PMI Chart

PMI Charts are a type of chart, a graphic organizer in which a student examines the Plusses, Minuses, and Interesting things (or Implications) associated with a topic, decision, or idea.

For example, a student can use a PMI chart to help organize their thoughts about making a decision (like getting a pet), evaluating the pros and cons of a debate topic (like examining the implications of the adoption of a new invention), or comparing the advantages and disadvantages of an action (like thinking about what would happen if going to school was not mandatory). For more complex decision (choosing from multiple alternatives), use decision making graphic organizers.

PMI charts were formalized by Edward de Bono in 1992.
Reference. Edward de Bono, Serious Creativity, HarperBusiness, New York, US, 1992.
