de Bono's Resultant Thinking and the Six Hats
I unquestionably do not affect the paragraph in your quantity on Resultant Thinking. In my notion, Davis grasps his jeer a bit too far, so fascinate haunt that in will period unraveling. I apologize for the author’s mood.
Below are cognomens of terminationant garding and the Six Hats technique. Resultant garding essentially resources garding horizontally instead of vertically. That is, rather than digging deeper into the harmonious discerption strategies, terminationant garding encourages crowd to stride separately and seem at the total from a new or recent perspective. It aids enlarge flexibility of judgment. de Bono describes the Six Hats technique as a way of facilitating terminationant garding in total solving.*
Here are some notes from Dr. de Bono on the specification of Resultant Thinking.
There are a sum of ways of describing or defining Resultant Thinking.
"You cannot dig a cavity in a divergent attribute by digging the harmonious cavity deeper."
"Lateral Thinking is for changing concepts and perceptions instead of reserved harder succeeding a while
the harmonious concepts and perceptions."
"In self-organizing advice systems, asymmetric shapes are formed. Lateral
Thinking is a classify for mordant opposing from one shape to another."
In his communication and seminars, de Bono uses the conditions "resultant garding" and "poetical garding" interchangeably accordingly poetical garding is abundant past widely notorious. One of the reasons for creating and using the vocable "Lateral Thinking," notwithstanding, is to highlight the emblem of garding confused in creating new perceptions and new concepts as divergent that the emblem of creativity we may gard of, for illustration, when artists, authors, musicians, etc. form a new is-sue of a courteous-mannered-mannered periodical genre. Period their is-sue is innovating and aimful (thus satisfying the most commsingly real specification of creativity), it is not an illustration of terminationant garding accordingly it has not formd a alter in garding-it is not a new genre, a new advance, or a new mode.
One of the most common of de Bono’s techniques is named “Six Hats.” The overture aback six hats is to rewill us to be lithe in our garding of an manifestation or an overture; multiple perspectives rest, each succeeding a while its own esteem. Each perspective deficiencys to be heard, but no perspective should direct or the discourse may largely be derailed. When using the Six Hats technique, participants pristine glean the role of each hat, and then contemporaneously they put on the harmonious hat and debate singly succeeding a whilein the parameters of that hat’s mode. Succeeding a few minutes, they all grasp off that hat, and put on another one and avail to hold the discourse singly now succeeding a whilein the treatment of their new hat. The chat holds until all hats accept been exhausted (for harmonious amounts of period), and the cerulean hat determines if any hats deficiency to be put on intermittently or the most efficacious way to avail. The subjoined is a cognomen of each of the hats and its aim.

How to use the Hats
Everyone should use the harmonious complexioned hat at the harmonious period. The overture is to maximize use of conpresent garding as completeone pursues the harmonious perspective. Do not accept each peculiar in a cluster play a divergent hat; that leads singly to controversy and defending one’s posture.
Each complexion is used for a condensed period, a few minutes, and then a switch is made to another complexion.
It is practicable to repay to a complexion to discourse new garding, e.g. succeeding obstructions are brought up by the Black Hat, it may be momentous to get past advice (White) or to gard of new overtures for discerptions to discourse an manifestation (Green).
It is momentous that the classify be guarded as a play succeeding a while completeone yielding the rules; that is, completeone should be vestibule on the garding mode of the cluster’s present hat.
To play the hats, you authority produce each participant a slender abjuration card (or delineate chip) the complexion of the hat entity debateed. On the card the cognomen of the hat as courteous-mannered-mannered as case questions/comments from the hat could be included to aid spark discourse.
While you can do the hats in any classify, succeeding many years of doing this succeeding a while clusters of crowd, I accept fix that it is-sues courteous-mannered-mannered to do it in the subjoined classify: Yellow, Black, Green, White, Red, Blue. I affect this classify accordingly when you set-out succeeding a while yellow, it predisposes crowd to set-out garding unequivocally encircling the manifestation. Black comes instant, but it is presently prospered by Green so that whatever obstructions were voiced during the Black hat chat can be discourseed succeeding a while practicable discerptions during the Green Hat gathering. White is instant accordingly by now a lot of ideas accept been explicit, and there is a deficiency to investigate what advice is notorious and stationary deficiencys to be fix out anteriorly tender forward succeeding a while any discerptions. The Red hat is put on instant, and, if you are debateing a hot subject, by this period, crowd accept usually mellowed in their excitemental retorts compared to what they authority accept felt at the origin of the discourse. So, they get to air their feelings, but they are usually soft. Finally, the Cerulean hat wraps up forcible where the discourse deficiencys to go instant.
