Usual or Expected Outcomes: Confidence: Building landscape models with LEGO bricks, giving them meaning through storymaking, and playing-out various possible scenarios, deepens understanding, sharpens insight, and socially "bonds" together the group who "plays" together. Commitment: people are more committed to the decisions after having been invited into the key discussions and decision-marking process.
Get to the issues faster: you will inevitably surface indiscussables and save time through deep dialogue about your complex issues so you can make more, better and faster decisions.
Potential pitfalls: Too short time
Participation from managers that do not value the voice of the employees
