by | Apr 18, 2022 | Inside the Box Innovation, Podcast | 0 comments

I always say “think inside the box.” However, this week, I want you to instead think inside the skyscraper!

We’re going to take a little trip to the world’s tallest building and see what we can learn about creativity from it.

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Dubai and visit the world’s tallest building. I even went to the very top floor. That caused me to reflect on all skyscrapers have to teach us regarding creativity and creative patterns. Today, I want to share some of the lessons I learned.


In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. How skyscrapers make use of the multiplication technique of innovation.
  2. Where we find the division technique in skyscrapers.
  3. How the tallest building in the world uses the task unification technique.
  4. What pattern spotting is.
  5. How attribute dependency is in skyscrapers.
  6. The benefits of all of these innovative techniques.
