We’ve found that Lego® Serious Play® can be an amazingly useful tool tackling tough organization problems like Leadership Development, Organizational Design, Change Management, Strategy Design, and Strategic Planning.
We’ve decided to embed some serious large-scale Lego® Serious Play® action into the very tapestry of the SDI Miami conference experience. This will not be a separate workshop that only a few can attend. Instead, we’re hoping to provoke change and learning by making it a central part of the conference experience including attendees, speakers, facilitators, and staff in an epic exploration of systems and complexity thinking.
Background: Strategy Play rooted in Theory
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® was developed at Swiss-based Imagination Lab and relied on numerous theoretical works on Strategy Process (Mintzberg), Theory of Flow (Csikszentmihalyi), Change Management (Lewin, Schon, Argyris), complex adaptive systems (Holland), approaches on imagination and creativity (Kearney), as well as Strategy-as-Practice (Schön, Mintzberg).
