FOSTERING CREATIVITY USING THE LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® METHOD
You can learn more in an hour of play than you can from a lifetime of conversation
Leaders, managers, and executives are often confronted with wicked problems – problems that are challenging to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and / or changing requirements. In addition, cultural aspects often play an important role in addressing these challenges. Traditional analytical problem-solving methods fail to address these challenges in an efficient and effective way. One reason for this is that the solution is not contained in the premises of the problem. They lack the necessary creativity. In addition, relying on 1-D tools, like speech or text, or 2-D tools, like graphics or photos, fails to address the multi-dimensional nature of the challenge at hand.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method is a creative process designed to enhance problem solving based on experimentation. It has been developed to support creativity in a business environment. It supports a hands-on, minds-on learning approach and produces a deeper, more meaningful, understanding of the challenge at hand which leads to superior solutions.
Through the four-step facilitated building, thinking, and communicating process, the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method supports participants solving business challenge, using models, metaphors, figures of speech, and narratives in a collaborative workshop setting. Participants develop solutions by building models using LEGO® bricks and mini figures in a flow of intense playing. Through building metaphors of their ideas, participants discover the root causes of the problem effectively and come up with adequate solutions. In addition, sharing the meaning of the models built with other participants, fosters creativity in a way that cannot be unleashed using other problem-solving techniques.
All our LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops are moderated by Dr Claude Diderich who is certified in designing and facilitating workshops with the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method by the Association of Master Trainers in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method
