LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®
SERIOUS GAMES WITH VIRTUAL TANGIBILITY
For more than 12 years, we have been an established provider of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops and facilitator trainings. Before that, we’ve been active as the extended arm of LEGO® for the DACH region.
LEGO®SERIOUS PLAY® is a moderated process that combines the benefits of playing and modelling using LEGO® bricks with the serious matters of the business world. This way, strategy, problem solving and team processes are being developed with a high degree of efficiency. Change is clearly understood. Regardless of the strategy, the focus is on “pragmatic operationalisation”. A LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop is followed by action! Concrete. Committed. Consequent.
Irrespective of the methodology, it’s all about the “big picture”, it’s about understanding and activating. Today, many business models are digital already, and organizations often got “disembodied” long ago.
As the PLAY SERIOUS AKADEMIE, we offer a broad spectrum between “SERIOUS” and “PLAY”.
You’ve got the controls in your hand, as to how much motivation and fun, how much feedback and how much topic processing should be included. We work agile. The mix can vary within the workshops, meetings and congresses, depending on the DNA of the target group and the event.
“Gamification” is the trend, and being agile is the zeitgeist. The answer from academy founder Mathias Haas, THE TREND WATCHER: “It’s about understanding systems and visualizing complexity”, says the LEGO®SERIOUS PLAY® professional.
Play and serious – what seems contradictory at first has many facets: adults pursue a goal while playing, the creative process itself takes place with a lot of creativity and imagination. It’s all about commitment – by each participant to his organisation.
In other words: LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is the 3D printer for your thoughts.

WORKSHOP WITH LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® BETWEEN 3 AND 1.000 PEOPLE – WHERE EVER YOU LIKE
People learn while they construct – more than they think. It’s practical, direct and tangible. Thinking in 3D, as it were – because your company does also live in many different, very dynamic dimensions. Common event attendees become highly involved participants. The level of engagement within workshops is significantly higher, hierarchies flatten and consumers become producers.
No matter whether you are in the middle of a project, want to advance visions, approach strategy development, plan innovation workshops or need to sharpen the team understanding of your employees: We have the right solution for every occasion, also in combination with other methods. Do you want to produce content – beyond Powerpoint and flipchart – and transfer these concrete results into the organisation in a sustainable way? Then ask us now for your individual workshop. Because we can do everything, except for standard.
WE NEED TO JUSTIFY GAMING
Techniques like LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitate an agile and intuitive way of working -across all hierarchies and group sizes. No matter whether based on virtual haptics or live on site. Or as a hybrid event.
Whether 3 or 300 participants: The PLAY SERIOUS AKADEMIE caters for every event format, for every business trade in any kind of size. And: We can work with any kind of problem. Yes, we name it as it is – because you wouldn’t be looking for an experienced companion if there wasn’t a problem to be solved. Well known especially in the German speaking areas of Europe, the PLAY SERIOUS AKADEMIE probably owns the largest store of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® bricks in Germany (except for the LEGO® shops, of course). A large warehouse means large events. The experience of more than 12 years and 1.182 events give us an unprecedented experience in generating sustainable results.
With LEGO® bricks. In that process, it is secondary whether we are working on team building, strategy planning, project management or optimisation.
For the PLAY SERIOUS AKADEMIE, workshop facilitation is a skilled craft – also in virtual environments. It does not make much sense to copy the real world 1:1 into a digital space. The answer must be a hybrid format.
That’s why the PLAY SERIOUS AKADMIE has invented the concept of “virtual haptics”. What sounds contradictory at first does enable a relevant workflow and sustainable results – be it from your home office or distributed across the globe. As the leading provider in the German speaking areas, we supply effective solutions. In digital. Because our first thoughts are not analogue, and they are far from average.
Besides LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops and facilitator trainings, PLAYMOBIL pro. completes the portfolio of the PLAY SERIOUS AKADEMIE. For this technique, we are offering trainings with virtual haptics as worldwide first movers.
