The Six Hats

The Six Thinking Hats is extremely simple and powerful. This powerful simplicity, together with the practical nature of the method, has led to its adoption by major corporations, among them IBM, NTT, Bell Canada, Federal Express, British Telecom, Sunlight Services, Miter HL, Eli Lilly, BA, BAA and Rockwell International

It helps us to move away from narrow-mindedness, one way thinking and fixed positions. Instead we view things in a collaborative rather than adversarial way, allowing us to see new opportunities.

 

 

  • Blue Hat- Management of the thinking process

  • White Hat- Factual information

  • Red Hat- Emotions and gut feeling

  • Yellow Hat- Optimistic thinking

  • Black Hat- Critical thinking

  • Green Hat- Creative thinking

 

Where can I use the Hats?

Six Thinking Hats® helps develop the full thinking potential of teams. When used as a meeting management tool, the Six Hats method ensures individuals are focused and to the point.

Most importantly, it allows whole teams look at all sides of an issue cohesively and without confrontation. All of this in a fraction of the time traditional methods take.

Employees benefit from the way the Six Hats method puts everyone on an equal footing in meetings where several employee levels are present.

This framework is now widely used around the world. It is used by top executives at some of the world’s largest corporations (Siemens, Bosch, British Telecom, Prudential, ABB, 3M, Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia etc).

Meeting times are usually reduced to one quarter or even one tenth of the time that they used to.

The process encourages your people to separate fact from opinion. You will be shown how to turn seemingly insoluble problems into real opportunities.

Furthermore you will:

Increase productivity and make more effective decisions.

Generate an abundance of creative solutions.
