Six Thinking Hats: An Essential Approach to Business Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your success in business depends on how well you think.

Six Thinking Hats can help you think better-with its practical and uniquely positive approach to making decisions and exploring new ideas. It is an approach that thousands of business managers and corporate leaders around the world have already adopted with great success.

"The main difficulty of is confusion," writes Edward de Bono, long recognized as the foremost international authority on conceptual thinking and on the teaching of thinking as a skill. "We try to do too much at once. Emotions, information, logic, hope, and creativity all crowd in on us. It is like juggling with too many balls."

The solution? De Bono unscrambles the thinking process with his "six thinking hats":

  • White Hat: neutral and objective, concerned with facts and figures
  • Red Hat: the emotional view
  • Black Hat: gloomy and negative, the "devil's advocate" hat
  • Yellow Hat: sunny and positive
  • Green Hat: associated with fertile growth, creativity, and new ideas
  • Blue Hat: cool, the color of the sky, above everything else-the organizing hat
Through case studies and real-life examples, Dr. de Bono reveals the often surprising ways in which deliberate role-playing can make you a better thinker. He offers a powerfully simple tool that you — and your business, whether it's a start-up or a major corporation — can use to create a climate of clearer thinking, improved communication, and greater creativity. His book is an instructive and inspiring text for anyone who makes decisions, in business or in life.

Synopsis:

A classic besteller that presents de Bono's model of the mind, which remains as insightful as it was when first published in 1969

The Mechanism of Mind presents Edward de Bono’s original theories on how the brain functions, processes information, and organizes it. It explains why the brain, the "mechanism," can only work in certain ways and introduces the four basic types of thinking that have gone on to inform his life’s work, namely "natural thinking," "logical thinking," "mathematical thinking," and "lateral thinking." De Bono also outlines his argument for introducing the word "PO" as an alternative to the word "NO" when putting lateral thinking into practice. Drawing on colorful visual imagery to help explain de Bono's theories and thought-processes, from light bulbs and sugar cubes to photography and water erosion, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of how the mind works and organizes information—and how Edward de Bono came to develop his creative thinking tools.

Synopsis:

Using case studies and real-life examples of his "six thinking hats", de Bono shows how each of us can become a better thinker through deliberate role-playing.
