Julio Ernesto Colla

Abstract


The objective of the present article was to verify the conceptual position and onto-epistemological of the Brazilian researchers in Strategy-as-Practice from the concepts proclaimed for the movement. The theoretical base presents the conceptual revision of the field that served of script for the analysis of the data. It treated, therefore of the elements of strategizig: praxis, practices and practitiones. After this deals with the agenda and agency in which the movement needs to insert itself. Following the theoretical base perspective onto-epistemológicas ontológicas are presented and that assist the agreement of the strategical phenomenon for the optics of that Strategy is what the people do. The data are the source documents. The determination of articles to be analyzed occurred for the manipulation of articles following a pre-established script. The results of the research make indication of a set sufficiently diversified of conceptual positions with sights to remedy the faced questionings that can be influenced by the context where the researcher is inserted. Also it was found that when passing of the years it had extrapolação of the subject for other seek areas, not having limitation of the subject only in the area of strategy as at the beginning of the presentation of papers in Brazil. The data of the research report that the characterization in a Brazilian onto-epistemological way of performance in the research in Strategy-as-Practice is not possible still.
