Just now I attended an introduction workshop to LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® [web] in the context of agile. The purpose of this method is to use hands-on, minds-on creative thinking to let people build metaphors with LEGO bricks. That way it enables possibilities in their ideas and communication.
“You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than you can from a lifetime of conversation.” – Plato
Trust me when I say there are numerous workshops using LEGO out there. This is the only method which LEGO has endorsed. My excitement was high as the great @Martin van Dijken was one of the facilitators. 🙂 I find it valuable and so far think it matches my coaching style. The next step is deciding if I want to become a certified facilitator.

I totally recommend becoming a facilitator – I am not sure there is a certification 😉
The 3 day training where you get the theory behind and get to run things yourself is so awesome 🙂

Where there is money to be made, there is a certification, ha ha ha ha… http://www.lego.com/en-us/seriousplay/facilitator
Valid point that it might not be necessary to become certified to grasp the concepts and use them myself!

I like the training by Strategic Play, because you get to know the theory AND to facilitate yourself 🙂
Some trainings are just one-way communication 🙂
