FERNANDES, Valdir  and  SAMPAIO, Carlos Alberto Cioce. Formulating local knowledge-based development strategies. RAE electron. [online]. 2006, vol.5, n.2. ISSN 1676-5648.

Planning and managing for eco-development in addition to softening intervention procedures also help to generate a new parameter for rationality. This can be demonstrated by the application of PEP (Participative Strategic Planning) and SiGOS (Strategic Organizational Management) as tool for the promotion of endogenous development. Seven experiences of application of both tools were reported in the Brazilian State of Santa Catarina. Findings point out that local knowledge, in the form of accumulation of tacit experiences by the population involved, are seminal for the generation of proposals making up a possible new developmental model. This opens up new roles for the civil society and for a revision of the traditional procedures of the Brazilian public administration, where the state patronizes and centralizes power strengthening bureaucracy and bureaucrats.

Keywords : Local knowledge; local development; planning; organizational management; participation.
