Q & A on LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ products and method

How can I become a licensed LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ partner?
Up until May 1st 2010 the LEGO Group maintained a network of licensed partners trained with LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ facilitators.
After the launch of the open source model on May 1st 2010 the LEGO Group will not be maintaining a licensed partner network and will not be offering LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ certification training. As a result facilitators using the LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ method (LSP method) will no longer be paying a license to use the method. In essence, this means that the LEGO Group will guarantee the quality of the LSP method and the physical material as such, whereas practitioners will be responsible for the quality of the delivery of the actual workshops based on the LSP method. We know that previous members of our partner network are offering training under the open source. During 2012 a number of these will receive an accreditation, acknowledging that their facilitator certification programs live up the standard set by LEGO Group.

I request information about a LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ certification. I am interested to learn and get certified in the methodology, I would like to know when are the next courses, in what place, associated costs and duration?
The LEGO Foundation and LEGO Group have developed the LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ method and The LEGO Foundation the rights to the IP and also sell the materials used in workshops. However, we no longer offer certification programs in the method, nor do we go direct to the end-client.

Consequently, we do not as such work with establishing centers.  The method is delivered through independent consultants, facilitators, and consulting companies, some of these have been involved in the LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ domain since the initial introduction of the method. At that time it was offered through a license-based partner community, but today it is an open model, where LEGO markets the products, but the certification of facilitators is being offered by experienced trainers in the community.

At the site you will find training offerings, some are certification programs uniquely focused on the LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ method (e.g. The ones from the Assocation of Master Trainers in the LEGOŽ SERIOUS PLAYŽ method) some are programs where the method plays an important part.
