Main Article Content

The object of this article is the identification of managerial conducts, originated from human action in organizations. Taking for granted that the organizational actors do not act determinated by social structures, but conditioned by elements, rules and resources pertaining to the social structure of the reality in which they are inserted, it is shown here how such managers reproduce some features of Brazilian society in their daily routines. The field was carried out in the State Secretariat Offices of Espírito Santo State government, taking as a unit for analysis those state civil servants occupying the position of head for at least two years, at the central agencies level, during the period January 1995 - December 1998. The method used was that of a case study, collecting data from interviews. The methodological strategy involved the indissolubility between the strategic conduct of the organizational subjects and elements of the social structure - the duality of structure. Data revealed that the managers contribute, with their action, for the reproduction of some Brazilian structural characteristics. Their knowledge of such characteristics, that is, their cognoscitivity concerning that context, allows them to go ahead, defining the appropriate conduct for each moment, in a process of constant monitoring of the reality around them.
