Innovation Cultivator, Consultant and Connector
- We need to be careful not to attach the term “innovation” to everything because honestly, it is currently a trend. However, we cannot in any way discount its importance to the viability and longevity of an organization.
- Innovation cannot be something we do or a phase or a goal, it has to be a part of the company culture.
- Innovation is not just about ideas…it is about a way of thinking and being; it is a language and a process; it requires flexibility and follow-through, creativity and structure; and it is more complex than we realize.
- To be innovative is to be thinking of the future while taking action today. We learn and move on — already knowing what we are moving onto.
About the Author, Kaylee Kolditz
With 18 years of marketing and business development experience, I have worked with companies large and small across a variety of industries, but I get the most energy and joy from working with product development organizations. In my current role, I help product organizations identify and access the resources (trainings, publications, groups, events) to cultivate a culture of innovation. I also help folks network online and in person, and manage an online community and conference for innovation in product development.
Goals: I’d like to connect with companies in the NYC area interested in looking at the gaps in their innovation culture and putting a plan in place to cultivate a culture of innovation throughout their organization.
