In January 2024 I was invited to apply the Lego Serious Play Method to a research project focused on Smart & Sustainable Engineering Supply Chains (TSSESC).  The project was funded by the Royal Society of Engineering  and was held at the fabulous Queretaro Campus of Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico.

The Academic staff divided into three teams looking at three supply chain scenarios, PCB Production, Automotive Production and Mattress Manufacture.  The workshop was designed around the four section double diamond, discover, define, develop, deliver and the aim was to develop definitions of future projects and collaborations.  Participants started by explaining their research focus using LSP individual builds, moved onto group builds exploring the sustainable problems of supply chains and finally build systems models which explored the issues of building sustainable supply chains on real life case studies.

The powerful mix of co-design using play, flow, creativity, metaphors and Lego unleashed some fabulous creativity and new thinking allowing participants to  work together and build relationships across both disciplinary and geographic boundaries.
