    According to both corporate governance codes and company law the directors of a company have a collective responsibility. This article explores collective, or collegiate, decision-making and, perhaps more importantly, collective responsibility. The collective responsibility of directors is currently operationalized only by converting it into an individual responsibility and liability. The purpose of this article is to reveal how a more openly collective approach to board responsibilities and board liabilities could be useful and practical despite the fact that its theoretical basis may require some metaphysical spookiness.
