Constant change, new technologies and global challenges characterize today’s working environment. Companies and organizations must be able to adapt quickly and respond flexibly to change. In such a volatile environment, technical skills alone are insufficient to meet the demands of a constantly evolving and complex working environment. Instead, effective collaboration, communication, empathy, and creative thinking lead to innovative solutions. The creative method LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is based on the principles of constructionism, communication and simplification of complex issues and thus offers an effective approach for the rapid development of solutions.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®” - More than just playing? What is behind “LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®”?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® makes problems and solutions understandable and thus makes workshops and meetings creative and varied again. LEGO® bricks are no longer just for playing with; they also stimulate creative thought processes. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops are used to develop complex solutions to problems, define goals, or illustrate and understand complex relationships. The cooperative, structured process involves all participants, the results are clear to everyone, team building is promoted, and the feeling of co-determination is strengthened.

In addition, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® :

  • Scientifically proven
  • Established: LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is used by a range of companies, from small businesses to international corporations such as GOOGLE, Samsung, and NASA
  • Based on a structured process that offers enough room for creativity
  • Unlimited number of participants
  • Suitable for numerous topics

Shape it, till you make it! LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® helps to develop quick, creative solutions in a complex world.

For what is the method suitable?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is suitable wherever complex issues exist. For example, this method (online and offline) is already being used successfully for:

  • Strategy workshops
  • Innovation workshops
  • Development of visions and processes
  • (Further) development of products and services
  • Team building
  • Kick-off workshops (milestones, dependencies, responsibilities, task packages are defined/allocated)
  • Retrospective
  • Change management process
  • Coaching (individual and group coaching)
  • Conflict management
  • Meetings

Building with your hands improves concentration, focus, and inspiration.

What are the advantages of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® compared to conventional methods?

  • Hand before head: By creating something with our hands, we initiate creative thought processes to find concrete solutions to complex issues. Building with our hands promotes concentration, focus, and inspiration.
  • “Out-of-the-box thinking”: The process “forces” participants to simplify thoughts, ideas, and concepts so that they can be recreated with LEGO® bricks and described with the help of metaphors.
  • Thoughts become tangible: Metaphors and model-like illustrations promote understanding, create images, and remain in people’s minds.
  • Communication becomes easier: By describing a model, critical comments can be communicated more easily.
  • Better 100% participation than 20%: Introverted participants are also heard, so the content of meetings and workshops is not dependent on a few extroverts or managers.
  • Understanding is encouraged: Through the presentation of the model and the subsequent exchange, one’s own views are questioned, and new perspectives and insights become possible.
  • Prioritized insights for rapid implementation: Ideas are structured and prioritized by building and describing models independently. Depending on the workshop’s goal, central tasks are worked on, influencing factors are highlighted, and complex solutions are developed from which prioritized work packages can be derived.

“Methaphors enhance understanding, create images, and remain in the minds of the audience.”
