About the Session

LSP – a quick insight into the Lego Serious Play methodology

or How to explain to my colleagues why I play Lego at work now.

Lego Serious Play is not a recent invention – but it is currently being rediscovered. As a playful way to get the creative process going, it can be used as a basis for several types of workshops. By building your thoughts, expectations and ideas, they become tangible and thus so much easier to understand.

Whether you want to support a team in their setup or challenge a strategy in your company – Lego Serious Play makes the vision tangible.

And then there is the moment when you tell your colleagues you will be playing with Lego bricks today, during work – as part of your work. ;)

What to expect?

A comprehensive summary of what LSP is, where it comes from and what to use it for - History, Theory, Methodology.
The session will be hands-on, so be prepared to use some bricks.

Requirements

None – just show up, we've got the Lego!

Experience Level

A session for everybody making creative decisions.

Our recommendation:

Please head to your breakout session room 10 minutes ahead of the start time to keep everything on schedule and make sure you get a seat, as space is limited in each room except the main stage. Thank you!
