Building a Lean Startup using Lego – Part 1. Do Schools Kill Creativity – A Response to Ken Robinson. By BRENT SILBY Robinson argues that schools are primarily concerned with conformity and that this has a negative impact on creativity.

Do Schools Kill Creativity – A Response to Ken Robinson

He suggests that by grouping students by age, delivering a standard curriculum, and testing them against standardized criteria, schools are essentially diminishing the individuality and creativity of students. In his Do Schools Kill Creativity TED Talk, Robinson states that: “…all kids have tremendous talents. And we squander them, pretty ruthlessly.” Robinson seems to be implying that schools currently place little value on creativity. Nevertheless, Robinson has made this claim. So, what is going on here? It is interesting to note Robinson’s use of the term “divergent thinking”. Robinson suggests that schools need to focus on the individual student rather than treating them as identical products.

Why LEGO Serious Play works

The opposite of play is depression.” – Dr. Stuart Brown, in a magnificent TED talk on the importance of play (posted here in case you haven’t already seen it): I know that I overuse the word “magic” to describe what happens during LEGO Serious Play (LSP), but I can’t stop myself. When a group of people sit around a table, each outfitted with a little box of fairly unremarkable plastic bricks, and start building as a way of exploring a topic of common interest, what happens really is magic: the stories, the laughter, the incredible richness of thought and feeling that can be expressed through just a few minutes of assembling LEGO models and sharing a brief story is dazzling, every single time.

Magical, really. Except it’s not ‘magic’ – no illusions, no trickery, no magic wands. LSP is, however, grounded strongly in learning theory and epistemology. LSP works because it engages participants. And, perhaps most importantly, LSP is fun! Like this: Cynefin Lego Game.

LSP-01. Why Lean Canvas vs Business Model Canvas? I often get asked why I created a different adaptation from the original Business Model Canvas by Alex Osterwalder.

Why Lean Canvas vs Business Model Canvas?

Lately, this question has bubbled up in frequency which is why I decided to take the time to outline the thought process that went into creating Lean Canvas. First a quick timeline. Timeline May 2009 I was first exposed to the Business Model Canvas through Alex Osterwalder’s book: “Business Model Generation”. While I found the book beautifully illustrated, I originally dismissed the canvas approach as “too simple”. Lego Serious Play. If you follow the lean startup philosophy you will understand that words can mean a lot.

Lego Serious Play

What I mean is that when you try to capture the essence of the assumptions behind your business model on a single page with something like the strategy canvas, every word you use can be very important. Each word actually makes a difference and finding the right few words to capture all that insight you and your team have in your heads so that it will fit within the physical boundaries of the canvas segments can be quite difficult. In theory forcing us to make it concise is good, it means we should really pick the right words, be careful with our language and make sure that the few words scrawled on Post-it notes in each of the canvas segments hold the same meaning for each member of the team. Of course its so important because if you are using a lean startup approach your team members will use these words on a daily basis to design the experiments to test the key assumptions in the business model.

Why Playing with LEGO® is so Important! I know that my desire to get into engineering was significantly influenced by my playing with LEGO® as a child. I loved the space sets and recall many, many hours playing with them. I would build something, play with it, change it, play some more, change it again, etc. I was always tinkering with my designs. Always learning and making improvements. I was still playing with these sets in college and I still have many of these pieces. It is clear to me that the combination of rules and structure (bricks only connect in certain ways and there are a limited set of parts) along with the flexibility to be creative (there are so many connection combinations) is what engineering is all about.

Today I was lucky enough to get a place on a Lego Serious Play workshop run by David Gauntlett, who uses lego to conduct all kinds of interesting research in Media, Art and Design at the University of Westminster. The aim of the session was to explore the use of Lego as a tool for gathering qualitative data during the research process, as well as reflecting upon my own PhD experiences so far and learning from other people’s experiences. Using Lego for metaphorical modelling David explained that the idea behind Lego Serious Play is that by using a visual aid the participants are encouraged to think about their experiences and opinions and represent them in model form.

The idea is that it gives people a new way to express and explore complex subjects and ideas through a creative method. College Professor Resume Samples.

I found a recent article in the Vancouver Sun paper on September 29, 2011, to be very disappointing. The article explains that a group of teachers form a secondary school attended an offsite retreat where they spent the day engaging in co-operative team building.

But the majority of the activities included playing ping-pong, air hockey, foosball, archery, bocce, shuffleboard, Frisbee golf, volleyball, basketball, and board games. First, it is unfortunate these opportunities for professional development are not better planned, organized, and facilitated with real business goals and outcomes attached to every activity. I am sure many readers can relate to attending workshops or training where the goal or outcome for the session was unclear. But offsite, educational meetings that incorporate play can be extremely useful if the activities are relevant and are connected directly back to work.
