What is LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®?

If you ask different people what LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is you might well get different answers. The reason? Because it's many things in the same package.


LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Method

It is a systematic method that enables people to use LEGO® bricks to solve problems, explore ideas and achieve objectives.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Process

It is a structured process where participants proceed through a series of steps to think, build, tell a story, reflect and refine, to develop a shared understanding on the issue at hand.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Communication tool or language

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® enables three modes of communication: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. The models enable enhanced expression, deeper listening and better memory.

Shared model building allow teams to understand each others interpretation and create deeper shared meaning of key ideas.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Service

It is a service provided by trained facilitators, trainers or coaches who use LEGO® bricks hand in hand with other material tools to help individuals or teams achieve objectives and create outcomes.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Framework

As a framework or philosophy LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a participatory mode of leadership that is democratic, all-inclusive, playful, goal-driven and constructive.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Product line

It is also patented and trademarked product line of LEGO® corporation. LEGO® and its subsidiary Executive Discovery patented LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® in early 2001 as “a program, method and materials for enhancing creative thinking, communication, decision-making and strategic planning.” (U.S. Patent no. 20020103774-A1)

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a Meeting tool

While some applications might need a five day LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop we also have witnessed its power to activate people in small and large groups, in brief interventions of just 10 minutes to workshop over several days.
