Administrative disciplines have built a conceptual model of organizational culture, where the natural character that culture concept enhances from anthropology has been unconsidered. This research examined the way how formal structure of productive organizations influences employees' spontaneous cooperation. The paper has the objective to show that the culture inside the organization not only considers formal structure aspect but also other spontaneous group dynamics, different and at the same time complementary to organizational culture management statements. This document is supported on some key concepts such as order, connection and social organization principles which allow presenting a parallel among two types of order: spontaneous order and artificial order. Finally, The way how artificial order restricts, in some cases, social interactions among employees is developed.
