Why LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®?

Looking for a way to fast-track to the real issues?

How do you leverage the expertise within your organisation?

Can you transform decisions into shared goals for the whole organisation?

Build your way to better business through LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®

When we speak or write about complex issues we inevitably simplify and reduce the amount of information in order to make ourselves and our message more eas­ily understood.

Especially when discussing business issues, it’s easy to leave out relevant details in order to make the overall picture clear. In some cases, this simplification is okay – but more often the key to your problems lies in the details.

About LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a hands-on language for business – a tool that lets your mind form and organise new thoughts.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® process uses bricks to visualise situations and enhance business performance. The bricks create metaphors for real business issues and will allow you to address complex issues without simplifying or losing the important details.

By gathering participants and literally bringing – and building – situations to life, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® invites you to look at reality in a new and objective way. The three-dimensional landscape you build using LEGO bricks provides valuable insight into the ways your company works and how they connect with the outside world.

  • Change management
  • Stimulate entrepreneurship
  • Surface hidden issues and challenges

How it Works

Why it Works

Advantages

  • LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® invites all participants to take an active part in the process. The common language – the bricks – treats everyone as equals and allows all opinions and aspects to be heard. In a very direct way, you will be able to see what everyone knows inside the company – and what they don’t know they know. From there, it’s easy to move into action.
  • Insights made using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® are immediately actionable. Because the insights come from the people who will implement them, ideas don’t have to be introduced and anchored – they can be set into motion right away.
  • What LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® provides is an efficient tool for crafting the solution to strategic issues and challenges confronting the organisation or the division.
  • By giving people this new way to communicate, they will be able to identify problems and formulate action plans that deal with the real issues – not the symptoms.
  • Using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, participants will be clearer on objectives, actions and on the Simple Guiding Principles for the organisation. Consequently, business strategies will be much more comprehensive and coherent – and in a deeper way that creates actionable ideas.
