a great strategic move: 2nd tier heroes who won't make it to big screen deployed for TV shows. Spinning an old asset is always one of the best marketing decisions you can make.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, November 9, 2013 5:36 PM

Disney/Marvel has inked a rather epic deal with Netflix: four series with 13 episodes each, all leading up to a final team-up miniseries. The subjects of those series: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. And if that wasn’t a sweet enough deal for fans, the deal is also part of a broader arrangement between the two that grants Netflix exclusive, first-run subscription rights to Disney and Marvel films - See more at: http://www.thenerdmachine.com/marvel-at-netflix-intersecting-comics-and-transmedia/#sthash.VrVc0Tpb.dpuf

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.
