Six Thinking Hats - Structuring Creative Thinking (Parallel Thinking Technique)

"Six Thinking Hats" is a way of approaching and investigating an issue, change, or process from a variety of perspectives in a clear, conflict-free way. This can be done by an individual, by team members each wearing a different hat(s), or by a group ‘wearing the same hat’ in a sequential order. Large complex issues can also be set up with six separate teams meeting with representatives from each meeting to assess all perspectives.
