Lego Serious Play "is the first application of Lego for the serious world of adults at work. The method combines 'play' and Lego bricks for the purpose of enhancing business performance." Cute.

It's pretty amazing what things buisiness types will spend their money on.

It's pretty amazing the lengths they'll go to legitimize their desires.

This? This is a ten inch, flesh colored, headed, neck massager.
With veins sculpted in it.

if you haven't already, visit the about page and try to ascertain what it says by the three pictures alone. a group of people with some legos, a cartoon toaster, and a couple of lions. hmmm...

Hey, compared to some corporate retreats / team-building exercises I've been subjected to, this sounds downright productive. Brainstorming a prototype or strategy, but with legos instead of (say) UML or a whiteboard. Sure, why not.

Of course, I bet most sessions in the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY LANDSCAPE ROOM tend to bog down pretty quickly into hunting around for just the right brick, or just outright goofing off.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

i found the about page particulary goofy, too. when i discovered this i thought it was an april's fool. but it's not. it's for real. a search on google turns up dozens of legitimate references, even one on lego's site (scroll to the bottom of the page).

A client I do work for has found that it's not so much play that increases creativity but lack of fear. Play is just a way to diminish fear.
