A Very Powerful Tool --> The Six Thinking Hats

Six Thinking Hats

This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Six Thinking Hats is a book by Edward de Bono which describes a tool for group discussion and individual thinking involving six colored hats.

The Six Thinking Hats tool enables you to manage the thinking process. It's especially useful in meetings, as It encourages collaboration rather than argument, and unbundles the many types of thinking that may be going on within a group at the one time. A favourite tool I use myself when facilitating creative thinking sessions, the method is outlined here in this article on Wikipedia.

[Infographic] Transmedia storytelling in 5 steps

[Infographic] Transmedia storytelling in 5 steps | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it
by Craig Wilson"Its not easy being a brand storyteller in a transmedia world. Between constantly changing technology, tight budgets, and interaction from consumers in new and unprecedented ways; brand storytellers are being forced to create new transmedia experiences by integrating dynamic content, often co-created through audience participation."According to Getty Image’s latest infographic, effective transmedia storytelling offers consumers: more new experiences; longer extendable campaign lives; stronger emotional connections to brands; and, the ability for businesses to engage with new or jaded audiences to send brand loyalty soaring via this new media experience. For this reason, becoming effective storytellers in the transmedia marketplace is something that should be top of mind for marketers, advertisers and business decision makers."The good news is you don’t need to analyse the science behind effective brand storytelling as this new transmedia storytelling infographic has done it for you in five easy steps."

How Do You End A Transmedia Project? | Tribeca Film Institute | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it
"So you've done it. After year's of developing your transmedia project it's finally up and running. But is the end ever in sight? In most avenues of the arts there is an end game. Whether it be a self-imposed deadline or (more likely) one given to you, at some point someone wants to see the finished product. However, the thing about transmedia (at least on the web side of it) is it can go on, and on, and on."
