The six hat method was developed by Edward de Bono who described it in his book Six Thinking Hats. This method is used by a number of major corporations all over the world, such as IBM, Du Pont, NTT and many more.

The THINKING HATS game supports brainstorming, and is also a great tool for closing the pre-implementation training in order to diagnose players’ attitudes to change and work on the change.

The game can be used in the production, office and warehouse environment.
