Current Status of Six Thinking Hats? Hot News
Gary Wong, Consultant, Canada

On Friday, May 18, 2012, Edward De Bono was the keynote speaker at the FinanceMalta annual conference.
"Thinking skills expert Edward De Bono shared anecdotes and some jokes to demonstrate the effectiveness of parallel thinking and humour to problem-solving, analysis, and discussion. In his overview of lateral thinking and his trademarked Six Thinking Hats method for the financial services industry, Prof. De Bono warned that the lack of thinking to create value was one of the dangers facing the world.
A network of 700 trainers around the world communicate his Six Thinking Hats method which separates thinking into specific functions and roles, and which major organisations have adopted. Prof. De Bono, who is writing a book on the Creation of Value, said human thinking had “a long way to go”. Interestingly, hundreds of thousands of schools in China were working to imbue children with thinking skills, and India was following suit."

Introducing Six Thinking Hats® in Indonesia
Franciscus, Teacher, Indonesia
I'm currently trying to introduce Six Thinking Hats® for students and Cort® in Indonesia. Apparently there are many people that don't know anything about Professor De Bono works. We are having a hard time to introduce the programs in Indonesia.

Challenges in Indonesia

@Franciscus: Hi, can you enlighten me and the forum members on the challenges you are facing? Is this a mindset problem where decision-makers don't understand the value? Is it you don't have sufficient people resources? Funding?
Instead of starting at the top trying to get a formal training program approved, I've been in situations where I was facilitating a dysfunctional meeting. I suggested six thinking hats as a way out. After a 5 minute introduction, the participants were making much better use of their time together.
I'd like to believe that we forum members as individuals and a collective can help you.
