The Six Thinking Hats method introduces a common language which enables parallel thinking across the organization. Proper application of this technique dramatically improves participation / engagement, meeting and decision-making productivity and opens the door to creativity across the organization.
Given the accelerating pace of change in the world, tools to improve creativity (lateral thinking) are becoming more and more critical to success. Historically, managers and professionals have been trained to plan, organize and control work processes with the objective of improving efficiency and effectiveness – very little energy has been focused on improving creative thinking skills. Lateral Thinking, created by one of the world’s leading experts in creative thinking methods – Dr. Edward de Bono – offers tools and techniques that, when applied, actually increase both the ability to think creatively and the velocity of thought.
