THE SIX HATS METHOD
Thinking algotithm when taking decisions.
How to use these six hats?
What do they mean?
Is taken on at the beginning of discussions to start thinking and decide what we want to archieve. This hat is to watch the process itself and control it (marking targets, summing up).
The Red hat means emotions, intuition, feelings and premonitions. You need prove nothing. Just tell what feelings the idea provokes.
The black color reminds of the court and strict judje. This hat means criticism and evaluation. It reveals drawbacks and risks and tells us why something can go wrong.
White color usually reminds of the paper. When taking the White Hat on we focus on the information which weneed to take decision: only figures and facts.
It is all about plants, growth, energy and life. The Green Hat means creativity, idea generation, development of unorthodox approach and alternative points of view.
Yellow is the color, symbolizing optimism and light of the sun. When we take on the Yellow hat, we try to find advantages of the idea, its perspectives and possible wins. Also we try to see the hidden resourses.
We want to farm salmon and supply to the US market 100 kgs of fish monthly
I know, that's just what I want.
Salmon can see no demand. There is crysis at the moment everywhere, so demand will only drops. There is a tough European competition
(figures and facts)
Fresh salmon meat costs 4.54 USD per Kilo. Wild salmon gets extinct, and farming can help meet ever encreasing demand.
(idea generation, development of unorthodox approach)
There is a neglected farm with a pond 2 miles away from the town. Infrastructure is almost preserved.
We need only do some renvations and restore cages.
Salmon farming is a well established industry. This part of country does not suffer from natural disasters, so we can be protected from sudden loses and damage.
