Lynn Ellsworth Taylor (INSERT PICTURE) developed the CVI™
. Taylor owns Taylor Protocols, Inc., a professional
business and human capital management firm in Seattle, Washington.
He developed the CVI™ out of his need to hire the right
people for the right jobs. He wanted to better understand, manage,
train, coach and motivate the people he was serving (Taylor,
As most great inventions are, it was a progression; slowly
growing with technological knowledge over time. In the early 1980's
Taylor worked with Dr. Ed Geiger to develop the first non-invasive
cardiac output computer. This work required Taylor to help create
algorithms for pattern matching. In 1983, Taylor applied his
algorithm knowledge to speech technology, creating the first IBM
PC-compatible speech recognition system. Using the knowledge he
gained from the previous projects Taylor set off on a 15-year quest
to perfect an instrument that could accurately measure the innate,
unchanging Core Values Nature™, which resulted in the Core Values
After working to design the first non-invasive cardiac output
computer and the speech recognition technology he ventured into
working in corporate world helping struggling companies become more
successful. He knew that it was vitally important to assess each
person's core values so that they could be matched with the proper
job in the company. As he searched for a tool to assess people at
their deepest level, he became frustrated with all the tests on the
market. They claimed to improve hiring and give insight into
someone's personality. Taylor knew he needed to go deeper than
personality. By 1992 Taylor had developed the CVI™ in order
go below the adapted personality and into the unchanging stable
self. In 1998 he began using the CVI™ in combination with his
diagnostic algorithms to administer a system that allowed him to
assess the top performers in companies he is hired to help. Using
the technology he created he is able to place people in the right
seats, raising productivity significantly.
