In recent years, positive correlations between some factors of collaborative group task processes and the increasing of collective intelligence (CI) have been presented. This work introduces an hypothesis that argues the existence of a new factor of positive influence for the increasing of collective intelligence in collaborative group tasks operating in cooperative environments: self-determination. Therefore, we present an argumentation based on Cooperative Multiagent Systems that spotlights the significance of self-determination in these particular environments. Furthermore, we also introduce a preliminary design of an experimental setup and a methodological framework for validating the hypothesis empirically in human organizations. Our propose consists on measuring, on the one hand, the level of self-determination from the individuals that participate on the decision-making processes, and on the other hand, on measuring the level of collective intelligence achieved by performing collaborative group task. Finally, we propose to use statistical analysis to explore if there are positive correlations between self-determination and collective intelligence in cooperative environments, such as collaborative organizations.
