The members of the Association of Master Trainers in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method provide facilitator training and certification in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method.
The Association has two main purposes:
1. To guard, maintain and further develop the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method to ensure its integrity and high quality.
2. To secure that its members deliver an uniform and high quality training of new LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitators regardless of language or geographical location.
The founding members of the Association are Per Kristiansen and Robert Rasmussen. Both have been involved with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® since its very early days more than 15 years ago.

Currently there are ten trainers of facilitators belonging to the Association. In the coming years we will include more trainers in the Association covering more languages and more geographical regions.
In 2010 the LEGO Company made the basic LEGO SERIOUS PLAY idea commonly available to interested parties through their Creative Commons License. Together with other factors this has led to an increased interest in the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method. The higher awareness has naturally also led to more interest in offering training in facilitating and designing with the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method and an increased risk of diluting the method and infringing on others copy rights.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method is a facilitated process, and the results and impact are directly tied to the quality of the workshop design and the facilitation. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY delivers exceptional value, when the process is designed and delivered by a well trained and skilled facilitator.
With the growth follows a demand for someone to look after the integrity method and for facilitator training process with global standards, quality assurance and a curriculum that reaps the fruits of 15 years of involvement in the development of the method and the training facilitators. The Association is the guardian of the method, has established global standards and provide guidance to people interested in becoming LEGO SERIOUS PLAY facilitators.
On the following pages we give you a short introduction to the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and links to where you can learn more about the method. The focus of this site is to help you make the facilitator training choice that fits your needs the best.
