Open ears and nimble fingers - LEGO SERIOUS PLAY™ at the 4th PRINCE2 Day in Cologne

How do you get more than 60 stakeholders to work together on a project? How can you speak a common language in global project teams despite different cultures and interests? What is the identity of a project and how can it be communicated to all participants? Questions with which the experienced project manager and LEGO SERIOUS PLAY facilitator Jens Hoffmann met with an open ear at the 4th PRINCE2 Day in Cologne on 12.4.08 from the consultants and project managers present. In his one-hour talk, Hoffmann was able to report from his own experience of projects that threatened to fail because of these questions. "Out of sheer desperation", Hoffmann reported, he therefore got the stakeholders together for a LEGO SERIOUS PLAY workshop. As a result, the participants were able to look at a unified picture of the external and internal representation of the project, play through management processes from start to finish and, above all, successfully continue the project.

Playfully to success - starting projects effectively

Presentation at the 4th PRINCE2 DAY on 11 April 2008 in Cologne

At the beginning of the project, the PRINCE2 processes "Starting up a project" and "lnitiating a project" are decisive for the further success of the project. Here the management team lays the foundations to be prepared for the unexpected later on. This is where the project's external impact and the internal rules of the game are defined.

Experienced PRINCE2 Practitioner Jens Hoffmann uses a field report from a PRINCE2-led project to show how LEGO SERIOUS PLAY (TM) increased the quality of results and shortened the duration. Participants will learn how project managers use the scientifically based Lego concept to tap the creative potential of the entire team and thus improve management processes at the same time.

The current conference programme and registration information can be found on the homepage of the 4th PRINCE2 Day.
