Agile Strategy with Lego® Serious Play®

We live in a crazy world. Crazy pace. Crazy change. And…well, crazy people. Yes, that’s you. That’s me. We are all trying to work out how to do something meaningful while being confronted by an endless smorgasbord of options, technologies and challenges. So where do we go? What is truly meaningful? Where is due north? How do we create order in this sea of chaos? How do we guide our focus and our teams in the right direction? These are big questions with no easy answers.

Enter agile, stage left. Yes, it’s a buzzword, it truly is. Yet it’s also a fantastic descriptor of what it means to ride the wave of change we face and seize the incredible opportunities we have to make a real difference. Agility describes our ability to have strength and fitness to make magic in tumultuous times. And to have fun doing so. An agile strategy is the key to thinking big and executing our magic impeccably.

Agile Strategy is video-rich and experiential. Video resources guide you through the concepts you need. Video-facilitated Lego® Serious Play®, combined with journalling, are used to unpack every facet of your one-page strategic plan. As the pieces are developed, they are slotted into the strategic plan template. At the end of the course, you will have a completed strategy that you can share with your team in a variety of ways.

The Scaling Up methodology, developed by Verne Harnish and the team at Gazelles, is the scaffolding for the strategic development process. It is an excellent agile strategy method.

Lego® Kit
Most people, and hopefully this is you, have a box of Lego® somewhere. Your kid's Lego® stored away in the attic or basement, or in your kid's room. Or your childhood Lego® kept for no reason other than it brought you years of fun. If this is the case, use what you have. Dust off the old storage boxes and re-acquaint yourself with those old bricks or ask your kid if you could use their Lego® for a little while.

If you are looking for any excuse to buy new Lego®, then here's two suggestions: One...go down to your local toy store and purchase a new kit. A great kit is the Lego® Classic Creative Box (484 pieces). You can get smaller options. Tap or click to access:
