Six Thinking Hats

Posted by Rishil Babu

Six Thinking Hats is a useful technique that helps a manager to look at important decisions from a number of different perspectives helping him to analise important decisions.

When teams engage in six hats thinking they are practicing parallel thinking — everyone is using the same tool at the same time on the same challenge. This speeds up the discussion saving everyone time. Each person’s unique thinking on the challenge is included which ensures a stronger solution is implemented, supported and is well thought out.

It allows necessary emotion and skepticism to be brought into what would otherwise be purely rational decisions. It opens up the opportunity for creativity within Decision Making. The technique also helps, for example, persistently pessimistic people to be positive and creative.

Each ‘Thinking Hat’ is a different style of thinking. Check out the six thinking hat video below.
