    What do these changes? You can not pass unnoticed, contributions that we foster the humanistic perspectives of the various forces and psychological trends towards understanding the man (manager for our case), so the work of Feud, Jung and others have developed new approaches the basic problem, linking the idea that men are trapped by their concerns, thoughts and images with the need for a radical critique of the situation. In this regard, Gareth Morgan (1993) comments that this is the fundamental essence of the traditional radical humanism, built on the idea that while the individual creates a reality in a way makes it even contained alienated. In this sense, the image of psychological pressure, radicalized many of the ideas on the notion of culture, change, suggesting that the representations, the compliments and languages play shaping the daily life and can be much more confinement typically boast.

In this understanding of culture can not be seen only as a simple variety of companies that form of organization but as active and live events through which each individual creates and recreates the world he lives. Hence the importance that management has included in the changes, which the organization is a representation of a shared reality, especially to achieve their perception and understanding cognition in organizations as a cultural phenomenon. Given the evidence of threats, strengths, opportunities change, the manager relied on the view, represented the culture leads us to see that organizations are essentially structures of social realities that lie in the minds of its members to follow through series of rules and relationships.
