In the picture above you see the members of our team, busy planning using Lego! To see pictures from other LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® sessions please click blog part 1 of 5.
For our Five Year Anniversary our team is taking turn writing this blog in Five parts, each blog will feature a case study to answer the most often asked question “what do you do with LEGO®”? At Timelined we estimate to have 20% of Canada’s practicing certified Serious Play Professionals, yes there are probably lots being certified everyday but according to statistics from Lego only about 14% of certified professionals practice this art and science everyday as facilitators.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Use #3 Speed Up Creative Thinking – We are re-branding so our name better reflects who we are and where we are going. We were recently lucky enough to have some of our clients come and participate in a Re-Branding session with us. Typically Re-branding Exercises can take days or even months to plan out. Now, let me clarify when I use the term Re-Branding I am talking about deciding on the following components:
1. Our Service Definitions – What are the services we provide (in our own words)?
2. Our Brand Persona – If our company was a person what characteristics would it have?
3. Our Brand Promise – What is our commitment to ourselves as we deliver products/ services?
4. Our Brand Expectations – What can our clients expect from us and call us out on, if we are not delivering according to expectations.
The above is an example of a specific re-branding session, but as you can see if you changed up the questions you could apply it to any innovative product/ service design where you need the team’s input and perceptions.
If you ask LEGO® the definition of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® it is as follows, “The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY ® methodology is an innovative process designed to enhance innovation and business performance. Based on research which shows that this kind of hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities, the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in the organization.
