Client "A" - Resource Shortage

NEED: A fifteen person design firm wanted to take on a new customer but didn't have the internal resources available to commit to the project.  They were at risk of having to pass up the new project.
ACTION:  Kolb Consultants supplemented their design and engineering resources until internal personnel were available to pick up the project
IMPACT:  The client gained a new customer and grew their business without hiring permanent staff.

Client "C" - A Little Guidance

NEED:  A large pharmaceutical company wanted to develop a medical device but wasn't sure how the process differed from drug development.
ACTION:  Kolb Consultants worked closely with the client's internal team to create development plans, testing protocols and a quality system appropriate for the proposed device.
IMPACT:  The client entered a new market quickly and without making expensive (time and money) "first-timer" errors along the  way.

Client "B" - The Inventor

NEED:  A surgeon inventor had spent several years making prototypes, filing patent applications and presenting his idea to industry, but he didn't seem to be getting any closer to making the product a clinical reality  And all this effort was getting expensive.

ACTION:  Kolb Consultants worked with the physician to develop a business plan, refine the product design, make prototypes and obtain a grant to support additional development work.

IMPACT:  The surgeon's "idea" is now a viable business opportunity.
