ACOSTA, María Julia. Transformations in the work world in Uruguay: management in the customized software sector. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.43, pp.79-94. ISSN 0797-5538.

The article problematizes how the management phenomenon occurs in the software sector in Uruguay, seeking to specify what kind of mechanisms management articulates to achieve the collaboration of workers. The aim is to investigate the link that is established between the individual dimension of work and the collective one in a sector of activity that represents symbolic production and that breaks with traditional schemes both in the form of work organization and in the form of management. The article has an empirical basis in a series of interviews carried out mostly in 2016 and 2017 in companies that develop custom software in Uruguay.

Keywords : Management; work; software; Uruguay.
