Certified Facilitator in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology
Online Micro Certification in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology
We offer you an excellent concept and tool to run creative and impactful workshops both F2F and online.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) method offers a unique way of getting processes from the head through the hands and out on the table. How? By giving everyone a key question and letting them answer it through a LEGO® model.
When we focus on building, the interaction between the brain and hands is activated, and hands and imagination take over. This opens for new insights, new opportunities – and new stories that participants share through their LEGO models. You can read much more about the LSP method here »

1: Introduction & warm up
Participants are given reassurance in knowing why play works in a working context, the core elements and the 5 simple steps. We do a few exercises to warm up hands, brains and stories to debunk any concerns about having to be a master builder and to get in flow from the start.
2. Model separately and put together
We set up a task to uncover the substance of the subject, e.g. the strategy, the team, the ability to innovate, etc. from different orientations – each participant builds their models, tells about them and then the group brings them together in shared models based on the instructions.
3: Ecosystem and factors
The ecosystem – e.g. the team, the company, the project, the strategy or the ability to innovate – is created out of the shared models. To see what affects systems and how, participants build both internal and external factors, e.g. stakeholders, team dynamics, trends or other actors.
4: Correlations in the ecosystem
The factors are placed and connected to each other and to the parts of the shared models that they directly affect, so that all the models shape an ecosystem that embraces complexity internally and externally.
5. Condense conclusions & future actions
We identify conclusions, principles and actions based on the knowledge we have about the ecosystem right now.
