Download PDFThe LEGO® Serious Play® (LSP) Method is a technique to facilitate reflection, communication, and problem solving that can be used by organizations, work teams, and really anyone in general. At the organizational level, LEGO® Serious Play® is useful to encourage involvement and participation in the decision-making process. It can be specifically helpful for complex context in which a decision requires commitment and adaptability from the affected parties.
LEGO® Serious Play® is organized into a central process and includes seven application techniques, all of which have a goal of “100-100” (100% of the people participate 100% of the time). Through this structure, the facilitator gradually increases the level of difficulty so that participants stay within the “flow” to achieve the objectives pursued. The process of building with LEGOs takes advantage of the human capacity to imagine, describe, and understand a situation, as well as to initiate change and improvements or to create something radically new. When people use their hands, a complex process develops that generates a strong emotional charge. “Thinking with your hands” unleashes ideas, inspiration, and imagination.
This workshop uses LEGO® Serious Play® techniques to help organizations understand and embrace changes that require their people to identify shared goals and action plans to not only overcome but promote the changes at hand.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Have more information about the strengths and weaknesses of the organization regarding the change.
- Have complete knowledge of the environment and the impact of change in the organization.
- Apply the knowledge obtained to design and carry out an action plan for the organizational changes pursued.
