Topic – de Bono’s Thinking Hat Method for Risk Assessment


This talk is about how can one use de Bono’s Thinking Hat method to do a risk assessment.
de Bono’s method is a popular ‘Problem Solving’ technique based on “Parallel Thinking” approach where the group wears similar “Hats” while discussing or brainstorming to avoid confrontation and to come to a conclusion.

Using this approach, testers can wear the “hats” of different stakeholders to come up with different risks that may occur, thereby weigh the risks and make informed testing decisions.
