The 6 Thinking Hats designed by Edward DeBono can be a great help in meetings for any type of team trying to get work done.  For example, the 6 hats work well in decision-making and problem solving meetings.  The black and yellow hats can be used to explore both the risky and beneficial aspects of an idea in a rational way.  The blue and green hats help with controlling the meeting and encouraging creative thinking.  Whereas the white and red hats require analysis of data while allowing a safe way to express emotions tied to an idea.


The following table is a one-word descriptor for each hat color:

Blue = Control

Green = Creative

Yellow = Positive Black = Negative
Red = Feeling White = Fact
