I många fall när vi utforskar användningen av lekfulla metoder i affärssammanhang tar vi till detta initiativ när traditionella metoder och mönster inte ger den insikt och tänkande vi behöver. Unika utmaningar förtjänar unika lösningar. Hur lekfulla tekniker kan stödja en utmaning är ofta en diskussion mellan oss som facilitatorer och våra kunder, och vi utformar alltid sessioner med den unika utmaningen i åtanke, eller anpassar våra paketerade tjänster för att möta behovet på bästa möjliga sätt.

För att på bästa sätt kunna tillgodose dina behov erbjuder vi en kostnadsfri konsultation. Kontakta oss

Vi arrangerar många sessioner och vid varje session lär vi oss nya saker och anpassar vårt sätt att arbeta. Vi letar också efter likheter i sessioner som vi kör för att möta olika utmaningar, och när vi väl hittar mönster som liknar varandra, och utmaningar av liknande karaktär, ser vi till att vi paketerar dessa till större nytta för alla våra kunder. Dessa paketerade tjänster kan utforskas nedan, som exempel på de typer av engagemang vi har arbetat med tidigare.

  • it is important to reach decisions which everyone commits to
  • everyone in the group has an interest or stake in what is on the agenda
  • you want to increase team understanding and at the same time avoid frustration
  • you want to use the time efficiently
  • there are no obvious answers
  • you would like to gain new learning, insights and new ways of thinking

SEPARATE PAGE FOR LSP OPEN SOURCE RESOURCES

As of May 1st 2010 LEGO has decided to allow everyone to freely use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology. Thanks LEGO!

Feel Free to Use, Develop and Pass it on!

Who and how is entitled to use, train, develop with LEGO® Serious Play® methodology? Very simple! Anybody is entitled to – provided that they follow the LEGO Serious Play Open-source guideline (download it below).

LEGO Serious Play Open-source document p. 4 states: “LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® has been made available by the LEGO Group under a Creative Commons licence ‘Attribution Share Alike’: see https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/“.

This license means that you are free to:

  • Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
  • Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially.
  • The licensor (LEGO) cannot revoke these freedoms as long as you follow the license terms.

You need to do this under the following terms:

  • Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
  • ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.
  • No additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the license permits.

It is as simple as: “1) You use, 2) you develop, 3) you pass it on to anybody else to use under the same terms.“

How do you give credit to LEGO Corporation?

Anybody can do what they like with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® as long as they refer to original LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Open-source document and give exactly the same credit for the next developers. If you are in doubt how to best formulate it, you may just use the sentence:

“This approach/application/technique/model/roadmap/case builds on LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Open-source guideline made available by the LEGO® Group under a Creative Commons licence. Feel free to share and use under the same licence and enjoy playing seriously with bricks!” 🙂

 

When you do that it is important to make a distinction to what is in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Open Source Guide and what are proprietary materials. E.g. if somebody has created something, which has their original ideas and that they do not allow others to use. If you are in doubt then get in touch with the authors and make sure that you will not violate their rights nor trust.

What is included in LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Open Source Document?

The core methodology of LSP has been transcribed and made public for people and facilitators looking to benefit from utilising this method. The Open Source document aims to empower and inspire people to become familliar with the LSP method as well as open up the experience to people who previously couldn’t be a part of it.

By sharing the method of LSP, LEGO hopes to will illustrate the “power of thinking through your fingers” enabling individuals to unleash insight, inspiration and imagination, in a practical and direct way. The common language – the bricks – makes everyone equal and allows all opinions and aspects to be heard. The bricks allow people to communicate thoughts and ideas in place of traditional communication methods that can be too restrictive.

Since 20 years, the LEGO® GROUP has supported the rigorous and careful development of three types of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® resources:

  • The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® basic principles and philosophy, upon which everything else is built;
  • The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® materials – sets of specially selected LEGO bricks and pieces;
  • The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® ‘applications’ – detailed roadmaps of different workshops that make use of the principles, the philosophy and the materials;

In the past all three of these were only available to trained and certified consultants. From June 2010 however, the first two of these have been made ‘open source’. This document outlines the basic principles and philosophy, and the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® boxes (large sets of LEGO bricks and pieces) can be found here: purchase bricks.

The document does not include detailed applications, because LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is entering a new phase. New applications will be developed by the international community of users, and may be shared online. In this new phase welcome creative uses of the tools, and innovation in the community.

Separate Page – Articles, Publications, & Probono commitments

Our ambition, in line with the Creative commons idea under witch most of the methods we hold dear are published, is to give back from what we learn in our line of work to benefit of the greater good and the community.

This we do by publishing articles and papers, speaking at events and fairs, offer open sessions to spread word of our methods and supporting our local non-profit community with free services.

Below are some examples of such activities.

Vår ambition, i linje med Creative Commons-idén, under vilken de flesta av de metoder vi uppskattar är publicerade, är att ge tillbaka från det vi lärt oss i vårt arbete för att ge nytta till det större bästa och samhället.

Detta gör vi genom att publicera artiklar och dokumentation, tala vid evenemang och mässor, erbjuda öppna sessioner för att sprida budskapet om våra metoder och stödja våra lokala ideella gemenskap med gratistjänster.

Nedan följer några exempel på sådana aktiviteter. (skrivna på engelska)

Giving back to the greater community of Playfullness supporters is at the core of our support in the beliefe that we can create better businesses through play.

Stadsmissionen Skåne

Nu är det jul – igen. Allt fler familjer har svårt att få pengarna att räcka till det nödvändigaste. När julen kommer blir fattigdomen särskilt tydlig. Ingen förälder borde behöva välja mellan att köpa julklappar till sitt barn och att kunna sätta mat på bordet.

I år väljer vi därför att ge vi bort julen som julklapp, genom att bidra till Skåne Stadsmissions arbete för människor som lever i utsatthet i Skåne. Vi vill helt enkelt göra julen bättre, för alla.

Pengarna går exempelvis till frukostar för människor som lever i hemlöshet, julfirande för människor som vill uppleva en jul i gemenskap eller matkassar med det allra nödvändigaste för barnfamiljer som lever i fattigdom.

Creations For Charity

This year we stumbled across Creations for charity, a non profit where masterbuilders of lego donate creations for others to bid on, and where all the proceedings go towards supplying those in need with a playful experience.

“Creations for Charity is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that hosts an annual fundraising event where builders from all over the world donate custom LEGO creations that are sold in our store from October 15th to November 30th. The proceeds are used to buy new LEGO sets for underprivileged children around the world during the holidays.” – www.creationsforcharity.org

Make sure you secure the bespoke LEGO model of your choice in this years sale, or why not support by  donating on this Paypal page, no strings attached. Hopefully this will lead to some great times for the children during the holiday season. And also will give them the chance to experience the power of play.

Passion for Projects is the biggest Nordic conference for Professionells in the Project Management trade, hoasted by the Swedish Chapter of the Project Management Institute

As a long standing Project Managment Professional PMP certified Facilitator of the Project Managment Institute, giving back to the wider community on these community events is a great honor. We have been asked back several times to support the Swedish Chapter events with some sessions of Hard Fun, in exploring how the Power of Play can be used to rune better projects.

PfP2019 – LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® – A POWERFUL FACILITATION TOOL

2019 we where invited to host a set of interactive sessions (as the only speaker that year to host multiple sessions) to explore how PMI could reach more members and drive more engagment in its member base. The session gave participants an oppertunity to experience a couple of LSP Applicaiton techniques while exploring the question at hand. The sessions where very apprechiated, and built a lot of lasting relations.

PMI Samhällsbyggnadsdagar 2019- LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® – Vad är hållbar samhällsbyggnad

Every year the PMI Sweden Chapter hosts a day of sessions exploring sustainable development of society.
2019 the sessions where hosted in Malmö and as a Partner to ProgressLEAD, Addends supported the event with an interactive session to align the view on the subject.

In a reality where people are getting increasingly informed and connected through various methods, it’s important to find an innovative way of communicating. The need to re-visit how the dialogue with consumer and supplier is lead within and by companies is important and it’s time for a new method in the field. Introducing dialoguing with consumers through LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®*.

Because of the very complex and over stimulated context in which we live, people are changing their relationships with time, their capacity to keep focus and their attention overall. With this in mind, a new way of leading change management and communication within and by companies is an essential part of development.

The LSP approach allows consumers to get out of their cognitive thinking and to access the unconscious parts of their minds through playfulness and storytelling. Through this, the answers to specific questions have a stronger link to emotions associated with product usage and are less rationalized. Another benefit is the individual sharing of answers by all the participants. The beauty of this method is that everyone has the same opportunity to explain their thoughts and ideas in a fun and safe environment.

This is the assumption we started from when we initiated the “LSP Focus Groups” project. We had already piloted this approach on an individual level, and thanks to last year’s conference in Billund, the birthplace of LEGO, we have got the chance to gather a small group of LSP facilitators from different parts of Europe and from different starting points, businesses and countries to lead workshops and change management at different companies.

Article written for the LSP Connect Magazine – Full magazine downloadable at: https://www.lspconnect.events/magazine

When I first heard about and encountered the 5 Bold Steps Vision Canvas it really triggered something, and I realised this could be used together with the LEGO® Serious Play® method.

The canvas is described as follows: “The 5 Bold steps vision® canvas (created by David Sibbet, of the Grove International) provides a guide to create a vision and strategy for your business or team by using the defined steps and model these onto a canvas to clearly visualize the needed steps, actions, stakeholders etc. to reach the goals.

So how could this be adapted to work with LSP and how would a session setup look like?
Firstly, it is a canvas, and this can easily be represented on the sharing table using plates:


Sharing table setup with plates


5 Bold Steps Vision Canvas

Secondly, it has clear areas that is easily adapted into workshop steps.

As usual starting with skills building to level the playing field, but after that pose the questions related to each of the areas described on the canvas.

  1. Build the Vision statement / Process / Team
  2. Build the Themes / Resources Supporting 1
  3. Build the Stakeholders / dependencies impacting 1
  4. Build the Operations/roles/strengths supporting 1
  5. Build the Threats/Challenges towards 1
  6. Build the Steps/Opportunities to reach 1
  7. Build the Foundations needed to reach 1

For each of the areas I used individual models and then moved to the sharing table for placement and discussions. And at the sharing table make sure to use the space as an indicator for how each model is impacting each other or related area. This will enable you to use all AT’s by building agents, making connections, and creating a landscape.

Each of the questions posed for the team to build will be focused on the vision. And will depend on the setup and expectations. A few examples would be:

If the vision is a process, I would ask the team to build “what are the resources need for the process?” these could be people, tools etc, and add these into step 2 Themes

if the vision is more a goal or actual mission then step 5 – Challenges would be “build agents that challenges the goal” here it would be more open with everything from the market to people to mindsets.

And as usual each workshop is unique and therefor can be adapted. When I did the first session, I added Connections to the table as well, to really highlight how any agents are connected to the themes previously created.


Making Connections between agents and themes

At the end of the session the team will have a complete canvas based on both the Canvas setup as well as the LSP methodology. For this session, the main goal was to identify the steps / actions needed to reach the vision, and at the end of the day the team had a common understanding and a clear prioritized action list that could be acted upon the next day.


Finished Canvas

Key aspects are as usual to ensure that you and the customer are aligned on the session goal.

Some more specific considerations:

  • Should the Vision be created beforehand, and you focus on the areas to reach the vision?
  • Given the amount of time spent around the sharing table its important, as facilitator, to keep track of the discussions.
  • Use the canvas as a palette and change according to the customer’s needs.
  • Expectations on reporting.

For the first session we spent about 6 hours, but this will of course depend on complexity and size of group. The whole session can be done with only individual and sharing models, or it can be built to use all application techniques.

For the first session I used individual starter kits, combined with both landscaping and connection kits. As well as some community bricks (old starter kits put in a pile) just to ensure that each participant was able to build the models, which can be quite a few.


Room setup

Based on feedback and observations during the session only minor changes was needed to the template and given that each session will be tailored to each customer anyway, they will all be different.

This session has been run with both management, investigating how to restart in the new normal world we are facing, as well as with a team needing help to define and examine new ways-of-working.

Looking forward to using and adapting this setup in further workshops as I can really see the potential in the canvas and its adaptability.
