Each hat outlines a function. The white hat is where you outline the information needed – just the facts. The yellow hat is all about optimism. Only the positives are said here along with the benefits. The third hat is black and this is where you outline the difficulties and dangers. With the red hat, you simply describe your feeling towards the idea – what do you like, what do you dislike. The green hat is for creativity – what are the possibilities and alternatives that can be used if something happens. The blue hat is vital and is used as a control, to manage the other hats. There are a number of advantages to this method. It is fast and you can use subsets of the method to fit situational needs. It is also helpful to generate additional ideas and to reach resolutions quickly. Ideas can be quickly and easily shared also. I feel as though the most useful hat is the black one. It helps to predict problems and gives contingency plans if things go wrong.</p>
