Itha Taljaard is a certified facilitator of LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® method and materials, with over ten years’ experience. On this basis, Sense to Solve offers Participatory Strategic Development Workshop using the LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® materials and methodology.
The LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® methodology is an innovative, experimental process designed to enhance innovation and performance.
This hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities. The methodology deepens the reflection process and supports an effective dialogue – for everyone in the organisation.
Building landscape models with LEGO® bricks, which includes storytelling and playing out possible scenarios, helps to stimulate creativity, deepen understandings, solve problems and recognise opportunities.
The LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® method can be used as a standalone process. For example, a facilitated meeting or workshop process designed to solve a particular problem, to stimulate creativity or improve communication.
Sense to Solve also integrates LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® materials and methodologies into other training processes, such as, Design Thinking, Creative Intellect, FutureSensing and so on.
In all instances, participants are led through a series of probing questions that encourage a deep dive into the subject.
Participants build 3D LEGO® models, which serve as a basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem solving and decision making.
The process also creates a social bond between groups who “play” together.
Sense to Solve offers a wide range of Participatory Strategic Development Processes using the LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® materials and methodology.
We can accommodate small, highly personalised strategic sessions and can cater for large groups of up to 120 people.
The minimum time requirement for a session that incorporates LEGO® STRATEGIC PLAY® materials and methodologies is three hours and more intensive sessions could take place over a number of days.
