Abstract:
The study presented here examines management practices which influences the role of Brazilian Open University System (SiSuab) applied at University of Brasilia (UnB). In the explanatory descriptive research on the study of case, twenty-two Department Advisers on SiSuab had been interviewed in three levels of hierarchy. From the outcomes, features of Adaptive Complex Systems (ACS) had arisen: 1) aggregation – creation of a new culture of Distance Learning System (DL), which influences in-class practices; 2) autonomy – in academic management and logistic of campuses, 3) self-organization – in the alternative forms of management, 4) cooperating – in the informal interactions among campuses, 5) emergency – in the informal responsibilities and horizontal networks, 6) interaction – in forums and Moodle usage for management practices sharing. In conclusion, although SiSuab presents the features of an adaptive complex system, it is not regulated as one. Thus, the study of management practices under the lights of ACS may contribute for the expansion of understanding in the characteristics which inhibit or favor Management in complex organizations.
