LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is an innovative tool to help generate ideas. This workshop is designed for anyone who needs some guidance on developing an idea or taking an existing idea to the next level. The four-phase LEGO® Serious Play® methodology will guide participants in a state of flow through a series of structured steps to think, to build, to tell a story, and to reflect and refine, and to develop a deeper understanding on the issue at hand.


Creativity is not an accident. It could happen in a systematic process. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is a powerful tool to help solve problem, explore ideas and achieve objectives. The process of building bricks and making something prompts the brain to work in a different way, unlocking new perspectives.  LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is like making 3D prints of your own thoughts. 

Workshop Description

  • LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology helps generate ideas. The bricks create a playful mindset. It is a systematic method that enables people to explore ideas, solve problems and achieve objectives.
  • Ideation relies on associative thinking.  The structured LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology will guide participants to think, build and reflect so as to develop a deeper understanding on the issue at hand. 
  • LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology enables three modes of communication: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic.  The models enable enhanced expression, deeper listening and better memory.
