Question #1

What is LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a facilitated technique where people use a selection of LEGO® bricks to follow through a series of structured exercises during which they build models that represent metaphors of their strategic challenges, personal or business.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a method that helps teams, organizations, and individuals to become more effective and perform better by fostering creativity, building new knowledge, and sharing and reflecting in an honest and playful manner.

Question #2

What is the LEGO® Company’s involvement with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® today?

LEGO® produces and sells brick sets developed specifically for use with the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and they provide a set of Trademark Guidelines, which everyone involved with or using the method must comply with.

Question #5

What are the differences between the Association of Master Trainer’s facilitator training program and other programs?

The Association’s Certification Training is the ONLY program which includes the essential parts of the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method, which are the 4 step Core Process and the seven Application Techniques. Our training curriculum therefore covers the full scope of what the methodology encompasses and can offer.

These essential parts are NOT included in the LEGO Group’s Creative Commons License, which makes the basics of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® available for common use. These concepts were developed by Robert Rasmussen after he left the LEGO Group and therefore are exclusively the copyright of the Association. These concepts are included in the curriculum and defined in our facilitator manual.

Question #6

What are my rights for using the documentation and learning outcomes from the training?

You are free to use everything you have learned and received for delivering LSP with end-users.

Question #7

Once I have completed the Foundation Training can I train new facilitators in using the method with end-users?

No. The Terms of Use Agreement does not allow you to do that. However, if you would like to become a Trainer of Facilitators, there is an official process of training and approval provided by the Association.
