De Bono's Six Thinking Hats

Usando Storyboarding y los Seis Sombreros de Pensamiento de Bono

Por Marissa Martinez

Los Six Thinking Hats, un concepto articulado por Edward de Bono, es una poderosa herramienta para la lluvia de ideas y la innovación. Al dividir los pensamientos en seis áreas "paralelas" o "laterales", permite que un espectro de pensamiento, desde el sentimiento intestinal hasta el análisis de datos, sea discutido por separado. Mediante el uso de estos seis tipos de pensamiento de una manera estructurada, los grupos pueden abordar más eficazmente la resolución de problemas.

Texto del Guión Gráfico

  • Quarterly profit is down 1.3% compared to last year.
  • Retention remained steady. A drop in sales accounts for almost all of it.
  • Alright, let's take 45 minutes to work on solutions. It appears the problem is in sales. Green Hats on! Take three minutes to brainstorm.
  • Alright, White Hats on first. What does the quarterly report tell us?
  • We could cut commissions for the bottom 5% of sales staff.
  • Alright. What is good about cutting commissions?
  • We could offer incentives, like prizes for the top sales people.
  • It is guaranteed to reduce costs.
  • From a high-level perspective, it may decrease long-term turnover. Sales staff we'd have to let go may choose to leave instead.
  • It could also incentivize better sales figures.
  • This may be more of a Red Hat point, but I feel like it could make the sales staff angry.
  • The incentives are unpredictable and cutting costs doesn't really help us grow in the long term.
  • Does anyone else have Red Hat reactions?
  • This sounds like a strong idea. Any drawbacks? What doesn't work?
  • I agree. It makes me feel bad to just cut commissions.
  • What I'm hearing is that the intangible drawbacks outweigh the potential gains.
  • Is there a way to mitigate these concerns?
  • That also addresses a black hat point I had about the prizes: the cost of prizes can be completely covered by savings on commissions.
  • Prizes would mitigate the negative aspects of the commission cuts.
  • We could combine the two ideas!
  • I like where this is going. I think we need to run the numbers to see what likely results are.
