BUSINESS-DRIVEN IP MANAGEMENT


TYPICAL CLIENT CHALLENGES

 
  • No one in the company can provide a business rationale why we need 0, 100, or 1000 new patent filings per year.
  • Patenting is inventor-driven rather than goal-driven; there is no planned use for each patent to generate return on investment.
  • The business environment is changing, accelerated by digitalization, with more IP-advanced and offensive players.
 

‘Business-driven IP management’ means being able to perform all IP-related activities in a way which is proactive, strategy-driven, and business impact-oriented. We design, drive and support transformations to Business-driven IP management to increase the financial returns from intellectual property. Our team cooperates at all levels of the client’s organization throughout all phases in strategy, performance improvement and transformation.
