LEGO® sets were once considered toys for little boys and the business came extremely close to bankruptcy in the early 2000s. In recent years, LEGO® has seen its largest growth from girls and adults while creating successful brand partnerships with Batman™, Disney™, Harry Potter™, Jurassic World™, Marvel, Minecraft®, and Star Wars™. With sets ranging from $10 to the $850 Millennium Falcon™, LEGO® sparks creativity and allows people of all ages to build amazing creations. So how is building with LEGO® bricks like working in the Salesforce ecosystem? Let’s take look at five unique similarities between the two.
Like LEGO® bricks that allow you to bring your vision to life, Salesforce provides endless possibilities for customizations to help businesses connect with customers and accelerate their growth. With products supporting business processes across multiple industries and the ability to customize these applications, Salesforce allows administrators and developers to create solutions specifically tailored to unique business needs.
If you have ever watched a child play with LEGO® sets, you may have seen the child work to improve upon what they have already built. These moments, in combination with their excitement to show you their new build, helps make memories that last a lifetime. Working in the Salesforce ecosystem, the focus on continuous improvement is all around us. From Trailblazers leveling up on the trailhead to True to the Core, those working in the Salesforce ecosystem are focused on driving improvements every day with creativity and innovative solutions.
Building for Scale
Building large, sturdy structures with LEGO® bricks is not just for LEGO® Masters. Simple building tricks such as interconnecting bricks or bracing, can help you build stronger connections to support the growth of your structures. Similarly, designing for growth and scale are critical components of the development and optimization of any Salesforce implementation. Whether you are a start-up or a 50-year-old company, Salesforce provides the capabilities to continue to scale your processes as they evolve and mature.
Importance of Interconnectivity
LEGO® bricks connect with other LEGO® bricks to create amazing builds with a common purpose - to visualize the builder's creative intent. Similarly, interconnectivity is a critical component of a Salesforce implementation. Understanding complex business processes and developing solutions which share information across business functions, requires administrators and developers to understand how each Salesforce “brick” interacts with each other to ensure the solution delivers on the strategic intent.
LEGO® is a brand of fun for millions of people across the world. Though people may not think of fun immediately when they hear the word Salesforce, people working in the ecosystem have and know how to have fun. Dreamforce ‘22 is a perfect example of fun combined with the seriousness of delivering true value to each of our stakeholders. At MXA Solutions, we continue to grow our team with people who are fun to work with and we enjoy having fun with our clients as we develop scalable solutions that enable businesses to accelerate growth. We believe Dale Carnegie was spot on when he said, “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”
