Role of Chance in Lateral Thinking
Emmanuel Reyme, Director, United States, Member
De Bono's methodology to achieve lateral thinking is fantastic and logical.
The last aspect of the process may be subject to discussions. I do believe in the use of CHANCE to encourage ideas.
Strategic thinkers and intellectual thinkers reject the use of chance. Ideas are influenced and encouraged by facilitating integration. The concept of chance evoked by De Bono tells me ironically that the USA went to the moon by chance... We are all thinker and intellectual enough to absorb such a concept without a high level of analysis....
