Nearly thirty years after its design by Dr. Edward de Bono the Six Thinking Hats Framework is taking a step forward.
The eBook, "6-HatsThinkibility", to be written by Asa Jomard and Gijs van Beeck Calkoen, explores Six Hat Thinking in depth. And relevant scientific literature related to the thinking framework is examined.
For each Thinking Hat detailed thinking instructions and tools are given to help you perform better with that Thinking Hat. Other sources and ideas are also given. Because thinking is pattern bound, within each hat there is a need for Green Hat thinking. This will help breaking a seemingly logic thinking pattern.
As one of the first, the eBook will make full use of internet sources, like wikipages, music, pdf-files, movies, and how to's.
6-HatsThinkibilityaims at the experienced Six Hat Thinker.
However, an introduction to the Six Hat Thinking Framework is provided that is suitable for new or less experienced Six Hat Thinkers. It contains Dr. Edward de Bono's posted lectures on the YouTube, with some comments. The contents are summarized in colourful and visually attractive mind maps, which help to deepen your understanding of the thinking framework.
Part 1 is Downloadable for Free after your subscription to the 6-HatsThinkibility blog, which will give you a feeling what is coming forth.

Wow!...I congratulate both!.
I have some issues. In that language is written?.
I would like to ask a favor, if possible. I have some time thinking about writing my own books, and try his luck in the profession of writer. But no end of my mind.
Can you advise me on the procedure to edit a book?. That publishers?. How much money has cost?... etc.
I am interested in knowing the steps taken to get to write this e-book.
Perhaps, for some reason it does not want to answer me here. If you want you can send me a private message.
Wow!!...Os felicito a los dos!.
Tengo algunas cuestiones. En que idioma está escrito?.
Me gustaría pedir un favor, si es posible. Llevo un tiempo pensando en escribir mis propios libros, y probar suerte en el oficio de escritor. Pero no termino de decidirme.
Pueden asesorarme sobre el procedimiento para editar un libro?. Que editoriales?. Cuanto dinero ha costado?...etc.
Estoy interesado en conocer los pasos que han tomado para conseguir escribir ese libro electrónico.
Tal vez, por algún motivo no quiere contestarme por aquí. Si quieres puedes enviarme un mensaje privado.
Thanks, maybe you can translate it into Spanish!
We will post something here and on our blog about writing an eBook. Working with someone like Gijs makes is easier to try someone like this. Thanks Gijs for all your patience and support!
I like the idea of translating. But better to use automatic translator. LOL
I registered today.
Do I have to download I?. Can not find where is the download.
It send to my email?. I then have to wait. How long?.
Ahh, automatic translations. They do make you laugh;-) So many things can go wrong. . .
Thanks for your interest. When you subscribe the link is sent to you. It takes a while for the Feed Burner to update, and then depending upon when it it updated, Gijs or I will send the link. We do sleep sometimes and it may take a little longer in some cases;-) Usually not more than 10 hours.
OK, I have already received. It took less than 5 hours. Now it read it.
Thanks for your interest and also for all the great inspiration that you have provided us with;-)
It takes time for the subscription to come through but as soon as that is done the file with Part 1 should be all yours to download. Let us know if nothing happens.
thinkAbility. You two intrepid types may need an old anally retentive pedant like me to check your spelling and grammar because neither of you are native English speakers. Happy to help out on that.
Hi Kim, it is not an Ability;-) But thanks for your kind offer to help us non native English speakers. We might need help with other things;-)
Actually my love, I've just consulted three different dictionaries and none of them have a listing for either of "thinkibility" or "thinkability" - in fact, in typing both of these words on my Mac, the little read underline has appeared for both, confirming that my computer has heard of neither of these words! It appears you have invented a neologism. You are thus free to spell the word any way you want!
My spelling choice is based on the following straightforward recipe: thinking ability -> "think-ability" -> "thinkability".
Does "thinkibility" conjure the same connotations or is there some other reason for your spelling preference?
It's an excellent example of OPV.
Fantastic example, thank you very much.
May we use it in our eBook 6-HatsThinkibility?
We are fond of these kind of demonstrations, and we collect examples.
