In this week’s activity was introduced to us the Edward de Bono’s strategy of how to think in order to evaluate a project. It is a useful system that will help us to increase our productivity.
It is known as the “PARALLEL THINKING”.
What is “PARALLEL THINKING”?
“Parallel Thinking is an Alternative to Argument.
In Parallel Thinking each thinker puts forward his or her thoughts in parallel with the thoughts of others, rather than attacking the thoughts of others.
Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats method is a practical way of carrying out Parallel Thinking. This method is of fundamental importance because it provides us with a practical method of constructive thinking.
Parallel Thinking is a constructive alternative to argument or drifting discussion. It is important to understand this very fundamental nature of the Six Thinking Hats method in order to appreciate the importance of the method. The Six
Thinking Hats system provides an alternative to that most basic of thinking procedures: the argument.
Parallel Thinking guides thought processes in one direction at a time so we can effectively analyze issues, generate new ideas, and make better decisions.”
