Goals of the Super Hero Game were:
The Lego Serious Play was set up and ran at different levels of abstractions to gain specific insights and individual commitments.
Lego Serious Play 1: “Individual Models”
The goal of this LSP game was to share individual and personal insights regarding to the question posed in the group. Each builder images and constructs an individual model for herself to answer the question raised by the facilitator. After building, each builder explained her model.
Lego Serious Play 2: “Shared Models, Connections and Guiding Principles”
The goal of this game was to create a shared understanding and consensus of the topic in question. The group consolidates all individual models in a common shared model agreed by all. After building the shared model, the participants identified break points, interfaces, and connections in the model.
“Building Connections and Playing Emergences”
The goal of this activity was to simulate the consequences of decisions by playing scenarios. The participants explored how the models or the landscape responded to dynamic changes / events. Therefore, after building the shared model, the participants identified break points, interfaces, and connections in the model.
The goal of this activity is to support strategic decision making in the real world. The participants shall develop high-level guidelines to implement in the real world actions / decisions derived from the models built. The facilitator asked the group to answer the question “What can I do personally to achieve the ideal state?”
