|Abstract:||Reading Time: 2 minutes Facilitating a LEGO Serious Play Workshop: Consumer Health Regulary Affairs (Pharma). After merging the independent national regulation affairs departments to one global department, the challenge for the employes was to identify new ways of collaboration and to define steps necessary to set up this new mindset.|
|Description:||Recently, an international pharmaceuticals company had merged all country-separated consumer health regulary affairs departments to one national-wide corporate-wide department.
In behave of an external agency I facilitated with a co-facilitator a LEGO Serious Play workshop (6 tables with 10 ppl. each).
All former country representatives came together to identify new ways of collaboration in the new future organisational structure.After a warm-up exercise fiddling with the LEGO bricks the participants ran the Lego Serious Play method on two levels of abstraction: individual/personal one, and new department-wide.
Lego Serious Play 1a: “Individual Models — Personal Core Competence”
The participants on each table were asked to build a personal model of their most important personal core competence. At each table, all participants shared their stories by explaining their models built.
Lego Serious Play 1b: “Individual Models — New Collaboration in the Future”
The participants on each table were asked to build a model of their personal view how they could collaborate in the new organisational structure. At each table, all participants shared their stories by explaining their models built.
Lego Serious Play 2a: “Shared Models — New Collaboration in the Future”
The participants on each table built a shared model out of the individual models on the table to answer the question: “How should we collaborate in the Future?”. At each table, all participants agreed to one common meaning of the model built.
Lego Serious Play 2b: “Shared Models — New Collaboration: Next Steps”
Each group/table presented their interpretation in the plenum. Next steps were defined and collected at a flip chart.
