WHY REAL TIME?
Much have been written on 4th industrial revolution. We all face it’s challenges – exponential growth and on-going change. How to be in time to answer these challenges and to shape them?
Traditional ten-and five-years plans, based on year of work and classic management concepts, fail today. Information is doubling in hours, bringing in changes with the same speed. The speed is so high, that new information can wash off a work of years in no time. To follow the speed, we have to take the stand at once, any delay lead to the failure. Speed of information becomes the most important factor to leverage any business. We have to decide now -in Real Time. Answers to the new challenges are to be found today, not tomorrow. Tomorrow the new tide is coming.
WHY USE LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® MODELS?
Before we had the time to drown ourselves in gathering, systematizing, analyzing and finally articulating in writing the conclusions of strategic work. We fixed in words and often got lost in pages and volumes. It took more time to communicate the results – do strategic communication work. New communication ways added more speed, but still use mostly the power of word.
With 3D image we get more meaning to pack into our understanding. A metaphor and story make a shortcut for strategic communication. It also appeal not only to rationality and mind. 3D models and serious play ways launch other intellects of ours, and bear more information, than a word. Emotional intellect carry a lot of specific knowledge. Not only rationality, but feelings and values shape our decisions in play.
We hear the voices of stakeholders, that is crucial. We do not step over human things, often neglected when cash is priority. We know more and learn more through reflection, and continue building when learned more. Therefore strategic planning meetings in real time result in better decisions. We also make them quicker and get more to go on with.
