Collective Intelligence

“Collective intelligence is a dynamic between culturally interconnected co-managers (soft) and on an organisational level (hard), combined around shared visions”. Vincent Lenhardt

This definition shows the difference between collective intelligence and centralised intelligence: traditionally, in centralised companies, it is those at the top who make the choices, implement them and give the orders, check that the orders are correctly applied, and, if need be, take corrective measures.

Collective intelligence is distributed throughout the entire system. It combines and potentializes individual intelligence, merging it into a global intelligence, significantly exceeding the sum of all the individuals.
