Teamwork (noun) the combined action of a group of people, especially when effective and efficient.  What is new?  LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®.

LSP is a creative meeting, communication and problem-solving method where participants are lead through a series of questions which dive deeper and more quickly to gain access to often surprising new insights. Participants build models in response to facilitator’s questions. The models serve as basis for group discussions, knowledge sharing, problem solving and decision making while building consensus building and eliciting everyone’s best thinking.

LSP is an efficient methodology with it’s roots in brain science, combined with communication protocols designed to ensure all participants may confidently engaged in creating shared outcomes, which otherwise might take months of sustained effort to achieve.
