Organizational enlargement: the dominance of time and space relation by transnational enterprises

Isabel Cristina dos Santos


This work paper aims to discuss the new time and space orientations imposed by transnational companies, mostly supported by the advances of remote communication technologies which has been developed towards to better control new production systems and industrial partnerships. On the other hand, these technologies make new labor forms and relationships possible. In the background of the changes are the efforts to control the variability of the whole organizational environment towards the control of the individual space through global markets. The methodology approach is based on qualitative analysis and bibliografic research related to the taylorist industrial model, organizational culture and employee’s management tools. The conclusion indicates that labor relations are changing and also the individual organizational spaces and roles, previously defined by scientific management. Globalization and a new economic global order, controlled by transnational companies, lead to the rapid rebuilding of organizational reality and competitiveness model, and also interfere with the political and social space of the new industrial localities.
