Let's play – LEGO® Serious Play® method
Sweco Architects Story
The leaders of Sweco Architects decided to tackle their challenges in a workshop, led by the familiar facilitator. The method chosen was Lego Serious Play and the workshop was called Sweco Architects Story – what kind of stori is the one told about us?
Red represents the business and yellow HR. Big lego bricks snap into their places and the tiger takes a big, determined leap on top of the model.
The situation in question is a facilitated workshop based on the Lego® Serious Play® method, in which a significant change in Destia’s HR organisation is about to be implemented.
The HR organisation of Destia has been renewed during the last year; it has now been designed as a service that genuinely serves the needs of the business and personnel. The significant change has impact to Destia’s business model, as well as to the roles of every single employee in HR.
