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 our hands and imagination take over. This unlock new insights, new opportunities – and new stories that participants share through their LEGO® models. You can read much more about the LSP method here »

Our Online Micro Certification is designed for you to learn and master the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method, so that you can run creative and impactful workshops both F2F and online for infinite purposes.

What do our participants say?

“During the training I really got some ideas, that I can use directly in the classroom. I said to myself quite a few times: ‘This is a great idea! I could use this.’ That was a benefit to me right away and some of the techniques and the exercises that we worked through will apply directly to the things that I want to teach.”

At the end of the session we will discuss how to develop, plan and run a tailormade application.

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.
