What is LEGO Serious Play?

LSP is a moderated and scientifically based process for a more creative, communicative and conflict-free collaboration between groups and teams. You could also say: "Thinking with your hands". LSP was developed by the renowned Swiss IMD (International Institute for Management Development) based on the findings of learning and brain research, psychology and organizational development.

Proven applications include:
• Strategy development & Vision
• Change Management
• Making events more active
• Developing teams & culture
• Innovation & prototyping

What will you learn in this workshop?

In this interactive workshop, which is conducted in English, you can try out the method yourself. You will also learn for which areas of application LEGO Serious Play is suitable. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to solve simple tasks in groups yourself with this method. 

What do alumni say about this workshop?

The participants of the LEGO Serious Play Workshop in November 2019 were enthusiastic throughout. Here are two statements:

“The Lego Serious Play Workshop was the perfect opportunity for me to get to know the methodology and the underlying concepts. Conclusion: super suitable for many questions as a supplement or replacement of existing workshop methods. We had a mixture of "hands-on" workshop modules and reflection on the different modules and techniques. The "blueprint" was particularly important in order to conduct a short workshop. So Eric not only aroused our enthusiasm, he also helped us to continue on our own. Thank you very much and definitely highly recommended! ”

“Thanks again for organizing this exciting and entertaining workshop. My take-away is the playful and creative approach and the fact that LSP can be used for almost all challenges. I will put what I have learned into practice immediately, together with my team! ”
