LEGO Serious Play

lego serious play corporate teambuilding team building

Brickworkz visited McKesson Medical Surgical to facilitate a LEGO-designed approach to team building called LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® - an innovative, experiential process designed to enhance innovation and business performance. That's a lot of words for "Thinking with your hands," but it sums up the creative process pretty well!

Based on research that shows that this kind of hands-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in your organization.

Someone glancing through a window at a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® session might think it looks like fun and games. When you've experienced it for yourself, you’ll know nothing could be farther from the truth - LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is serious business!

McKesson

Brickworkz visited a very creative group of Developers at McKesson Medical Surgical for a fun team building event. In timed sessions, the Development team built models that illustrated various scenarios posed to them. The requirements were that they used only the LEGO elements they were provided, and that everyone got a voice in sharing their story.

Below are some of their responses to one of the challenges: Tell us a story and build a model that describes your work environment. We had some really creative models and stories describing this scenario in particular.

Great work, everybody!

A conventional LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® session is a full day of activities, and we go much deeper into systems and team interactivity. In our limited time, we presented a sampling of the activities. These too get built upon.

I was most impressed with the creativity that the Development team brought to the Brickworkz session. Everyone was heard, and every idea was accepted and considered. Most models were brilliant metaphors for the provided scenarios. All were clever, and some had everybody laughing!

Thank you for the opportunity to serve! If you know someone who might want to experience LEGO team building with Brickworkz, please let me know.
