Presentation: Revolutionising Business Analysis with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® 

Often Business Analysts (BAs) encounter various challenges when dealing with stakeholders. Misaligned objectives, lack of engagement, communication barriers, resistance to change, unclear expectations, and the list goes on. Dealing with these challenges became an essential part of the BA work. But how can BAs overcome these challenges whilst minimising burnouts, reducing stress levels and skipping routine’s boredom? 

How good it would be engaged stakeholders uncovering hidden needs and preferences, leading to more comprehensive and prioritised requirements? Or fostering deeper shared understanding and alignment among team members by allowing each person to express ideas, requirements, and concerns more effectively?  

Imagine exploring complex adaptative problems from new angles, sparking creativity and unleashing new solutions. Or even simply conducting engaging, interactive, and fun workshops, leading to increased stakeholder buy-in and ownership. 

Studies show that traditional notions of work are undergoing a transformation. Organisations are embracing creativity, innovation, and collaboration by infusing elements of play into their organisational culture. Business Analysts can have a pivotal role in integrating playful elements into activities, processes, and environments to foster exploration, experimentation, and enjoyment in the workplace. 

In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore how we can transform the way Business Analysts approach their work through collaborative model-building exercises using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP). We’ll create tangible representations of collective goals and priorities, demonstrating how to improve communication of complex ideas and promote shared understanding. 

Let’s together unlock the full potential of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® in Business Analysis and revolutionise our approach to communication, problem-solving, and stakeholder engagement.
