Quality; device; individualization; labor competences.
