LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) is a method that uses LEGO bricks as metaphorical models that represent brands, businesses or products. It is designed to hands-on boost innovative thinking and professional performance. Through facilitated workshops using LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method and material, every participant gains a deeper understanding and commitment by listening to all people involved.
With increasing complexity of the business environment, researchers and practitioners at the LEGO Company sought for more effective methods for businesses to meet the everlasting challenge of doing things better. Its fundamentals lie in studies about organizational development, tutoring and psychology.
Over several years the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method has been redefined by the LEGO Group as a way for enhancing innovative thinking, communication and collaboration in boardrooms, offices and the shop floor among teams and individuals. The concept has been used by LEGO itself to reinvent its business model and to define a new strategy. Today, the LEGO Group is the most successful toy manufacturer in the world.
When observing a facilitated workshop using the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method and material, you will soon realize that it is highly efficient: For the business’ benefit, it gets more out of the people in shorter time. However, a workshop using the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method still respects the opinion of every individual by involving everyone equally. Every member of a LSP workshop participates equally in the discussion, the storytelling and therefore contributes to a deeper understanding. By doing so, it builds up everyone’s commitment and confidence about the upcoming tasks.
