The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is an innovative process designed to enhance innovation and business performance.

Based on research which shows that this kind of hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities, the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in the organisation.

We are proud to have Certified Facilitators in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Methodology.

Why LEGO Serious Play?

At its core, it is about solving complex issues by building models using LEGO bricks. The metaphors in the models serve as the basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing and problem solving and help foster creative thinking and finding unique solutions

All facilitated LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops are group processes and designed around a relatively limited number of powerful core concepts. These conceptual modules can be configured in multiple ways to best meet your needs. A workshop based on the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® materials and methodology varies in the number of participants and duration depending on the topic. Usually one full-day session is effective. Short sessions last 3-4 hours. The longest sessions may extend to three days

Organisations, whether private or public, use the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology when they want to unlock the full potential of their employees – and to encourage everyone to participate, contribute and commit to the solution Typically, workshops focus on challenging issues or developing strategies.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method is a facilitated meeting, communication and problem-solving process in which participants are led through a series of questions, probing deeper and deeper into the subject. Each participant builds his or her own 3D LEGO® model in response to the facilitator´s questions using specially selected LEGO® elements. These 3D models serve as a basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem-solving and decision making.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method is a technique which improves group problem-solving. By utilising visual, auditory and kinesthetic skills, the Method requires participants to learn and listen, and it provides all participants with a voice. The Method serves as a shared language regardless of culture or position. It is also a method that requires a trained LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator.

By using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® materials and methodology participants will explore the relationships and connections between people and their world, observe the dynamics both internal and external, explore various hypothetical scenarios, and gain awareness of the possibilities.

During the facilitated meeting, participants will be building landscape models with LEGO elements, giving them meaning through story-making, and playing out various possible scenarios – a process which deepens understanding, sharpens insight, and socially “bonds” together the group as it “plays” together.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Methodology will guide participants into a free and honest exchange of opinion. The physical and tangible construction allows participants to have conversations which flow without the fear of treading on personal feelings. Participants will experience that the real issues are addressed, and ultimately participants will be able to see things through the eyes of their colleagues – and have them view the picture through each others.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is a radical, innovative, experiential process designed to enhance business performance. It is based on the belief that everyone can contribute to the discussion, the decisions and the outcome.

The use of LEGO® elements enables you to take a speedy shortcut to the core. The LEGO elements work as a catalyst – and when used for building metaphors, they trigger processes that you probably were previously unaware of.

Workshop participants leave with skills to communicate more effectively, to engage their imagination more readily, and to approach their work with increased confidence, commitment and insight.
