I thought it was a good task that we workers got to practice working together on something simple, yet complex; and our managers was able to see, almost immediately, how effective their directions were (or weren't).
I still remember this as being a fun part of the class (the remainder of which I'm sure I've completely forgotten!)
There are a lot of applications for LEGO as team building events that can be customized to the business or setting that is needed. The great thing about LEGO is that it reminds everyone of their child hoods so even if they haven't played with bricks since they were kids, they end up having fun.
"LEGO SERIOUS PLAY builds on a REAL TIME process, which begins with the "right now". It draws in relevant parts of the past and integrates this with the future hopes, aspirations and fears of everyone in the room. It is brought to the process to find out what can and should be done today. Being better at "now" results in being better prepared for challenges and opportunities in the future."
.... blah blah waffle waffle, I still dont know what it actually _is_!
This is quite interesting though ..
"As of May 1st 2010 LEGO has decided to allow everyone - including facilitators outside of our previous partner network - to use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®."
"You can now donwload an Open Source document outlining the basic guiding principles of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® and its philosophy....... The Open Source document aims to empower and inspire people to become familliar with the LSP method as well as open up the experience to people who previously couldnt be a part of it.
By sharing the method of LSP we hope it will illustrate the "power of thinking through your fingers" enabling individuals to unleash insight, inspiration and imagination, in a practical and direct way. The common language - the bricks - makes everyone equal and allows all opinions and aspects to be heard. The bricks allow people to communicate thoughts and ideas in place of traditional communication methods that can be too restrictive."
This sounds like something we should all be aware of!
