LEGO® Serious Play® — For Managers.
Solve Your Business Challenges Playfully & with Fun!

Condensed version of my LSP presentation for managers & C-level.

LEGO® Serious Play® is a structured, facilitated method. It answers questions rephrasing the business topics. The models built and their stories shared by the builders are the answers. It is a playful and still serious way to create new insights and to develop innovative ideas.
