LEGO Education

From three hours to three days depending on the objective, the workshops always start with the alignment of the participants' skills: regardless of the initial skills, at the end of the first sequence everyone knows how to build, use metaphors and tell a story with LEGO bricks.

Then the workshop establishes a rhythmic dynamic to move the group from individual work towards collective construction. From the models of each participant, it is possible to build a system of representation of the problem and to conduct a shared reflection. This makes it possible to keep everyone's key ideas at the heart of the synergy, for greater commitment to the collective process. 

Depending on the duration of the workshop, it is also possible to manipulate the different parts of the system to simulate scenarios and test strategies, in order to analyse their impact, draw conclusions and identify desirable action plans.  This process reduces the risk of errors during implementation in reality.

It is also a powerful tool for training in decision-making in uncertain and ambiguous contexts.



Fields of application of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®

The LSP method has proven to be very effective in dealing with:

  • Problems of individual and team identity
  • Creative reflections on a key theme (including in large groups)
  • Product or service innovation problems in UX perspective
  • Problems in building a shared vision of a project or mission
  • Problems with organizational strategy in its ecosystem (influencers, external agents, stakeholders, etc.)


LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitators

In the LSP method, LEGO bricks are powerful tools that facilitate the emergence of knowledge, speaking out and collaboration. It is first of all a question of opening up to others and then defending and negotiating your point of view, until you reach an agreement to achieve a shared construction. The human being and the relationship are at the heart of the process, provided that we know how to manage its dynamics. In order to ensure a successful workshop it is important to trust professional facilitators who guarantee:

  • Mastery of the tool and method
  • The construction of a tailor-made workshop 
  • Supporting individuals
  • Management of group dynamics


The LSP method as a lever for soft skills and involvement in action

The LSP method uses bricks as facilitators of 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking and applied creativity. The bricks are also a tool for involvement in the action.

In more detail, the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method allows more:

  • Creativity: Through a significant number of connections between hands and brain, when building, people stimulate their intuitive and emotional skills in addition to their logical and verbal abilities, which enriches the emergence of conscious and unconscious knowledge and creativity.
  • Communication: LEGO bricks are a fun starting point for self-expression and ideas. By relying on the built model, speech becomes easier, because it begins with its description. However, it remains focused, because any presentation must be based on the model, without excessive conceptualization or divagation.
  • Collaboration: Telling the group about your model facilitates mutual understanding. When speaking in public, attention is focused on the construction, rather than the person, which makes the experience more pleasant. All thinking is directed at the model, which avoids the risk of reaching the person. More confident, people interact without any obstacles and therefore more effectively.
  • Involvement: Starting from individual models to build a collective model allows inclusion from everyone's point of view, which creates a sense of belonging to the collective vision and a lasting commitment to its realization.
