about LEGO® Serious Play®

LEGO® Serious Play® is a facilitated thinking, communicating and problem-solving tool for organisations. In an environment where change happens rapidly, LEGO® Serious Play® helps participants to uncover hidden potential, understand & address the challenges they face, discover innovative solutions and prepare for the unexpected.


In 2015 Oliver Knapman became certified by the Association of Master Trainers as a facilitator of the LEGO® Serious Play® methodology.

He has since delivered workshops to a range of multi-national companies, startups and NGOs in the Shanghai area, and has partnered with explore CRS to bring LEGO® Serious Play® workshops to international schools across Asia.

Oliver's workshop participants have included:

H&M | The British Consulate-General Shanghai | Danone | Covestro | EF | McDonald’s | American Chamber of Commerce Shanghai | Dell | Unilever | Nanjing Foreign Language School (BC Academy) | The European Chamber of Commerce Shanghai | Ikea | IMAX | Conde Nast Centre of Fashion and Design | Manchester Business School | New York University | Newell Brands | Cisco | Bayer | Time Out Shanghai | L'Oréal | Coca-Cola | Costa Coffee | Lego | Coach


how it works

The method draws on extensive research in the fields of organisational psychology, education and business to guide participants in communicating with each other to share understandings, feelings, knowledge and experience.

Workshops can be used in myriad ways for both high school students and faculty staff.
Each workshop is designed with a specific outcome in mind, but tend to fall in to the following broad categories:

•  Staff induction and on-boarding
•  Goal setting
•  Creating a shared vision
•  School or department culture and identity workshops
•  Change management
•  College / Career counseling
•  “The Strategic Imagination Experiment”
