Improve Your Business With Bricks
LEGO toys are not just for children anymore

Since 1958, children have loved LEGO bricks, and they are not alone. Parents and teachers are also big fans of the colorful toys. In fact, the bricks are so popular that they have been named “Toy of the Century”-twice!

自从1958年以来,小孩们已经爱上了玩乐高积木拼装玩具了。他们就不再感到孤独了,因为老师和家长们也都是成为这种颜色鲜艳的乐高迷了。事实上,这种方块木头(或者是塑料)为什么如此地流行,皆因它们被称之为“世纪玩具。”而且还两次荣获此项殊荣。

The popularity of LEGO toys should be not surprise. The LEGO Group has spent much of its history focusing on fun, high-quality toys. Playing with their bricks can improve creativity, teamwork and problem-solving skills. Even the name LEGO-taken from the Danish term leg godt-means “play well.”

乐高玩具得到如此广泛的流行,就一点也不觉得奇怪了。乐高集团绞尽脑汁,花费大量的精力专注研究这款带有浓厚的趣味性,高质量的玩具。玩这种方块木头(乐高)能增进你的创作力,团队协力和问题解决的技能。虽然,乐高的名字取自丹麦语的“term leg godt”意即“好玩”

But LEGO bricks are just toys, right? Wrong. Children, as it turns out, aren’t the only people who can benefit from playing with the bricks. In 1995, the LEGO Group’s owner wanted to improve the way his company made decisions. With the help of university researchers, LEGO serious Play was born. At its heart, LEGO serious Play is a process for improving business performance. But it is also about playing with bricks-seriously.

乐高仅仅是一种方块木头的玩具,对吗?错。人们后来发现,不仅孩子们,成年人都可以从玩乐高中受益。1995年,乐高集团的老板希望改进他们公司,作出决定,谋求大学研究人员的帮助,“乐高认真好玩”(LSP)从此问世。“乐高认真好玩” 它的核心所在,就是玩这种游戏的过程中可以提升你的商业技能。但,它同时也是商场中的一种真的较量奥。
Most companies face their problems by holding meetings. Unfortunately, meetings are not always the best way to resolve problems. Meetings can make it difficult for everyone to participate and can lead people to oversimplify problems. As a result, ideas are lost, misunderstandings occur, and some opinions are ignored.

大多数的单位(公司)面临的问题,是通过举行会议来解决。遗憾的是,会议不是解决问题的最佳途径。会议只能给与会人员带来艰难的局面,并且会导致人们把问题看得过于简单化。其结果是,好的想法被丢弃,误解常常发生和一些好的主张不被采纳。

LEGO Serious Play uses play to overcome these difficulties. Participants use bricks to build models that show how they and their organization work. This is done over several rounds of building and then taking about what has been made.

“乐高认真好玩”常用作游戏来解决这种困局。参与者用这种方块木头的玩具作出模样,来展示他们如何解决问题和组织能力。把房子砌好几次以后,然后你们所要谈的问题就已经解决了。

There are many advantages to dealing with problems through play. While paying, everyone gets to participate. More importantly, the process helps people examine problems form different points of view.

通过这样玩游戏的方式有很多有利的条件来解决存在的问题。在一边玩游戏的时候,人人都有参与的机会。而最重要的是;在玩游戏的过程中,从不同的观点中得到验证解决问题的所在。

Does it work? “Oh, it really works,” says David Gauntlett, a university professor and Serious Play researcher. “it gets people thinking and responding to each other in a different way.”

能行吗?“奥,非常好”,戴维 关勒特说,一位教授和“乐高认真好玩”的研究人员。“在解决问题不同的途径中,人们互相考虑与回答。”

You never know. The answer to your next problem may not be in discussion or a meeting. It may be in the toy box.

你可能从来不知道,要回答你下一个问题时,有可能不再用讨论或再次召开会议了,解决问题的答案有可能在玩具盒里面奥。
