The de Bono Group - Six Thinking Hats

You're currently on {{currently_on}}. However, it looks like you listened to {{listened_to}} on {{device_name}} {{time}}.

Explain to the team the meaning of the hats below. If people are not used to them, a sheet of paper each with the colors and explanations clearly displayed on them.

It can be a good idea to have a little bit of practice first, to help people get used to the idea and how to use them.

When you have been regularly using this method in a team for a while, you will not need to explain or even discuss them. People will naturally start sentences, with such as 'Well, in a Black Hat way, I would say that...'.

Hi,
         Recently i read an article which says about six thinking hats. The six hats are givin below.
1. Whit Hat     :   Encourages about data, facts and figures
2. Red Hat      :   Allows for expressing emotion
3. Black Hat   :   Allows for critical thinking
4. Yellow Hat :   For optimistic thoughts about the +ve aspects of a  
                          concept
5. Green Hat :    For growing ideas and allowing for creative thinking
6. Blue Hat   : To put on when you need to get yourself organized.
         Any comments on how to use these hats in six sigma implementation.
thanks & regards
A.Sridhar
 

De Bono suggests that everyone in the meeting ‘wear’ the same colored hat at the same time, as opposed to each member of the team wearing a different colored hat. The book is still in print and is worth the read.
