Advanced. System model facilitation.
Systems thinking, made visible.
System models allow groups to explore situations dynamically. Once built, by physically moving one node of a system model, groups can see impacts and consequences elsewhere in the model. Like so much else in LEGO Serious Play, we have improved many of the original techniques and we frame systems model workshops as a way to make systems thinking visible.
In a world where evidently we are poor at understanding the consequences of actions, LEGO Serious Play Build Level 3: System modelling is a much needed method. We will be pleased to teach you how to plan, design and deliver a system level workshop.
We run Build Level 3: System model training online and face-to-face.
Advance to go
Get a systemic outlook. Help others see the bigger picture.
LEGO Serious Play is an incredibly powerful communication tool even before you get to Build Level 3: System Models. Then it's a niche technique for a subset of facilitators and we think it is best learnt after people already know how to facilitate Build Levels 1 and 2.
The difficult part of this is not facilitating the build of the model, but planning and designing a workshop to then use the system model to deliver real insight. But done well systems model workshops can be almost magical experiences for participants.
Learn to facilitate system level workshops
Face-to-face, we deliver this in one day for trained LEGO Serious Play facilitators. If you are a beginner you will learn systems facilitation skills on day three of a three day advanced training (days 1 and 2 being our two day certification)
Online we deliver this in one and a half days for trained LEGO Serious Play facilitators.

Systems facilitator training
We also run a one day advanced class for those who are already certified and have core LEGO Serious Play facilitation skills.
In both cases in the advanced skills training you’ll participate in a Build Level 3 workshop. You'll learn how to plan, prepare and follow up from a system-model workshop. You'll learn from case studies to see how it works in the real-world and we'll give you templates so you can design and facilitate your own Build Level 3 workshops.
After training join a learning-circle where you can keep on learning together.
Systems Work Online
Work at the cutting edge
In 2021 we designed, piloted and refined the online techniques for System Models. And we've cracked it! Watch a video of participant feedback below or read a detailed report from LSPConnect founder Guy Stephens, who kindly participated in one of our pilot classes. In his own words, "Can a Systems Build be done online effectively? For me, the answer is yes. Without a doubt."
To learn to design and facilitate Online LEGO Serious Play workshops join one of our new online classes.
Core skills + advanced training - 3 days
Already certified? Advanced training - 1 day
Graduates only Slack access
Helping you become a better facilitator
We have a Slack workspace only for graduates of our training and your fee includes lifetime access to our group. You might think of as a huge library of knowledge specifically for trained LEGO Serious Play facilitators. This is a golden goose of a resource where we post far more than just tips on LSP, but help you a better facilitator able to deliver gold standard workshops.
