In 2010 the LEGO Company made the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY idea commonly available through open source Creative Commons License. This has led to an increased interest in the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method.
The LEGOÂ® SERIOUS PLAYÂ® Method is a facilitated process, and the results and impact are directly tied to the quality of the workshop design and the facilitation. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY delivers exceptional value, when the process is designed and delivered by a well trained facilitator who knows how to prepare well, manage the process and follow up the final outcomes.
Given that the LEGO Serious Play method is fully open source anybody can facilitate and train others. We therefore recommend you to check the training opportunities in LEGO Serious Play methodology and find the best provider among the global training providers.
