Use Six Thinking Hats to Structure Brainstorming Sessions
Gary Wong, Premium Member
I suggest using the Six Thinking Hats method to organize thinking in a brainstorming session:
1. Start by wearing a Blue hat as a facilitator and explain the purpose of the session and the meeting rules.
2. Then ask everyone to put on a White hat and share relevant background information.
3. Now switch to the Green hats and generate new ideas.
4. Change to the Yellow hats to identify the positives and benefits of ideas.
5. Gather negative concerns such as Groupthink with the Black hats.
6. Check emotions under the Red hats.
7. Finally, summarize the session outcomes as the Blue hat facilitator.
