I am 5 years oldExactly 5 years ago today the community was born!

6-10 December 2009 we attended a Lego Serious Play certification training with master trainers Per Kristiansen and Jacquie Lloyd Smith. It was a great and dynamic group of people from around the globe.

While the discussions about learning the tricks of the trade were great fun, during the penultimate day we received a gloomy status update from LEGO. We were told that as LEGO was pulling the plug from Lego Serious Play licensed partner network and trying to rethink the Open Source business model.

Helle Borup Friberg and Steen Forum of LEGO were both doubtful about what would follow next. As we were the last group of facilitators that was directly trained under the auspices of LEGO watchful eye then it looked as if LEGO was sharing with us their fears on how the changes will materialize. Most frequent answer to most of our questions was simply: “We don’t know … yet!”

They merely suggested that it was in LEGO best interest to see also LEGO SERIOUS PLAY turn into a user-based community like the other communities surrounding LEGO: Lego Education, LUGNET Lego User Groups, Adult Fans of Lego, Lego Mindstorms communities, First Lego League competition groups and others.

After the gloomy evening we convened the next morning with our group and I suggested: “What a great opportunity! Let us try to get in touch with all those people who had been certified during the previous years and try to see if we could gather them into a single virtual community.” domain registrationFollowing a brief brainstorming session we came up with its trademark domain name for Serious Play professionals – “”. And so it started. The domain name was registered the next day and what followed has been a great journey. By now the community is 5 years old – hence it has entered the age of an inquisitive toddler.

Congratulations and many thanks to all our community members – with your eager participation we have been able to come so far!

Nice article on LEGO Research in schools with children

LEGO bricks build better mathematicians

27 November 2014

Dr Miles Richardson, Head of Psychology, University of Derby

Lego-6363A study carried out by the University of Derby has found that LEGO plays a vital role in the development of maths skills in children.

The study ‘Children’s construction performance and math: controlling task complexity and predicting mathematics performance’ was conducted to examine the relationships between spatial and mathematical abilities in children.

A student from the University of Derby worked with 96 children aged seven to fourteen, from Etwall Primary School, Granville Community School and John of Rolleston Primary School. The study revealed that there is a link between LEGO building skills and mathematics performance.

Dr Miles Richardson, Head of Psychology, worked with the student to conduct the study.

He added: “This is interesting as LEGO construction skills were found to be a unique predictor of maths performance, independent of factors we already know about.”

Co-author, Dr Thomas Hunt noted “Overall those who performed best on the LEGO task had a higher maths SAT score. In particular, in year six, the best performing pupils on the LEGO task scored a whole maths SAT level higher”.

Dr Richardson continued: “The study also provides a method to control and quantify the difficulty of LEGO tasks across childhood and adolescence. This provides the possibility of developing LEGO based kits to improve the mathematical ability of children.

“We hope the findings will encourage the development of play-based ways of engaging children to develop skills essential for maths.”

The LEGO® – Retrospective

Slightly different from “classic” LEGO SERIOUS PLAY methodology, Dominic Krimmer (Twitter@dkrimmer84) has written an interesting case study about the combination of LEGO and Scrum tools. Here is his blog post “The LEGO Retrospective

LEGO Retrospective by Dominic Krimmer
LEGO Retrospective by Dominic Krimmer

The LEGO® – Retrospective is a quite nice method I tried out with a team in my current company. The reason why this exercise is so exciting is the fact that team members are joining a totally new creative space where they can try out to express their thoughts on an abstract layer. In this post I’d like to share some experiences about this improvised retrospective.

Time needed:
preparation: 10 minutes
retrospective: 60-90 minutes

What you can expect:

The LEGO® – Retrospective helps teams to dive into another kind of space where the rules of ordinary life are temporarily suspended and replaced with the rules of this game. As almost everybody played with LEGO® in his childhood you can expect a high engagement as adults might love to remember the good old creative time :-)

Object of play the LEGO® – Retrospective:

Most of us are familiar with LEGO® – one of the best known brand toys. This game gives team members an opportunity to express their views on an abstract way. It’s valuable because you are able to create the conditions that will allow unexpected and surprising solutions to emerge.
