No matter what product or service you offer, at some point you’ve been in a brainstorming session. Often this can start as a regular meeting and evolve into the flowing of ideas. Our latest free tool will allow you to put some structure to your brainstorming and get the most from it.
Why don’t you tell us what experiences you have had with brainstorming, and what techniques have worked and not worked for you?
We’ve all been through brainstorming sessions and come out with tons of ideas… Some good, some not so good. Our latest free tool will help you and your team assess those brainstorming ideas and look at them from different perspectives.
Originally developed by Edward De Bono, the exercise is called the 6 thinking hats. It is designed to encourage evaluation and exploration of ideas by looking at them from different ‘hats’.
For example the ‘White Hat’ is the neutral viewpoint, it focuses on the facts, and doesn’t make any assumptions.
The ‘Black Hat’ is the negative viewpoint, when using the black hat you focus on the flaws, weaknesses and cons of the idea in question.
Follow the link to find out more about the 6 thinking hats technique and start getting more out of your brainstorming sessions today.
