 Chicago Advanced Certification in "Playing with Strategy" LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods
Sep

to Sep 20

Chicago Advanced Certification in "Playing with Strategy" LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods

Join us for LSP Advanced Certification training for strategy makers. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology system is the perfect tool for preparing for the unexpected.

_MG_9090.jpg

Too often, strategic planning is a misplaced word that really only means work planning. You need to see this powerful tool in action if:

  • your organization or business clients are finding themselves unprepared and unsure of what to do next;

  • your organization or clients keep solving the wrong problems;

  • leaders discover that key individuals are confused and misaligned when it comes to making important decisions;

  • Tactics deployed lack imagination and creative problem solving;

  • People are not spontaneous and lack the ability to ‘think on their feet”.

You will build on your previous LSP knowledge to create 3D models that illustrate the complex environments where entities like organizations, boards, communities, and other interconnected systems function. See how these play out in real time as the ever-changing environment tests the foundations and core. This tool will allow you to apply creative problem solving and use powerful visual tools to diagnose, consider new business models, uncover the real challenges, create large systems, test scenarios, and visually plan the work.

 If you do not have a previous LSP certification course, please sign up now for one of the scheduled courses being offered (and we have one right before this one). 

This is a fast-paced, jam-packed program, so be prepared to become immersed in deep-level thinking.  The training is based on our work with clients, and client cases will be presented such as in health care, governments, and private industry.  The underpinnings of our strategy work are based on the work and research of the founding fathers of LSP—Johan Roos, and Bart Victor—as well as their collaborations with Statler & Burgi. 

Along with your manual, you will also receive templates you can use to better understand clients’ needs, research articles, LSP diagnostic cards, sample road maps for visioning, succession planning, and cases where you need to help people out imagining the competition and all other situations where strategic thinking and core senior team alignment is critically required. Remember, you can apply all workshop formats to sessions for mergers & acquisitions, new product development, disaster planning, service design and re-design, and business model planning.

Have we caught your interest? Get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions:
