Developer's Description

Six Thinking HatsOne of the issues with groups of people trying to think creatively is that individuals will criticise the ideas of others and derail creative thinking. The Six Thinking Hats was a tool developed by Dr. Edward de Bono to aid effectivediscussions and thinking by aligning everyone in one of six states of mind:Neutrality (White) - considering purely what information is available, what are the facts?Feeling (Red) - instinctive gut reaction or statements of emotional feeling (but not any justification)Negative judgement (Black) - logic applied to identifying flaws or barriers, seeking mismatchPositive Judgement (Yellow) - logic applied to identifying benefits, seeking harmonyCreative thinking (Green) - statements of provocation and investigation, seeing where a thought goesProcess control (Blue) - thinking about thinkingIt is very easy when considering a subject to jump to your preferred conclusion. De Bono's six thinking hats gives you a systematic way of considering the subject from different perspectives (using different states of mind) and in doing so to be more complete and effective.Dr de Bono proposes that there are five distinct states of the brain each withitsown distinct chemical state. Ineach state the brainwill focus on different aspects of the subject being discussed (no evidence of the brain states was presented).Blue Hat - The Big PictureUnder this hat the participants focus on the thinking process itself:What is the objectiveWho is going to facilitateCapture outputsEvaluate progressDecide on any change of planWhite Hat - Facts and InformationParticipants are asked to focus on making statements of fact:What information do you have (define what is involved, changes over time, physical locations etc)?When you analyze the information what can you conclude?Are there gaps in the information?You avoid giving your interpretation - facts onlyRed Hat - Intuition, Feelings and EmotionWhen wearing the redhat participants focus on what their intuition, feelings and gut is telling them:Whatare your immediate reactions, thoughts, ideas?Avoid analysisCapture output quickly for example use post-it notesThis phase of the six thinking hats process canbeover quicklyonce the first wave ofoutput has been captured.
