VELEZ JIMENEZ, Luz Marina; RUIZ ROLDAN, Carlos Iván  and  ZULETA RUIZ, Claudia Mónica. Conversations within Organizations: A Research Challenge before the Evidence of Current Paradigms. anagramas rumbos sentidos comun. [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.20, pp.85-94. ISSN 1692-2522.

Language is invention and constitution of reality; organizations, as any other social phenomenon, do not only exist because they occupy a place in language. Organizations are formed by people and are more than a number of institutionalized roles; organizations become common symbolic spaces by creating new meanings. Conversations imply the exercise of autonomy, self-control, authority, self-esteem, and self-discipline; that is, a self-taught exercise. Organizations can then be defined as a network of self-constitution conversations. Given the incipient scope of results found in such studies, a clear evidence of a need for conducting new researches where the specific objective is ''organizational discussions'' is observed, since it becomes a new field of national and international research for Communication as an academic discipline.

Keywords : Organization; communication; conversation; relationship; transformation; phenomenology.
