The integration of advanced technology in management and decision making is a continuous effort for organizational optimization. This paper focuses on developing a teaming requirements elicitation process using AI and Blockchain technologies under the democratic knowledge management perspective. AI will be primarily addressed via Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Expert Systems and Fuzzy Logic, but also through the integration of cognitive sciences that can contribute effectively on the selection of team members in team building. Furthermore, Blockchain maximizes the company’s potential through personnel growth and diversity by supplementing AI on understanding deeper the capacity and competence teams have on responding to changes through continuous learning from each experience. This integration of AI and Blockchain in corporate teaming will be driven through the Company Democracy Model as the base framework for co-evolutionary processes development allowing an essential mutation from autocratic to liberal democratic leadership, and from skill-based to knowledge-based human capitalization.
