Lego Serious Play

Everyone has something unique and valuable to bring to discussions, decisions and outcomes. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology releases and enables individuals, team insights and imagination. People gain understanding and clarity regarding the identity and dynamics of their organization.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® materials and methodology are particularly effective when:

  • the subject is complex and multifaceted and there is a need to grasp the bigger picture, find connections and explore options and potential solutions
  • it is important to reach decisions which everyone commits to and honors after the meeting even though he or she does not agree 100%
  • asking each team member or participant the same question results in substantially different answers

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® materials are more effective when:

  • it is important that everyone participates in the discussions and contributes with his or her knowledge and opinions
  • you want to increase team understanding and at the same time avoid frustration
  • there are no obvious answers
  • you would like to gain new learning, insights and new ways of thinking
  • you want to create a level playing field for discussion
  • your meetings or learning events tend to focus more on the messengers than on the messages
  • you want to avoid excuses or lack of initiative after the meeting
  • there’s a risk participants feel they were not heard or involved in the decision
  • you want to ensure that all participants share a common understanding and frame of reference
