About the Workshop: The LEGO® Serious Play® (LSP) methodology is a radical, experiential process designed to help business teams finish projects faster — with less friction, more fun. Already well known in Europe, Asia and Mexico, GABC introduced LSP to members in 2012 and it’s now back by popular demand. Typical workshops last 1-2 days but this session offered through GABC is an introduction lasting just 2 hours to get the basics and gain a solid understanding of LSP’s potential for your own organization. We’ll focus on solving a real-life business problem related to multi-cultural teams. We’ll teach the art of reaching a collaborative decision among team members of different cultures, a “leaning forward” approach where everybody contributes.
Why Legos? The LEGO® Serious Play® methodology was developed by the Lego® Company when it had to redefine its own strategy development in the mid 90s and was not able to achieve successful outcomes using traditional tools and methodologies. Through research and years of refinement they developed LSP as a methodology to solve problems and improve decision-making. Yes, we actually use Lego® bricks! They work as a catalyst, and when used for building metaphors, they trigger surprising result.
