The teams were invigorated with this innovative way of actually building the models of the future. It forced them to step out of their comfort zone but also engage in deep and meaningful conversation with individuals they did not work with on a regular basis.
Itha is the most dynamic person with unlimited energy and drive I have ever met. She is extremely focused and with an outstanding organisation ability. Her ability to deliver what she undertakes is praiseworthy.
The workshops were highly successful. The LEGO immediately takes all of the participants, even the engineers, out of their comfort zone.
Design Thinking: This was definitely the most enjoyable, paradigm shifting and action inducing training course I’ve been on. Thanks, Itha!
‘LEGO Serious Play’ is an amazing initiative that can guide strategic planning…..it will unleash potential within any team/company….encourage teamwork….clearly understand and bed down the difference between responsible vs accountable and create a real golden thread that runs from top to bottom in all we do
The result was immediate: positive increase in production, maintaining the desired quality levels and Lodox had its best years ever after this exercise so that we’ve paid out bonuses to staff last year.
My thinking has changed on a personal and business level and will definitely influence the way in which we want to solves problems/ issues etc.
Itha is amazing – there is no doubt in my mind. She equipped us with the tools to think strategically and plan for the future of our company. Thanks to Itha, major restructuring of our organisation has taken place, to take our company from good to great!
