Wearing Six Thinking Hats

This paper from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) outlines the process for using the six thinking hats techniques as a way to look at problems from a variety of different viewpoints.

"The Six Thinking Hats technique involves the use of metaphorical hats in discussions. Participants put on hats in turn, possibly more than once but not necessarily all of them, to indicate directions (not descriptions) of thinking." (Serrat, 2009)
