Example of Six Thinking Hats : Technical Environment

I often use it with engineers and R&D managers to get them to focus away from their innate Black & White thinking and more on the Red, Yellow and Green. In my experience it can work for some but often their thinking is so ingrained over 20+ years, it is unrealistic to expect significant change, especially in a workshop setting where this is only a tool and not the reason for being there.

Example of 6 Thinking Hats: Identifying Pros and Cons of IT Solutions

The use of this fantastic tool is not restricted to any process, team or specific work type. You can practically use it for anything from work to personal life as well. I have successfully used this in IT to identify the pros & cons of a specific improvement and why people think it would work or why it wouldn't. This helps eliminate bias in people's thoughts hence helping more structured & fruitful brainstorming.
