The Collective Regulative Bundle merges some of the activities that individuals, groups, organizations and agencies perform to improve their being and doing. It is conceived as the bundling of the regulative cycles that individuals in a group perform, with the aim to achieve synergies.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an example of a Collective Regulative Bundle. Its interactions are characterized on a separate page.

See the figure for a depiction of a work environment and process that are conducive for performing a collective regulative bundle in a territory.


A collective regulative bundle methodology builds upon a facility for sharing certain programme and project artefacts by all in the group. Such a group can be small, for example the workers on a farm, or big, for example all inhabitants of a country, or all living members of mankind.
