The problem investigated in this paper is the distribution of goals addressed to a group of rational agents. Those agents are characterized by their ability (i.e. what they can do), their knowledge about the world and their commitments. The goals of the group are represented by conditional preferences. In order to deduce the actual goals of the group, we determine its ability using each agent’s ability and we suppose that the agents share a common knowledge about the world. The individual goals of an agent are deduced using its ability, the knowledge it has about the world, its own commitments and the commitments of the other agents of the group.
