We live in a society that suffers changes every day, whether these policies are economic or technological. The world has been reinvented, as well as individuals and organizations. Before, we had workspaces segmented with working days, and today we have a constant and all-time interaction. With this, organizations need to readapt new staff profiles and employees to new business skills. The present work shows a reflection of the use of collaborative systems for business today. Although the interest of the companies maintain your knowledge in their boundaries, every day it is more spread in media that is unknown. Furthermore, importantly, we are in a new society of collective intelligence. This work aims to present a framework that provides the mapping of individual skills to support an organization. Using the collaborative assessment, it is believed that the collaboration is possible that couples identify each other's skills and support decision making by managers. As a result, we expect a large map of the mindset of the organization, materializing the concept of collective intelligence.

2. Personal Knowledge And Collective Intelligence

To Morin (2008), “intelligence is an earlier and external quality to human thought, if we define it as the ability to think, discuss, solve problems in complex situations (multiplicity of information, overlapping of inter-feedbacks, variations in the situation, uncertainties and risks). “It develops with the unfolding of personal and interpersonal activities in the various fields that an individual is immersed engaging the social sphere, economic, political and cultural. Often in regular and complex situations, intelligence is being challenged. So it goes beyond what can be measured by intelligence tests and is related to all surrounding the individual.

Another important factor is the behavior. Environmental culture tends to favor, according to Lewin (1951) behavior vectors. These vectors are “directions, the directions given to behavior or, in the opposite case, they are more or less barriers to self-expression.” If the individual realizes that the environment puts you in a favorable mood, their behavior will be favorable to the evolving situation or be repeated, otherwise your behavior will be denial.

The development and the flourishing of knowledge depends on a conducive political, economic and social environment, including formal and informal organizations. It is evident that today's society is marked by profound changes in their culture and socio existence, ranging across organizational and technological transformations, and that assimilates the result of accelerated advances in science and technology, requiring the replacement of reductionist and analytical methods of thought by a transdisciplinary approach, through the use of modern physics ideas and cybernetics, the open systems theory and vision complexity.
