BackgroundOrganizations, whether private or public, use the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology when they want to unlock the full potential of their employees – and to encourage everyone to participate, contribute and commit to the solution.
The Origins of The LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Methodology
The idea of the methodology originated in 1996 when two professors at IMD in Switzerland and The LEGO Group owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen were exploring alternative strategic planning tools and systems. They developed an understanding of the value of employees and the concept of an evolving, adaptive strategy that included using LEGO elements as three-dimensional models of business issues and challenges. The strategy was named LEGO SERIOUS PLAY.
