  • 4. Edward De Bono  Edward de Bono was born in Malta on 19 May 1933.  He is a physician, author, inventor and consultant.  He has had a major impact on the way we think and particularly in the field of creativity.  Edward de Bono coined the phrase lateral thinking.  According to him lateral thinking is, “creativity involves braking out of established patters in order to look at things in a different way”
  • 5.  Dr. de Bono meant to differentiate lateral thinking.  Dr. de Bono has created several techniques to help apply lateral thinking to solve problem .  They are as follows :1. Think of as many different alternatives for solving a problem as you possibly can. 2. Challenge any assumptions you may have about your problem; and insert random elements which will encourage you to look at the problem from a different and unexpected perspective.

Red hat • Look at the decision using intuition, gut reaction, emotion. • Also try to think how other people will react emotionally. Black hat • Look at all the bad points of the decision. • Look at it cautiously and defensively.
  • 12. Yellow hat • Helps you to think positively. • It is the optimistic viewpoint that helps you to see all the benefits of the decision and the value in it. Green hat • The Green Hat stands for creativity. • This is where you can develop creative solutions to a problem. Blue hat • The Blue Hat stands for process control. • This is the hat worn by people chairing meetings.
