Innovation Interview: Judy Kratzner

What is innovation?

Innovation is making connections to create something new.  Generally innovation addresses a problem in a new way or shares feelings and ideas in a new way.

How is innovation part of your life?

Innovation gives my life zest. I am a circular thinker. I hold a great deal of information in my head and I massage it in spurts. I try to capture what I consider a need, toy with different means to meet that need and look for bate to put on a hook to bring in resources and support. These resources then provide action to address the need.

Who (or what organizations) do you admire for innovation?

I am a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright. He was innovative in multiple mediums and the result is such beauty. He was also a master at staging his innovations- and himself.
