By Donna Denio, Dieter Reuther
Released: March 2016
How can the power of play inspire your teams and help you achieve creative and powerful business solutions in a rapidly changing world? In this report, you’ll explore Lego Serious Play, a proven tool for boosting both individual and team productivity. It may sound frivolous, but playing with Lego bricks is an incredibly fun, creative, and valuable way to develop a collective plan of action—whether it’s for problem solving, strategy development, ideation, relationship building, or goal-setting.
Through several examples, authors Donna Denio and Dieter Reuther explain how Lego Serious Play can expand your leadership ability and deliver predictable and consistently productive results. This leadership model teaches, inspires, and promotes full participation of team members—including people who seldom speak up. Companies such as Google, Daimler Chrysler, NASA, Tupperware, and Microsoft have all used this method.
Pick up a copy of this report, and discover how Lego Serious Play can help you and your team step off the treadmill and look at the big picture, together.

Thanks. Just read it. I have to say, I love Lego as much as the next man, but I think this is bullshit
"The Lego Serious Play workshop design had people sit together who normally didn’t work together, so each table contained one or two people from each of the company’s six offices. Through a series of building challenges, each table-based team had to collaboratively design a way to get more work. Every‐one built a nightmare client, then they built dream clients, then bar‐riers to connecting with more dream clients. One team created a landscape with two minifigs collaboratively pushing a wheelbarrow to the reservoir of gold between the mountains. Blocking the way to the reservoir was a chicken on a hinge. Their thinking was: we will get more clients if we stop being “chickens” (being afraid of picking up the phone and calling people they don’t know). And at that point, the storyteller snapped his thumb and forefinger against the chicken on a hinge and it “flew” off the model. The flying chicken became an icon of cultural transformation"
Really? "The flying chicken became an icon of cultural transformation"? WTF?
By the way, there's a great video about Lego's London HQ here:
But it's about Legos. No way it can be bad :)
