Aside from putting different bricks together, what exactly is Lego Serious Play?
Lego Serious Play (LSP) is a facilitation approach that is used by companies such as NASA, Oxford University, Google, Stanford Business School and others.
It’s a training methodology that can be used to effectively engage people, co-create strategies, explore different perspectives and drive teamwork. It focuses on “building” rather than talking about “concepts.” Participants don’t consume content. They create.
