LEGO Group: Building Strategy
“The case is engaging and rewarding for students because, firstly, it’s fun. Who doesn’t love LEGO? Secondly, it’s complex: the threats are real, the opportunities are not guaranteed. Finally, the affection the students have for the company is important; this leads to a very surprising discussion when students realise how many products – things that they hold personally dear – are sacred to them and therefore difficult to deal with dispassionately. It’s fun for them to realise how hard it is to critically analyse a product when you love it. In contrast, when teaching other cases, I often find students are too dispassionate! The LEGO case makes for an interesting comparison." Read more
