There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns. —Edward de Bono, Author of Six Thinking Hats

Facilitating group meetings for better business outcomes

I don't believe a workshop should have a minimum size of participants or time. A simple meeting can be structured to be much better simply by following the Six Thinking Hats method.

Other more complex problems may need more defined and detailed processes like Design Thinking, Design Sprints or even big emersive methods like Capgemini's Accelerated Solutions Environments.

At the end of the day, workshops is a way, maybe the best way, to be effective and efficient while also being explorative and creative.

LEGO® Serious Play®

LEGO® Serious Play® is my favourite workshop methodology as I find it more effective, more efficient and simply more fun than other methodologies.

LEGO® Serious Play® breaks the cycle of having the classic meeting scenario where a few people talk for most of the time, while the rest feel they are not contributing and committed to what is supposedly agreed.

But more than that, LEGO® Serious Play® aims to unlock knowledge in the subconscious mind of participants by leveraging the very behaviour that makes us fiddle, doodle and otherwise keep our hands busy.

The aim of using LEGO® Serious Play® is to drive real time strategy by having 100% of participants actively engaged 100% of the time.

Examples of where LEGO® Serious Play® can be applied to get value:
