Doug Assesses Kari Lake's Chances in Arizona

"Let's move to what I believe is going to be a definite pickup for a hold for Arizona and Republicans is Carrie Lake. She is moving up in the polls while Hobbs is moving down. I'm going to speak to this. This one is a classic case of what I see wrong in politics, especially from the Democrats and how they've chosen to take and move their elections really away from the actually engaging and involving Katie Hobbs is here like Joe Biden, so to speak in the base, but not willing to make care of climb to claim that carrier likes views or radical and that bad and she wasn't going to give her a platform. The problem is that nobody knows who Katie Hobbs is that she's become the epitome of what is wrong with politics and when you do that in a year in which you have state slack Arizona and others who are not in favor of the president and President Biden who seems to do the same thing. It's just a continuation and frankly she's facing those headways. Kelly is doing debates with Kelly is still facing those same headwinds. This one is one I have been saying now for the last month. As Carrie LEGO, so goes Arizona. She has been the engine driving these races doing a phenomenal job in reaching people, getting press. And highlighting the message and not taking any bull. She is definitely a no bull Canada out in Arizona and Lake is I think boys to win this. I think she wins it. She also masters also wins his race and this again is a hold seat for Republicans going forward. It'll be interesting again to see how she governs in this rights, but right now I think Carrie Lake has the edge. She is trending ahead and Katie Hobbs is running a cowardly campaign. And frankly, all you can put to

"Gen consoles. That's the right answer. You just get nailed it. I think that's the one. But you also, but I think a little bit of a separate point that you kind of ancillary made there is that that's a different type of game than a LEGO game, right? Some types of LEGO like smash and stuff and being in a city and stuff. That's not exactly what LEGO games have been. They've been kind of walked through a scene, right? And they're fun. And I get why people like them. So I'm not here to bash LEGO games. Similarly, to brawlers, I just think there's not much that they offer me. But they need to branch out. So there was like the LEGO city undercover game, right? Which is like a GTA game. Before I even apply a genre, I want to also get some cool gameplay out of it. So I think that's a really good example that are like a burnout game where you're like, it's about destruction. It's about building things, then knocking them down. That type of stuff is really appealing. And I think it would be good for LEGO. Now, of course, in terms of franchises, married with LEGO, I actually think Nintendo has a bunch that are really cool and I think like the Mario matches LEGO stuff is really neat. And then I think like a Zelda LEGO game would be hilarious. Like that would be so cool. As long as it was a Zelda game made out of LEGO, that would be the coolest thing ever, right? Because I love that aesthetic. The 3D dot heroes type thing. Exactly the top down. Yeah, that'd be cool. That's a good call. So I did not have an answer to this question, and then I was getting McDonald's for lunch because I'm a garbage person. I got McDonald's. And well, maybe. But there's a car stopped in front of me at the light, and they had taken all of the Jeep, Cherokee lettering at the back of their car, removed it and replaced it with nostromo. And then I slowly realized that everything on the back of their car was like alien related. Cool. And I think alien would be a lot of fun as LEGO because normally you have to take it really seriously, you know, just like tonally for a video game. But LEGO would just throw that out the window and you could just have fun being hunted by a giant neck or a xenomorph. Well, especially if you would like the aliens route with swarms of aliens. That you can just smash and they fall apart as bricks. You could also get the platforming exploration part where you're exploring what some sort of space station or whatever, and then those are like punctuated with moments of big alien swarms that you can smash apart. Yeah, I can see that. Let's green light LEGO aliens. I can already see the adapted for LEGO chest Bruce through scene where there's like a baby xenomorph. That's like red soy. There's gonna be a lot of fun. Yeah. This genius work, Colin. I'm gonna go to the huge alien fan who was driving. I'm gonna go the lazy route because I think Colin kind of took my answer to some extent of I want to do instead of like a franchise. I want classic 80s and 90s like action sci-fi epics like I would love a LEGO terminator. I would love. I've watched eraser the other day for some reason I wanna see the luggage. We mentioned jumping on top of crocodiles or alligators. They do that in that movie. So come on, let's get these iconic action movies, LEGO file and then just have a good time. I don't think I don't think they've done any R rated properties into LEGO games. Yet, what Jurassic Park rated? Early then, huh? Is there some gnarly stuff? That's skirting that line. Yeah. I've only ever seen the first Jurassic Park. I do. Remember how the dinosaurs eat people in that? It's like the bloodless eating of people, you know? I don't think so. There's somebody's arm that's hanging on a machine at one point. Well, isn't that Sam Jackson's arm? I believe so. Yeah. Spoilers, everybody. It seems onto something, though, with his idea that the LEGO LEGO has like a video game property. It does need a branch out. I think that there needs to be more than a platformer, I think. And I think that's what we started to get with Skywalker saga. So to Damon's Godzilla pitch, I think a kaiju like fighting game in the vein of destroy all monsters. I think that works. If you LEGO fire that, that would rule. I mean, a LEGO first person shooter kind of makes sense to some extent where you're maybe you're shooting like bricks off of an opponent. Like a LEGO mecha game would be cool where you build your own mech and you fight them. I mean, it all works. I think as once they start thinking outside the box of what's traditionally been LEGO, I think that's when we start to see some very cool things. It's funny to think how they do interpret serious stories with these LEGO games and make light of them and it's very funny. I propose Final Fantasy 7 just for you, Nick. LEGO found 77? LEGO remake. I see the death scene the iconic dead scene already happening in the form of hair falls off or something. That game takes itself just seriously enough, but has jokes already that it would be perfect for that. Then we'll need a LEGO Final Fantasy 7 rebirth. Yes. LEGO crisis core. LEGO ever crisis. And come on, if they made the LEGO file fantasy sets. That would be incredible. That would be awesome. And then LEGO Final Fantasy 7 advent children, the epic follow-up movie at two years later. I've never seen that. Have you seen it recently? I owned the four K bluer. What do you think? Does it hold up? It's a bat, it was a bad movie then, but I love it for the sheer sake of fan service. It's a great, great fight scene though. Great fights. With sephiroth? With all the cast actually. Fighting in the church. I have strong memories of that being really cool. The tifa battle in the church while the piano rendition of the battle theme is rocking in the background, like that rules. That movie barely has any plot and the plot that's there is terrible. But it's just a lot of fun. Yeah, and I mean, I remember it being just significantly amazing as a CG product of its time. And it sounds like for the four K version do they even refine it a bit and update it? It is odd to revisit because it was the Pinnacle of what like, this is what the future of CG looks like, but now remake looks better than the movie. It still looks nice, but remake definitely looks better. Cool. Now that we're a week out, Nick, how are you feeling about the announcements of Final Fantasy 7 rebirth and crisis score? Well, if it makes I'm still genuinely super hyped, I've been contemplating rebuying remake integrate on PC..

"Look at us, Nintendo, hot pixel. Anyway, let's talk LEGO games. We have an email from who is our faithful scoop follower, Christopher Smith, and county Durham, UK. This first off, I just want to say absolutely love the podcast. I've been listening to you since the start of the pandemic March 2020. I like well, believe it or not, Christopher Smith we used to be together in a studio every single episode. I look forward to a new episode every week and thank you all to an amazing job. I was really sad to hear of Tina leaving the scoop crew, but hope she will return for the odd episode every now and then. It would be odd if Tina returned. I have a question for you all. Welcome. I'm 80% through getting a platinum trophy on LEGO Star Wars Skywalker saga and finding the game utterly adorable and addictive so far. With no news on the horizon for the next LEGO game, what franchise would you all like to see transformed into a LEGO game? For me, this is Christopher Smith of county Durham talking for me. It would have to be a James Bond LEGO game with levels from all 25 movies and even have multiplayer to play on nostalgia from GoldenEye 64, playing as any of the characters from the series. Imagine playing as mayday, blofeld or jaws, the series is ripe for everything LEGO, love to do with games. Yeah, I could see a LEGO James Bond. It's interesting that this era of ultra popular LEGO is in terms like the analog brick sets. All right, probably more popular than they've ever been with adults and kids and everything. And there's so much revolutionary cool stuff happening and giant sets and it's really neat, but like the games just died, they just stopped. It must be on like a few year delay. There must be things coming, right? It just seems really strange. Well, so LEGO, the Skywalker saga was like, very, very delayed, like by a year or more, right? Yeah. And it's also been reports of trouble behind the scenes on development that game too. Yep. But the game is great. I've also been playing the game, and it's really fun. It's also gorgeous. It just looks incredible for like being, you know, like a platformer esque style thing. I think they've had a lot of complexity from the early days of LEGO Indiana Jones to now where there's like a pretty comprehensive combo system, so many more characters and all that stuff. It's great. But going back to Bond, I think the earlier movies might actually be better for LEGO, better suited for Leo just by because of how by virtue of how bonkers some of the earlier Bond movies get, as opposed to the Craig era, where it's a lot more serious and a lot of people standing in very elegant rooms. And I don't know that that would particularly read well and LEGO form, but in thunderball and all that stuff. I think that works very well for LEGO. Yeah, probably even the Roger Moore era, which is like, that's like the bond that I grew up watching in the 80s. Those movies get pretty silly. That's when he's like pitfall stepping on alligator heads across the swamp, right? Yeah. It's a video game right there. Yep. I'm going to go say that a property that LEGO should do next. And I've probably said this before is Godzilla. Godzilla is all about smashing things. That's what the LEGO games are all about smashing things. And I want to see a LEGO game on the scale of Godzilla, you're smashing buildings made out of Legos and you have a bunch of particle physics can handle that now, right? Like that would actually work really cool. That could actually be a really cool showcase for next.

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. My wife's at home with the family this week had taken care of the business, so she's going to be the one dodging the Legos on the floor. With all those little nieces and nephews running around, they love their Legos. And while Legos have been around, I think my entire lifetime, I was never really a LEGO kid growing up. I know Legos have come and gone, back in my day, they were just simply the red and yellow and blue blocks. They were all little rectangles and squares, and that was about it. You didn't have little boards to put them on. You didn't have little people heads. You didn't have all those kind of little pieces and parts that go with them. But now Legos are being targeted to adults in a different way. A company's coming into national to do a pop up bar at one of the local bars, and it's going to be a LEGO bar. And basically what they're going to do is have LEGO games and LEGO parties and let people build with Legos, but more importantly, drink while playing with Legos. I don't know what Legos have to do with entertainment at a bar. I guess it's the new hot trivia night kind of thing. The biggest problem I always worry about, stepping on them, and more importantly, doing that in your bare feet. Making Legos appeal to adults, I guess there's got to be drinking involved, doesn't there?

"Two habit number two, they also need to learn how to play by the rules of the existing organization of course they will also be breaking a lot of rules, but they need to only break the ones that is absolutely necessary. And then they need to show a great respect towards that those rules were there for a reason, but now we have to do things differently. For these other reasons, and they have to be very good at telling that story. We talked earlier about the frenzy of experimentation at LEGO from the mid 90s through the end of the ploughman years. The main problem with that style of innovation, at least through the lens of the diplomatic rebels theory, was that product developers at LEGO were taking big risks and breaking all of the rules all at once. Often for reasons that seemed Willy nilly. But Graham thinks the company learned its lesson. I believe that a number of the executives at LEGO have been through the years really, really good at cultivating this balance. You know, between the rebel and the diplomat between the discipline and creativity and having a playful culture. Now, that idea of a playful culture leads to one last question that we haven't really talked about yet. And that's the huge influence LEGO has had. On the way all of us think about creativity. Not just kids, and not just adult fans of LEGO, but even businesses. Earlier, we met Robert Rasmussen. He joined LEGO in 1988 as director of R&D for LEGO education, and he led the team that developed the educational curriculum behind the LEGO mindstorms series of programmable robots. And Rasmussen says one day in the early 1990s, killed Kirk christiansen, approached him and shared a confession. He had this gut feeling. What if we hit hard times? You know, what if this increasingly sales kept doesn't continue? Remember, these were the years right after Lagos patents on the brick system had expired. Killed was worried that the company had gotten lazy, and that it wasn't ready to start thinking differently about how to keep growing. In retrospect, of course, we know he was right. But at the time, killed felt like nobody was taking his fears seriously. So he asked Rasmussen to help him explore ways to use LEGO bricks themselves to systematically boost creativity inside the company. The thinking was from Kelly. Well, if we claim that the breaks are good to get children's imagination going, it should also apply to us to ourselves. It's adults. Rasmussen took on the project. And after a few years of experimenting, he discovered that in at least one way, LEGO bricks could make workplaces more effective. By functioning as a kind of democratizing force, during meetings now, let's just acknowledge that most business meetings suck. And that's been true since the beginning of time. Rasmussen thinks it's mainly because of the 2080 problem. Meaning 20% of the people in a meeting typically use up 80% of the time. And of course, it's usually the 20% who already hold all the power. So ideas from the other 80% never even get a hearing. Rasmussen discovered that he could eliminate the 2080 problem by dumping a bunch of LEGO bricks on the table. He would ask an opening question, and then he would have everyone build their answer. Then he'd go around the table and ask everyone to explain what their brick creation represented. The act of building before talking, somehow, leveled the playing field. It empowered people from all levels in a hierarchy to speak more openly. I then got a produce hybrid writing and tried it out on my own team. And this was this year at a moment for me. Wow. This is really, really, very good because the best answers came from the people that never say anything. It came from an administrative assistant Shannon and the designer called energy. Why haven't you ever set these things for before? Because this is the best thing we've heard for a long time in this house. Well, you know, I'm never expected to contribute. I never expected to voice my opinion I never suspect to give my insight and stuff. That for me was this training moment. Wow, this is really, really, really good. That insight grew into a whole methodology called LEGO serious play. Today, Rasmussen is the co director of the organization Christensen spun off from LEGO, specifically to teach that approach. It's called the association of master trainers in the LEGO serious play method. Rasmussen says the group's training sessions bring in at least 10,000 people around the world every year. Including some LEGO employees. And naturally, LEGO sells sets of bricks, specially designed for companies that want to try out the serious play method. The kits include thousands of pieces, and they're expensive. The biggest one costs $790. And they contain such a unique variety of pieces that there's been a funny side effect. The legacy has played products are often able to stock for us facilitators because I think they're bought by many of the adult fans because the labor service playsets are really, really cool sets. There's a collection of pieces that you can not get anywhere else. So do you feel like killed Kirk christiansen was correct that there's something fundamental about the value of imagination and creativity and that we can unlock it using these bricks. We ought to be able to apply that philosophy to ourselves here inside LEGO and unleash new undiscovered levels of creativity. Do you think he was right? Oh, absolutely. I mean, Kel has always had this sort of intuitive sense of what of the power of the brakes. And I think my own discovery through the legacy of his play has been fascinating. And there is something about our hands and there's something about our desire to make things which seems to be part of our genetic coding and stuff like that. And somehow the breaks because of their systematic, which really gives you freedom. It's the fact that the system that you get the freedom to create so many things really quickly. From your perspective as a former insider, I'm wondering if you feel that LEGO in some way rediscovered the essence of play and experimentation under knut store and that's part of the reason the company has had such a successful sort of comeback. Totally, because what you're going to be here installed faith in the brick. Prior to that there was this doubt in the executive that LEGO could not survive in the future by just being a brick company. He totally installed faith. We make The Crown duel and The Crown jewel is a break and we will survive and we will.

"A way, everything is still awesome at LEGO. At least compared to 2003. But the truth is, the company has worked pretty hard to make sure it stays that way. It wasn't just that they made sure that the whole story of the company's crisis and recovery came out in brick by brick, they also set up some new structures to help the company be more disciplined about innovation. I learned about that phase of LEGO's history from David Graham. Today, Graham runs a consulting company based in Copenhagen called diplomatic rebels, and from 2010 to 2019, he was at LEGO. In a part of the company called the future lab. Later renamed the creative play lab. And so where I came into the company in 2010 was the time where now the company has really sort of become good at the existing business, managing that really, really well. Now it was time again to start exploring new territory. But without losing focus on the existing core business. So the challenge here was really to how do we both explore new territory, let's say, for instance, utilization and adopt new technologies and new type of experiences, but without leaving what is absolute that the core essence of the company both in terms of its DNA and values, but also in terms of what their competence design, what they're really good at. At the future lab, Graham worked on pilot projects like, for example, a hybrid physical digital game. It involved building with real LEGO bricks and then scanning the bricks into a virtual environment on a smartphone or a computer. Graham says the lab worked sort of like a tech startup in the sense that the mission was to generate and test lots of new product ideas. Without spending too much time or too much money. But the big difference was that the future lab wasn't trying to disrupt LEGO's existing business. If anything it was just the opposite. Graham says, the lab was always trying to find the right balance between exploring new concepts and building on Lagos foundation. In the bricks and the system of play. I think most companies that have a future lab or an innovation lab or a skunk works or an R&D division, they sort of expect those divisions to be irritants, to be always agitating for change and experimentation. And you're saying that that's not the only role you're saying that those divisions, I think, can be even more effective if they are also aware of the legacy, the core business, the core commitments, and that they figure out how to balance the need for innovation and novelty with the need for continuity and respect for the past. Exactly. Exactly. It's a huge blind spot if you ask me. And maybe one of the core reasons why so many labs innovation labs and units get shut down again because either they end up moving too far away from the existing core they get alienated and perceived to be too far removed from what's going on while strategically important and too far removed from the existing culture of the company and so they get shut down or they end up being too close to the sun where they start ending up just be incremental to the existing coal and a not really able to move any boundaries for the company. In future lab, we called ourselves legal fundamentalists and we did that for a reason because we knew that we had to know more about the legacy and the history and the values behind the companies than anyone else because we knew we were going to be constantly challenged on whether we were true to that and how we were true to that. And you can only tell strong stories if you really understand the story. Another interesting thing about the future lab was that they didn't really measure their success based on how many of their ideas resulted in actual products. Graham says it was more about building up a kind of muscle memory inside LEGO, for disciplined innovation. And I've seen labs as well also being closed down because the KPIs and the measurement that was put on them was only looking at a sort of end result. The first and foremost that you're doing is creating understanding and insights and data and then you are creating new capabilities, new competencies that allows for the company more long-term to become really skilled at this. So a lot of the stuff that we would launch did not go directly into becoming $1 billion businesses for the company, they were rather sort of piloted small the learning was pulled back, new iterations were created insides from those iterations within shared across the rest of the company that then slowly started to adopt some of those things into their regular core product lines. And this is how you create a sort of a solid transformation over many years by constantly integrating what the new stuff you are learning, the new stuff you understanding into the existing core. So it's back to, you know, you're getting the full super tanga to shift its course and not only a few speedboats that ends up being detached from the mothership. David, I'm wondering whether you can comment on to what extent were you consciously aware that there had been a period of great innovation at LEGO that actually perhaps was too radical, perhaps because some had forgotten the sort of core values of the company and had forgotten how to kind of balance radical innovation with being true to the vision. Sure, we were extremely aware of this past. And also because, you know, initially, it was what we were met with most often was that, well, this has already been tried and it nearly brought the company to its death. So we quickly realized that we had to really understand what actually happened in those years. And what had been tried and for what reasons so constantly on the understanding that past, that crisis and being able to tell the story of why we are now doing things different, why this is not a repeat of the past. And how the past and what happened really has strengthened our approach now. And our ability to succeed with these things. Eventually, Graham felt like the future lab had built this practice of balancing innovation with tradition into a real art form. And in 2019, he decided to go indie and start teaching that art form through his consulting firm, diplomatic rebels. What is a diplomatic rebel? How would you describe this as a type of person? Sure, a diplomatic rebel well it's a person but more than anything it's a mindset and a methodology. Because you can even say a company could become a diplomatic rebel. And so just breaking it down, it basically means that you're mixing the rebel, which is, you know, which is creativity, it is curiosity. It is what challenges status quo, you know, it's the people asking the difficult questions in the meetings, you know why are we doing this and why we're not looking at this? You're mixing that with the skills of the diplomat, which is basically having empathy and understanding towards the existing system. Why is it acting the way that it is? Why were things built the way that it was? How to onboard people to new realities and making sure that everyone eventually is pulled towards this new direction. And you need to find balance between those two, both as an individual, if you want to succeed as an entrepreneur, you have to manage that, but also it's back to the ambidexterity of the company having to both manage the existing business and discipline while at the same time being creative and exploring new territory. When Graham teaches the method to executives where their companies. He always emphasizes several principles or habits of diplomatic rebels. Habit number one is to learn resilience. Since innovation is always going to provoke some degree of pushback or resistance. The second habit is something that came straight out of the history of the crisis at LEGO. Point number.

"So what was LEGO's rescue plan? Well, it was to fire ploughman and make new store up himself the CEO, so that he could begin the turnaround from the turnaround. Bill, I think your final chapter sums it all up in a really fun way where you kind of using this rocket ship analogy. When he came on board, he was on a flaming rocket ship that was going down and they kind of had to rebuild it in the air, right? So what wound up being the winning set of strategies that helped to turn around this situation and bring back financial stability and then restore LEGO to its heritage really of being a truly innovative company that was actually continuing to kind of come up with cool new toys every year. I think the first thing was I'm talking about the survival stage initially. Was to bring focus back to the company and to break that self satisfied core, even though the company was in really Dire Straits, there was still this culture of very self satisfied culture that we know best. We know how to design for kids. We've been doing this for decades. And we've just hit a rough patch. There was no sense of the idea that, yeah, we want to value creativity, but also profitability. And so what they initially did was they created a 13 and a half percent sales target. In other words, no matter what, whether it's a new product that you're proposing or if we're looking at an existing line, it had to demonstrate a return on sales that would meet or surpass 13 and a half percent. And that brought focus to the managers of the design teams. That number. The other thing they did to restore a sense of discipline was they had this thing called a design lab and that they were a group of very experienced veteran LEGO designers that did what Godfrey did back in the 1950s and 60s, which was review every single element in their inventory and elements are the unique pieces of LEGO, whether it's a two by two or Indiana Jones whip. It's those special, anything outside of brick that's a special color or design or different. And they found that when they were doing the review that the number of elements had spiraled up to 14,000 and 14,000 elements in their inventory and the elements are very expensive to produce. You have to get an injection molding machine for each one of those. 8 different police has been 6 different chefs, et cetera. So they really called that. So there was this process of, you know, when I think about it, it's this idea of bringing discipline to creativity. And I think we'll be sort of a recurring theme. They try to carry that over into other areas as well. Becoming customer driven once again, really understanding deeply understanding your customer. And that's become such a cliche, but remember that LEGO had lost sight of its core customer. It was chasing during the late 1990s and early 2000s. It was chasing the customer that sort of abandoned it. The kids were fascinated by digital games, et cetera. And so they did things which were sort of unheard of for LEGO at the time, which is the CEO and the founder going out and meeting face to face with kids and also adult fans of LEGO, which LEGO had always sort of kind of put down because of they only adult fans only accounted for about 5% of the company's market by the early 2000s. And yet those adult fans also outspent the average family by 20 to one. So they were the adult fans that also turned on LEGO because of the dumbed down products that LEGO was coming out with. So they merely made a lot of efforts to get back and try to reconnect with those adult fans, including taking for LEGO, which was quite an unheard of step at the time, actually starting to crowdsource ideas from LEGO fans. Another thing I think it was really funny that LEGO did a survey of its customers and one of the encouraging things that a found during those days with a LEGO kids were quote unquote normal. I mean, there was this worry that LEGO kids were geeks and they were very few of them. And they found that, yeah, you know, LEGO kids like to build a little bit more. They like to read a few more books in the average kids, but they love music. They love sports and importantly. They also love digital games as well. It wasn't an either or thing. In other words, LEGO was learning that some of its fears about the changing desires of kids were overblown. Just because electronic toys and video games were on the rise, didn't mean that kids had stopped wanting to build stuff with their hands. And all of that, validated knut stores driving instinct that LEGO needed to get back to the basics. Here's knut store speaking with an interviewer from BCG in 2017. The company was struggling because it did too many things at the same time. So it lost its focus on its sense of its core and what the capabilities were in that call. What was it really that this company did better than anybody else? And that really came down to a few things like creating this unique material that access if it was glued and yet is very easy to take apart. The company decided to bring back beloved old product lines, like LEGO city. And they killed off a bunch of toys that weren't authentic to the brand. They repaired their relationships with retailers. And they got a lot more disciplined about which new ideas they would pursue. And as Steve Jobs famously said, you know, innovation is saying no to a thousand ideas, a thousand different ideas. And LEGO has really exhibited this as well. I think we're LEGO got into trouble was it was trying to pursue and chase a lot of ideas all at once rather than figuring out a sequencing in a cadence to ideas, which is really important. So the long and the short of it is really, it's this combination of building the core out, understanding the sequencing and cadence for innovations. And then once you build that basic business, then trying sort of experiments so that you can winnow down a few things experiments that are worth investing in and then figuring out whether any of those are actually going to turn out to hit the trail before. By 2006, the crisis was mostly over. And LEGO had begun to reestablish itself as the world's hottest toy company. Between 2007 and 2011, the company grew at an average rate of 24% per year. Compared to just one, two or 3% per year for competitors like Mattel and Hasbro. In the rocket ship ride continued throughout the 2010s. Boosted by LEGO's hugely successful foray into Hollywood, with The Lego Movie in 2014. The Lego Batman Movie in 2017. And The Lego Movie two, the second part in 2019..

"The gottfried that breen is talking about was goat freed christiansen. The son of Lagos founder, Ole Kirk christiansen. It was on Godfrey's watch that LEGO had discovered how to make ABS bricks with high clutch power in the 1950s. And then went on to develop the whole LEGO system of play in the 1960s in 1979, the presidency of the company passed to goat fried sun, keeled Kirk Christensen, and killed added something important of his own. He came up with a probably LEGO's certainly LEGO's third greatest innovation, which is the minifig, and the many figures. And that's who was the product of a lot of experimentation, the first minifigs didn't have any faces. And even if you probably can go back and look at the original minifigs, they just have these sort of coal black eyes and smiles and that was it, but they eventually brought in variations on that with all kinds of vampires and weightlifters and cheerleaders and all different kinds of expressions. But that many of those minifigs brought in this notion of storytelling. That kids could do with the sets. And so LEGO expanded from just simply creating street scenes or tractors or gas stations or whatever or fire trucks to also telling stories around all those. And so that storytelling and narrative really also drove its sales as well. And LEGO retained that disciplined until we get to almost the late 1990s. One thing to understand is that by 1988, the last of Lagos patents on the interlocking brick concept had expired. And suddenly there were lots of toy companies around the world, making knock off construction toys. Up to that point, LEGO had been growing at sales at double digit rates every year. But between 1988 and 1993, sales leveled off and profits went into freefall. That led to a period of what you might call, frantic experimentation. Between 1994 and 1998, the company brought out at least 30 new product lines. Almost all of them were expensive failures. And in 1998, for the first time in its history, the company started losing money. Inside LEGO, there was a theory about what was going wrong. This is when digital gaming really came to the fore. We're talking about the late 1990s here. The humble brick wasn't so cool anymore. New competitors were coming up like leapfrog. And there was also this notion for the American market that American kids just didn't want to put a lot of time into building stuff. Neighbor two times squeeze two time was too compressed. And they had a lot of other distractions. LEGO was willing to try almost anything to become competitive again in this changing market. So killed, the grandson of the founder, voluntarily stepped aside as CEO. And for the first time, LEGO brought in a leader from outside the christiansen family. The new CEO doubled down on the product experimentation strategy. And he ended up pushing LEGO to build some products that were to put it charitably, very on LEGO like. The gentleman's name was Paul ploughman, the CEO, they brought him in to sort of try to turn around the organization. And I'm very leery of doing sort of Monday morning quarterback in which a lot of business books tend to do, which is to look back and say all the things they did wrong and everything. And I really try to put myself in his shoes. So he was incentivized to innovate. His bonus structure was built around that. That was his charter to innovate very quickly and to bring them back to profitable and double the sales growth of the very ambitious targets. And so they tried a lot of things and they both product wise in terms of launching a lot of products that were radically redesigned. Some of them didn't even have the brick of them. And a lot of sort of expensive ventures as well. They invested heavily in launching new legoland theme parks. Their ambition was to create one or two every year to try to create 300 LEGO stores. Another thing they did was they had this beloved sub brand for preschoolers called duplo. And it was a powerhouse for LEGO. And they did away with that brand and created something called LEGO explore. Some of which some of those lines of those toys had nothing to do with the break at all. They look more like something out of Fisher price. One thing that breen and Robertson make clear in the book is that ploughman wasn't being reckless. He was actually doing all the things that business schools teach leaders to do. He was bringing in lots of new people from diverse backgrounds to foster more creativity. He was exploring blue ocean markets and trying to extend the LEGO brand into new kinds of play experiences. He greenlighted entirely non brick related toys, like the galidor action figures, which the company promoted through a live action TV series for kids called galidor, defenders of the outer dimension. Something is attacking us. Ploughman was willing to get behind innovations like a galidor video game for the Game Boy Advance that would potentially disrupt Lagos traditional business, selling physical toys. The problem, as breen sees it, was that ploughman was in such a rush to return the company to profitability that he tried to do all of these things at once. They were a very busy company, but I don't know if it made for great business. And the result was sort of run away to certain degree uncontrolled innovation. Now, there was one thing that did go right, very early in plowman's tenure. A couple of years before plowman took over, Christensen had okay to licensing deal with LucasFilm to create LEGO Star Wars, a line of LEGO kits based on the spaceships and characters in the movies. In 1999, the studio released the first Star Wars prequel film. The Phantom Menace. The LEGO Star Wars kits came out at the same time, and they were an instant and massive hit with kids. They outpaced LEGO's own sales forecasts by 500%. Then the company repeated that success with a line of Harry Potter kits starting in 2001. But those successes turned out to be both a blessing and a curse. The revenue from the movie tie in kits was so extravagant that it wound up masking the fact that most of ploughman's other experiments were backfiring. Some of the products that they came out with if they had just taken some more time with them and brought them through some more and tested more rigorously. They might have had successes with them. Some of them just were not suitable at all for the market. And so what happened was they alienated a lot of the kids who really loved to build. This is the company's crown jewel. This is the break and what you can do with the break. And when they struggled, it was because they somehow tried to modify this crown jewel and tried to make these crown duel something different. This is Robert Rasmussen. He was at LEGO in the 1980s and 1990s. And today, he runs a training practice called LEGO serious play. And we're going to hear more from him toward the end of the episode. But I want to bring him in here because he makes an important point. Rasmussen thinks the main thing LEGO forgot during the ploughman years is that playing with LEGO bricks is supposed to be fun. But it's also supposed to be a little bit hard. I don't know if you are familiar with the concept called snap. They created a new construction system because the whole thing was that we need to make it faster for children to build. It was a disaster, right? And they also created an action figure called galidor. It was terrible right. And part of the point, and this is what came back onto the Seymour papert and his concept of hard fun. Things are more enjoyable and more learning when they're adequately difficult. Things are not fun if they're too easy, and if it's too hard, it's not fun either. So finding this balance between it's not too easy not too difficult, which is called hard fun. It's fun because it.

"Are several things that attracted me, but first of all, LEGO is such a great brand. It is also a brand that a lot of people know about, but they really don't know the company behind it. Because it's privately held, of course, Wall Street doesn't follow it. There have been some pieces written about it, of course, the toy industry trade writes about and follows it. My colleague, Charles fishman, a fast company, did an article about LEGO. But there hadn't really been certificate piece of work done on the company that stands behind this beloved toy. And that to me was just amazing because since the brick, the LEGO brick was patented in 1958, like LEGO had decades of unbroken sales growth. It was a sales and profit machine. And then starting in the late 1990s, it hit a real plateau. And then it spiraled. And the family that owns a company almost lost control of it. We've got so bad that LEGO was almost broken up into pieces and sold off. So that is a beloved brand that has this amazing sort of transformation or turnaround story behind it. And also, you know, there was the part that speaks to innovation, both product innovation in terms of what LEGO did with its product innovations that become LEGO and also within its management systems that it had to do to reinvent itself in order to transform itself into a company that really was fit for the 21st century. And so all of those things really combines to pique my interest in this project, even though I only really knew LEGO from stepping on it barefoot when my kids were playing on it with it. LEGO ouch. Despite the agony of the ouch, breen took on the book project. And over the next couple of years, he and Robertson made several pilgrimages to billund. That's the little town, three hours west of Copenhagen, where LEGO was founded in 1932, and where it still based today. Arriving in Bill and I will say was a little bit shocking. There's the legoland hotel, and of course the biggest features of the whole townscape are the legoland theme park with the castle turrets. But it's small. The town looks like a little LEGO streetscape with all these, you know, the houses are all basically the same. And they look all look very orderly and then there's the LEGO headquarters there, which is very colorful as you would imagine. And so the contrast between just brands name and the size of the town is just kind of stunning. And then, of course, on the outskirts, where all the factories that churn out millions and millions of bricks every year. And they are very impressive. They're like airline hangers. I mean, they're just gigantic and you've got to take a cart, so to speak is powered scooters and stuff. They're getting around them because it's just so big and they're so sprawling. Once breen and Robertson arrived in Bill and something happened to them that I've got to tell you, speaking as a fellow journalist, almost never happens. LEGO's executives knew that after the missteps of the early 2000s, the company had barely escaped destruction. And rather than climbing up out of fear or embarrassment, they actually wanted to talk about it. The point at which we started this work on this book, LEGO had already done the turnaround. It was quite successful at that point. And yet, the scars were very fresh from what it had endured. And I think they wanted to really capture that. And chronicle it. So that it would be kind of a warning to future years the future of LEGO to try to avoid something like this at all costs. So what had actually gone wrong at LEGO? Well, to understand that, first, you need to know a little more about what had been going right at LEGO. For decades, before the crisis hit. The story of the LEGO we know today really starts in the late 1950s. The brick just didn't magically happen overnight. I think there was a lot of persistence and grit around that. Starting with the fact that we did a lot of experiments and when they would click the two bricks together, it used to sort of just spring apart. You wouldn't click. The thing that really brings it together, they call it clutch power. That's what's LEGO calls it. And it's that clicking feeling that you get, which is very satisfying, but it's also the tub that you feel when you pull it apart and that's that tangible thing that it was just such a turn on for kids. And it was such a great invention. And the second great invention is this insight that LEGO had of creating a system of play, a holistic system with the brick as the centerpiece. So the genius of the break is partly that LEGO long before software came into being figured out backward compatibility. So a break from a new LEGO set would work with a brick from a set of 5 years. It was endlessly playable. And what also meant it was endlessly profitable. In the early 2000s, it cost around $50,000 to make a molding machine one point when you spread that across millions and millions of grip that bricks at almost amounts to zero. And so it was this notion of backward compatibility and the idea of a system of play where it just wasn't a one off product. But that it was a holistic system that you could build out from the brick. And I think those two things really sort of powered LEGO and its sales. But there's also a third thing and it gets back to the point I was trying to make about innovating inside the brick or thinking inside the box. And that is the sort of discipline the LEGO brought to this. So there's endless creative possibilities within playing within the brick itself. But LEGO was very disciplined about its protecting its system of play and not letting it get to what it had. LEGO was owned by three generations of leaders at three generations of leaders in the second generation owner, gottfried, the CEO, but personally review every new LEGO kit to ensure that there was a limited number of colors and there are limited number of shapes. So that there wasn't too much expansion and the system would be itself tightly bounded..

"You're listening to soonish. I'm wade rauch. So it's Saturday, February 26th, 2022. And I just got back from a long walk with my dog Griffin around the Charles river in Boston. There's a bunch of snow on the ground from a storm yesterday, and today is one of those severe clear days that can follow a big blizzard. It's so gorgeous outside that it's hard to keep in mind just how desperate things are in other parts of the world. It's day three of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And its day 700 and something of the coronavirus pandemic, and it feels like history just won't stop shifting. Right under our feet. So in a way, it's an odd day to be sharing a podcast about something as arguably frivolous as LEGO bricks. But hey, life goes on, right? If we lost sight of the importance of play, then we'd be letting the monsters win. So what I have for you today is part three of the persistent innovators. It's a mini series I've been guest producing in guest hosting for another podcast called innovation answered from the Boston based company in a lead. And yeah, this one is all about LEGO. The family owned company from Denmark feels just as omnipresent as Apple and Disney. The other two companies we've covered so far in this mini series. And clearly, LEGO is way more than just a system of plastic bricks. It's a huge global brand, with hundreds of retail stores, and ten theme parks in a franchise of blockbuster movies. And LEGO is not just for kids. Right here at home, I've got a LEGO Saturn 5 rocket made from 1969 pieces. And a LEGO space shuttle discovery with 2354 pieces. I also have a journalist friend named Maya weinstock, who designed a super cool LEGO kit called women of NASA. It came out in 2017 and it features minifigures of Nancy Grace Roman, Catherine Johnson, Margaret Hamilton, Sally Ride, and Mae jemison. So, as the LEGO fan community grows, and as LEGO itself enters its tenth decade, it's hard to imagine a world that's not littered with billions of colorful plastic LEGO bricks. But what most people don't realize is that less than two decades ago in 2003, the company came really close to going out of business. The point of this persistent innovator's miniseries is to understand how certain companies stay successful. Way past the age when you might expect them to stop innovating. But LEGO's challenge back in 2003 wasn't a lack of innovation. In a way, it was too much innovation. And how it got a handle on that problem, and bounced back from its near death experience, is the story you're about to hear. So, here's the full version, including ads and everything of innovation answered, season 6, episode.

"Like, well, thank you. problem that we then pair with a U creates this binary, even if we don't mean it, it almost creates a binary of like you're wrong and I'm right. And then the only way someone could respond is now if you've set up a you're wrong, I'm right now. You have to be wrong and I'm right, right? We don't want either. No one's wrong, and no one's right. No one's fault, right? There's just a problem we both see. There's a better outcome that we both want. So let's join together. And I think the more you say that, let's join together. Can you imagine if we each bring what we know, she's going to end the year in a way that's going to feel so good for her and probably is going to feel really good for us. Exactly. And I think when you put the two together, my stating a bit of a goal and trying to have a we type language that makes us feel like we're a team in this, and in the way that you kind of opened up and posed that question of how can we approach this together? Can we share this invited that yes and feeling in somebody that's going to make us want to drive this forward? I mean, I can't imagine a teacher that doesn't want that feeling that your valuing me and bringing an offer to support that and us to do this together. I mean, no teachers going to be sad about that. Great. I have another question that came in. So this is a question from someone who says my 7 year old is really advanced in math and I worry he's not getting the extra push he needs to stay engaged. I really don't want to come off as that parent who thinks their kid is just so amazing. My mom was a principal and she always talks about how self centered. And nagging so many parents were I don't want to be like that. But how can I get my kids need met in the classroom? Yeah, I've experienced the same thing as a family member of some different kids and thinking about, you know, it's that want to know how are you going to enrich my child's learning? I mean, when we think about the opportunity for students to have somewhat personalized learning, not to put a label on it, but you want your student to get what they need out of the learning and how can we ensure that happens. There's so many ways to do it. We, of course, talk a lot about purposeful play and opening up that playful situation, a project based lesson, an inquiry based lesson. That's going to allow students to drive in their own directions and naturally sort of differentiate. If your child is capable of driving further in the learning, they've got a pathway to do that because it's more open ended to allow that to happen. And I think that's a powerful piece that we try to capture with LEGO education all the time. We know learners enter at different places and are able to take it different directions. We want to see that diversity of ideas come out. We want to see that diversity of skills come out and allow students to do that. So one way is to kind of inquire and understand more about where are those open ended opportunities happening. I think it's also completely fair to ask what other enrichment opportunities happen in the school and what are ways.

"Stories on our website almost every single day? Go check it out at bedtime stories for kids, dot CO. Now, if you were ready for today's adventure, then I'm ready, Samuel. I hope that you are also ready. Can we all raise a right foot as high into the sky as we can, count down with me ever 5, four, three, two, one, let's go. It is evening time. And Samuel is getting ready for bed because he had an exciting day, but he is happy to go to sleep and get some rest because tomorrow is another day filled with adventure. Samuel's dad Stephen walks into the room and together they listen to an episode of bedtime stories for kids, and Samuel closes his eyes and falls into a deep, deep sleep. That morning, Samuel wakes up very early. I feel so rested. He says, as he gets out of bed, he opens the curtain and walks to the bathroom. When he notices something interesting. Am I seeing this correctly? He asks himself. Now, I must still be sleeping and he keeps unlocking down the hallway to the bathroom. When he opens the door and he immediately shots it again. What is happening? He says to himself, his bedroom, the bathroom, it is all completely made out of LEGO. He rushes downstairs to the kitchen where dad Stephen is cooking breakfast, eggs, dad asks. Sure. As dad serves two fried eggs on a plate made 100% out of Legos. Dad, what is going on at Samuel takes his seat and he notices that the chair the table. It is all completely made out of Legos. What do you mean? That says. Okay, oh nothing. Samuel says, as he finishes his breakfast and makes his way to school. The school bus is completely made out of Legos. The school building is not made out of bricks, but it's completely made out of LEGO. And at school, it is a very special day today because at school today, the kids are learning about farm animals. And a nearby farmer has agreed to take a few animals from the farm and bring them to school so that everybody can see the animals up close. So I have a question for you. Can you name a farm animal an animal that you will find on the farm? What animals do you find on the farm? We find cows, pigs, chicken, goat sheep, horses, also dogs, and cats, bunnies, there are many different types of animals that are living on the farm. So that morning, Samuel learns about the animals that live on the farm and he learns about them inside the classroom made completely out of Legos when in the afternoon it becomes time to go outside and meet the animals in person. And Samuel is super excited because he loves animals. And he loves learning about animals and he loves taking care of animals. And if his dad Stephen would allow him his house would be like a zoo, hundreds and hundreds of animals, but that's of course not possible. So Samuel walks outside, ready to see the animals up close when he gets to the animals. He then thinks to himself, okay. What is going on here? I have a LEGO bathroom LEGO chairs, LEGO table LEGO school bus, LEGO school, and now the animals are completely made out of Legos. Those are the real animals. They are LEGO animals. And they don't live on the farm. There are LEGO chickens that lay LEGO there is a LEGO dark that bark's Legos. There's also a LEGO cow that gives milk made out of Legos, white LEGO bricks. Samuel is very confused. He doesn't understand why today everything, and I mean, everything is made out of Legos. And as school is up, he goes home and he decides to take a nap. I'm so tired. I'm so confused. I don't need to rest. So question for you again. Do you think that Samuel's bed is completely made out of Legos as well? Of course. Samuel lays on his 100% made out of LEGO bed and he falls asleep. Hours, hours and hours later. Samuel wakes up very early. Wow, I feel so rested. He says, as he gets out of bed, opens the curtains and walks into the bathroom. He rushes downstairs to the kitchen where dad Stephen is cooking breakfast. Eggs that ask? Sure. As dad serves two fried eggs. And it is at that moment that Samuel realizes that his entire LEGO day, the LEGO animals, the LEGO, everything was nothing, but a dream. And with that, I'm gonna end today's episode, but.

It's on preorder now. And there's virtually nothing we know about in terms of specs and other features that we would normally spend probably this whole podcast talking about then. There's the other side of it. Which is the name freedom. Phone and its tagline is that it will prioritize free speech and privacy above anything else. It's backed by a self-proclaimed. Bitcoin millionaire named eric feynman he's funding the phone and he claims that it's freedom. Oso's ios or android will protect your privacy and that the app store is uncensored unsinkable.

What will happen now that they realize that it didn't fix whatever they thought it would fix inside them. Now i'll section one of the magazine as we open up is toys and games section this lego handgun story James no cases. Have you been following this. yeah. I'm a big fan of toys as alice and of guns When did toys. So what's happened is a utah. Company has stopped selling a likud sets that were glock handguns in particular The danish toymaker lego Very upset by this. They're not big on guns and they don't think that's what lego should be used for So the kids were actually quite expensive though about five hundred fifty. Seven hundred and fifty. Us which is a real investment like he could probably just by a gun for cheaper but this is the thing so somebody who is completely off the planet enough to want to dress up. The glock as lego is probably off the planet enough not to bulk at the ticket price. I mean there should be some buried entry. I feel like they've misunderstood like american police. Like if you have a stick. That looks like a gun. They're probably gonna shoot. I think if you've got a gun you're like all no it's like they're still going to shoot you. That's not really the not renowned for being tactful. So you think it's a matter of disguise. I think it's a matter of like flashing us. I think of this is like putting diamonds on your teeth trying to pretend that they're not teeth. You're just trying to jazz them up. I mean the problem. Is that when sorry. More people who talk on the teeth. That's what it was the other medical thing on the problem with guns. Most guns obviously is that when you run out of bullets. There's not much that the weapon can do as a weapon off to that. In the absence of bayonet this is the solution. Fire the gun and then leave it on the floor at midnight for someone to stab the shit out of their feet on the deadly weapon and a minor inconvenience. What more could you want. I think this is the difference between out. two upbringings. Alice is that there was no way that i was seeing the story and going. Oh they're trying to be more gangsta but then when you present it like a dozen utah anyone's gonna go. Let's make it more jazzy. Lego it's the moments only something about this story just really clicked for me. That's that's basically what i have. I thought i thought i do. I think is a reasonable start which unprepared to build on and able to of course because of the interlock system that leg-up presents muddle problem with a model solution.

One really but i would say the. The epiphany seminal moment was when she was not not quite four. She wanted to add lights to one of her. Lego sets and so i taught her some very basic soldering and circuit. She was really very self motivated to want to add the lights. She didn't care really wish you had to learn to get there so rather than sort of at least from my days in school it was more about. You know doing like one hundred math problems and not really nine why this was sort of a poll.
