Some things are very difficult to explain. And some people are more articulate or emotionally intelligent than others. This is why so many important topics are never properly explored within businesses. The standard ways of constructing explanations, stories and perspectives just don’t work for everyone.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® was invented by LEGO to help its own people build what they were trying to say.
The techniques are very simple to learn – and everyone is comfortable building LEGO® models – but the results can be profound.
Teams of people take part in facilitated workshops. First they build. Then, each person tells the story of their model. Sometimes, they go on to combine their models so that they can display a collective, shared picture.
With SERIOUS PLAY® you can explore a topic – for example, “What does it feel like when we have the perfect work/life balance?”.
Or we can use SERIOUS PLAY® to create a vision, mission or purpose – with colleagues doing the work rather than consultants.

Transform insight and awareness into commitment and shared goals.
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 organization.
