Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

6 Thinking Hats

I’ll be using the six thinking hats method to solve problems during my projects.

White hat – Data

Red hat – Intuition and emotion

Black hat – All the bad points of the decision

Yellow hat – Positive thinking

Green hat – Creativity

Blue hat – Process control

Steps to solve my problems in Project One

  • What are the problems? There is very limited time on the project.
  • What are the symptoms? It has to appeal to a large audience.
  • What are the assumptions?
  • Is the evidence reliable? I will make sure my research is reliable to get the right information.
  • Is there missing information? There is no information given on the brief about what to create, which for me, makes it harder.
  • Is there another reason?

What structural devices do we have as storytellers to get my message across?
