FONSECA ZARATE, Carlos Hildebrando; GARCIA UBAQUE, Juan Carlos  and  GARCIA BENITEZ, Paula Fernanda. Collective intuition and alternative statistics to hit. Tecnura [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.63, pp.57-67. ISSN 0123-921X.


The world varies quickly in the Anthropocene due to sensitive socio-ecological systems. Latin America evidences great distances between statistics and realities. It is then necessary to have new tools for evaluation and prediction that offer hopeful, efficient and secure alternatives both for society and nature.


Two planification instruments are combined through the Principal Component Analysis (PCA): the "Índice de Desarrollo Territorial Sustentable (IDTS)" with data form 2000-2010 of Colombia and her municipality, department and capital city, and that of "Planificación Estratégica Participativa con Escenarios Tridimensionales Territoriales (PET2)" regarding territorial intellectual wealth


Thematic convergences and divergences were established between the statistical reality (IDTS) and the perception, intuition and interests of agents, particularly important those related with knowledge construction: academic/scientific, business/engineering and ancestral/collective.


In a epistemological and ontological level it is necessary to know the convergence or divergence between reality and statistics, and therefor between the rulers and the ruling perceptions. In a pragmatic level it is evident that the established tools are useful and easy to handle so that using them (either together or not) can provide relevant and valuable information.


Understanding the Anthropocene, in its dynamic as a socio-ecological and social decision-making system, grants a better comprehension of the needs and expectations of the people. That's why it is necessary to check the criteria and tools for evaluating, follow up and decision-making.
