six thinking hats
Speaking with a business acquaintance he mentioned the 6 thinking hats as a good way to nail a decision. After reading a little more about it, I think it provides a way to organize a brainstorm so that we get to have all the data and organize it. The hats are a way to look at the decision from different angle, and only one angle at a time, which focus the attention and allows for every thing to be said. A pattern is likely to emerge, through the tweaking hat (Green Hat) or from the fact there are so many negative things that it can't be considered a good thing to do. Have a read.
