LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®
The LEGO SERIOUS PLAY (LSP) method is a facilitated communication and problem solving technique used by organisations and teams to address complex issues.
LEGO bricks work as a catalyst to simplify complex concepts through the use of metaphors. In addition the method assures 100% participation because each person has the same time and opportunity to talk about his/her own ideas, each represented by a physical 3D model.
Workshop are tailored on different Client's needs and typical applications include :
- Define Identity, Vision & Strategy
- Engage and align teams
- Focus on underlying problems and identify solutions
- Simulate dynamics in complex business environments
- Brainstorm on new product development
- Study new business models
This methodology is based on the works by Kees van der Heijden, Adam Kahane and on the approach used by Royal Dutch Shell for several decades.
The objective of the exercise is to build resilience, i.e. the ability to actively model the system and manage possible scenarios by providing guidelines for readjusting the strategy in the face of the unexpected.
Participants explore together what can happen. They do not make predictions of what will or should happen, they focus on what is possible and plausible and the potential implications.

Routine interactions among people are naturally organised by microstructures.
They guide and control how groups work together. They shape
conversations and meetings.
Some of the best known are Liberating Structures by Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz but many others exist and can be combined to improve general management practices.
