  Declaration of Intent
Collective wisdom is informed by a deep comprehension of interconnection and a subtle penetration into mystery.
Collective wisdom is forged in the crucible of life and grounded in daily life situations.
By coming together in groups to consciously generate collective wisdom, we believe we have the potential to heal conflicts that seem impossible to heal; embrace with compassion polarities and paradoxes that tear the fabric of our psyches and communities; and cultivate our capacities to love and forgive in groups splintered and polarized.

  Collective business system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A collective business system or collective business model is a business organization or association typically comprised of relatively large numbers of businesses, tradespersons or professionals in the same or related fields of endeavor, which pools resources, shares information or provides other benefits for their members.
In the past, collective business systems such as the trade association, the cooperative and the franchise were created to allow groups of independently owned businesses with common interests to successfully compete in the marketplace.
Presently, and for the foreseeable future, the inherent limitations of traditional collective business systems such as the trade organization, the cooperative and the franchise render them considerably less effective than they once were in advancing the business interests of their constituents.

 Collective Moral Responsibility [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Collective responsibility extends moral accountability beyond the relatively narrow scope of interpersonal relationships, but it remains a contested topic in moral philosophy.
Thus, for example, in parts of Africa and central Asia where life is difficult, the physical environment is challenging, and tribe and clan remain the primary social units, it is accepted practice for a family, a tribe, or a clan to be held liable and punished for wrongdoing perpetrated by one of its members.
Since outside directors come from the same business environment as well as the same educational and social backgrounds as “inside” directors, it has been suggested that outside directors be drawn from constituencies, such as employees, the community at large, or groups concerned with the well-being of the environment.

The collective administration of copyright rights is well established in some segments of the copyright industries, particularly music and art, but it is a relatively new means of transacting business in the media photography business.
This is a collective administration model, which provides for the licensing of copyright rights for both initial publication and republication rights of commissioned photography and for the licensing of the residual rights in non-commissioned photography.
When participating in the system, the photographer agrees not to file a suit for an unauthorized use by the participating user, but rather to rely upon the systems' determination of value in the event of the failure of a user to secure license for a reuse.

 EFF: A Better Way Forward: Voluntary Collective Licensing of Music File Sharing
Even though these collecting societies get a fair bit of criticism, there's no question that the system that has evolved for radio is preferable to one based on trying to sue radio out of existence one broadcaster at a time.
Because a collective licensing solution will depend on a single collecting society issuing blanket licenses covering all (or nearly all) music copyrights, there will need to be some antitrust regulation of the collecting society to ensure that it does not abuse its market power.
Copyright holders (and perhaps the collecting society itself) would continue to be entitled to enforce their rights against "free-loaders." Instead of threatening them with ruinous damages, however, the collecting society can offer stragglers the opportunity to pay a fine and get legal.

Fragmented business systems are characterized by low ownership and alliance integration of production chains, and inter-sectoral coordination is likewise restricted to relatively short term and highly personal linkages focused on quite narrowly specified associations.
These kinds of business systems often arise in societies where trust in formal institutions is low, authority is personal and the state is at best aloof and remote from private business, and at worst predatory and antagonistic to concentrations of privately controlled wealth, as in many developing countries.
Collaboration and collective organization can also be facilitated by strong chambers of commerce and by local banks that are dependent on the growth of the local economy for their own expansion and profits.

 Systems Thinking
Simply put, a system is an organized collection of parts (or subsystems) that are highly integrated to accomplish an overall goal.
If one part of the system is changed, the nature of the overall system is often changed, as well -- by definition then, the system is systemic, meaning relating to, or affecting, the entire system.
For example, there are biological systems (for example, the heart), mechanical systems (for example, a thermostat), human/mechanical systems (for example, riding a bicycle), ecological systems (for example, predator/prey) and social systems (for example, groups, supply and demand and also friendship).

 Dawning of Free Communities - Arthur Zajonc
As we take up the question of collective wisdom, it perhaps is useful to consider briefly those natural factors, both in ourselves and in our world, that lead to the development of collectives or groups of individuals.
In this way vocational groups have become not only a place of shared professional capacities, vision and ideals, but a collective of individuals, rather than a predetermined group based on lineage or the traditional values of the collective into which one happened to be born.
In those groups where individuals are required to sacrifice themselves for the collective we run the perennial risk of reverting to an old form, as opposed to discovering a new.
