Overview

Six Thinking Hats® is a powerful technique that helps us to explore different perspectives towards a complex situation or challenge. It simplifies thinking by creating focus on one thing at a time, and allows us to engineer switch in thinking without offending others. It has been proven to significantly reduce meeting times, improve the quality and speed of brain-storming and decision-making, and improve thinking productivity. In this summary, we’ll give a brief overview of the 6 Hats methodology, and each of the 6 hats.

The main challenge of thinking is trying to juggle too many things all at once. The Six Hats allow us to systematically focus on different aspects of a situation or decision, so we become more focused yet see a more complete picture. Each of the Six Thinking Hats represents a different style of thinking. The participants can explore all perspectives by using the 6 hats, one at a time.

Six Hats is a parallel thinking technique.

  • There are many benefits to using this method, including
  • More power: We are now fully utilizing the thinking capacity, experience and knowledge of all the group members.
  • Save time: There is no longer a need to respond out of politeness, or to argue every point of view. Meetings can take half to one-fifteenth of the time.
  • Remove ego: There is no ego to be exerted from attacking and putting down others, to get your way or show off how clever you are. The only way to exert your ego with Six Hats is to be a good thinker.
  • Simple: By focusing on one thing at a time, it is easier to manoeuvre complex tasks/ challenges and get a full picture at the end.
