Edward de Bono’s Thinking Course

 

I have now used various tool sets from this book in multiple deliberate settings.

The first was using the set of decision-making frameworks.
I worked with a group of met-cognition lovers, fans of mental models, and walked them through a problem that each of them was grappling with.

We did it as a blind exercise – I didn’t need to know the problem, but instead they kept that to themselves.
The process worked. Everyone in the group experienced resolving an issue to some degree.
