Bioclaris enabled our employees to re-frame their approach to a critically important challenge our company was facing. Their method resulted in a significant increase in effectiveness in resolving this challenge as well as a new level of employee engagement with our company's objectives. I strongly recommend executives interested in realizing similar results to contact Bioclaris.

Tec is tearing it up! We’ve just had a record Quarter, doubling historic sales, and appear to be on track for +15% in 2012! That’s on the tail of increases in 2011 of 11% and 18% in 2010. So the challenge of doubling sales in 5 years is well ahead of plan, which is quite amazing. Many thanks to Bioclaris! By using Bioclaris we figured out how to move to Tecnu First Aid Gel with relative ease. It makes me think that any problem is solvable when we access the group's IQ through the methods from Bioclaris — doubling revenues means rapid growth. To get ready, we rolled out Bioclaris training company-wide. We "challenged" each functional team. The results were remarkable; good ideas flowed from every quarter of the company, ideas to handle our anticipated growth. Several other positives that we are experiencing with Bioclaris included:
- The method allowed mature, cohesive teams to think more effectively. And helped nurture new and less unified teams to grow in empathy and understanding.
- Bioclaris allowed the introverts and the extroverts to problem solve in an orderly fashion without fear, judgment or worry about expressing themselves.
- The simplest ideas can literally transform an enterprise! Employees now say they are heard. Ideas are embraced – not overlooked by the company.

Willamette Life Sciences Collaborative (WLSC) grew from a Bioclaris facilitation in October 2010. Extraordinarily effective, the method was essential to kick-starting the collaborative. Two days of interactive meetings yielded 60+ new product ideas for WLSC members. Enough to fuel this high-powered collaborative quickly and for many years! More importantly, the WLSC leadership team gained insights and creative ideas on how best to function as innovators of this business alliance. What we didn't anticipate, was how truly valuable the Bioclaris Methodology™ would continue to be to our members and the WLSC. This is especially so as we move through the challenges of incorporating diverse organizational cultures. In short, Bioclaris helped us map a way forward that includes genuine partnering and enables WLSC to focus on higher common-purpose priorities. Thank you Bioclaris!

Bioclaris inspired the Tiba Medical team at a time when fresh ideas were eluding us. Our company challenge: kick start the next phase of growth. With Bioclaris, Tiba managers developed clear priorities that delivered sound decisions and quickly moved us forward. Then we sold the company!

The Bioclaris method (encourages thinking out of the box) is impressive and I want to share a recent experience. On this occasion we used Bioclaris to brainstorm microbiology models. The process was exceptionally beneficial to our organization. We discovered how to apply new problem-solving techniques in a meeting format that sparked dozens of new ideas, through a well-defined formula, one that promotes good listening. To my amazement fresh ideas seemed to be compounding during the meeting, especially as the program unfolded. I favorably recommend Bioclaris as a resource to support effective business expansion.

Corporate challenge; Increase the yield for an important separator product.Picture an engineering group. Pros steeped in traditions of doing things the right way. Over eleven months my team had documented nine distinct approaches to solving this significant technical challenge and none had worked out. Two years ago we incorporated Bioclaris into routine problem-solving meetings. The tools were easy. This made it possible for each team member to rapidly change their approach on how they solved problems. Attitudes and productivity have soared, and they keep getting better at it! I highly recommend executives interested in realizing similar results to contact Bioclaris.
