It is well know that for igniting fission and starting the nuclear chain reaction critical mass is required.The same way for a quick total transformation of human thinking of all. It is not just enough to spread awareness about creative thinking,or train some people through mufti- level marketing approach. It is not enough that business community reap benefits from it.
While a number of NGOs have come forward and are actively engaged in social innovations,applying new innovative ideas…
Dear De Bono's community of thinkers
I'd like to present you the exercises I just completed on Po, from the book 'Teach your child how to think' page 198.
Because the next step is MOVEMENT, first i'd like you all could choose (or add) some of these provocations that seem the most provocative. Because they meant to be.
After this exercise, I would like to learn more about MOVEMENT and how to go from the Po to an actual new idea.
many thanks. Enrique…Continue

Have you heard about the Cynefin Framework?
Wikipedia definition: http://bit.ly/PPLpVz
YouTube explanation: http://youtu.be/N7oz366X0-8
Dave Snowden's framework aligns very well with Lateral Thinking. As a CognitiveEdge accredited practitioner, I've explored how we apply Serious Creativity techniques when in the Complex Domain. When I first learned about creating "safe-fail" experiment probes, it was…

"Design Competence instead of Political Reform" is an idea stated by Mr. R. Buckminster Fuller in his numerous writings such as "Education Automation" (1962). People can write all the legislation they want about stopping at bright red octagons with the word STOP on them (STOP signs) but there will continue to be accidents at the intersection until an overpass, underpass or cloverleaf is built. This idea was also applied by Mr. Fuller with respect to 'The World Game: How to make the world…Continue

I've been debating whether to up this one for a while because there are flams, double-beats and glitchy impact sounds that sound like the mixing is out 
But, I really can't bring myself to do a different one now: I really hate doing demos - They're exhausting 
So, I'm upping this one as it is - Hope you enjoy it nevertheless : )
 I did eight takes before I realised that…Continue
To encourage the use of Six Thinking Hats, I am the Special Interest Group (SIg) Leader on the 12manage.com website http://bit.ly/N4cYH9.
One of the fun things I do is search for interesting ways of applying 6TH. My latest discovery is over at Slideshare. Upside Learning has posted: How The 6 Thinking Hats Methodology Can Be Applied To Instructional Design.
Check it out: http://bit.ly/LfHHTD
When I log into IRC (Internet Relay Chat), I can choose to enter a chat room with a specific topic. I can even do that in forums. I would like to have software that also sets a Hat colour for the room (time setting optional) or has subrooms of each colour. The software should also record the room session and allow for the creation of a condensed executive summary of the logs for each hat colour. Logs can be viewed and items added by anyone after the live session. This way the parallel…Continue

I was looking at the CoRT Thinking.com website a few days ago. I just stumbled onto it looking for CoRT information on the web. Then today I saw a posting of the link in the CoRT group.
The website looks very good! They even have the Yak pictures! It uses PayPal for online payment with numerous credit cards. There is even a fund to support underpriviliged students. It should have been online one or two decades ago. Now, the lessons are old technology.
I would like to see software…

Thank you for the information regarding DeBono Global, Mr. Jones. Also, thank you for popping my perceptual bubble. I have never seen a prominently displayed reference to DeBono Global on any websites or with the books or CDs I have purchased. I also have never heard anyone mention Dr. de Bono or his ideas in public conversation and I have never seen advertising for Mr. de Bono's books or training other than on websites I have stumbled upon. Perhaps things are different in Europe than in…Continue

WARNING!!! This may be more of a rant than a blog.
Both Dr. de Bono and R. Buckminster Fuller have publicly stated that they will not promote their ideas. Dr. de Bono uses a saying about keeping his horns in his pockets. That's o.k. i guess. However, while some things may have a natural gestation rate and require patience, it seems a great tragedy to see CoRT and Dr. de Bono's other ideas getting recognition at what seems like a snail's pace over a period of several decades. The ideas…Continue
I'd like to know if someone can help me on how to extract concepts.
Mr De Bono says they breed ideas, and they are one of the key components in (for example) having a beautiful mind.
On the other hand, concepts are not definitions, neither practical ideas.
What would be the concept of the Human Hair (head) for example. Could something like our hair have a concept?
do concepts have anything to do with function?
for example a so-called "concept-car" is that…Continue
I've been threatening you with the second half of J77507U for two years now, but ... along with an extraordinary number of technical issues ... the last two years have been unexpectedly busy
It's been hanging over my head ... nagging away at me ... though - I haven't been losing sleep over it, but it has been a cause for a certain amount of background malaise in my life
I've done a number of demos in the meantime, which I haven't upped for various reasons ,…Continue
Leaders are needed to show people thepah that leads them to where they want to reach. A small child would need to hold hand of his mother when to show him the way to his school-first few times. One seeks passerby's help to find the way to a desired place in unknown town. But if one has access to google earth through his mobile he need not ask anyone. Likewise, business leaders,social leaders or that matter political leaders are required to lead us to the unknown future. Hoever,if we have…Continue
