In this article, the results of a study that analysed the construction process of the organizational identity of middle managers in a Colombian organization are presented. The problem is circumscribed to the destabilization of identity as something that is given and relatively secure, and to a growing interest in being considered as an objective and means of the management’s regulatory efforts. The qualitative research was conducted in the form of case of study, in a company named Comercial Nutresa S.A.S., located in Medellin, Colombia. From the critical and multidisciplinary perspective in Organizational Studies, organizational identity was defined as a dialogue between the organization and the middle managers. The findings that constitute middle management process of identity construction were: recognition, transcendence, and security. Upon analysing their relations and meanings for middle managers, it can be stated that organizational identity is a liminal process where in the combination of factors involved in the process form a non-structural space where change, resistance, and constant significance characterise the organizational identity of middle managers in the organization that has been studied. © 2016, Revista Venezolana de Gerencia.
