Productivity tools and techniques have been a frequent topic of discussion here. A personal kanban has been a highlight of this topic. Recently, I came across a great video series combining a common Lean training tool, Legos, and project management kanban system.
Last year, workers at a design studio in London recently went on a quest to find a better way to organize themselves while in the office. There were a few requirements. It had to be big. It had to cover a few months into the future. It had to work both online and offline. They settled on Legos.
Using Legos, Vitamins built a large, wall-mounted calendar with flat gray pieces as the base, representing the days of the week. Each person has their own line on the calendar, and is represented by a custom minifig character. Different projects are assigned different colors of bricks. The wall-sized calendar made entirely of Lego bricks also syncs with Google automatically via smartphone screenshots.

This Lego calendar may be the most fun business calendar ever created. Do you see an opportunity for this approach in your business?
