What is Business-Driven IP Management?

A common concern among technology company executives – often driven by digitalization – is the lack of a convincing strategy for how to navigate the evolving IP landscape, and of a business rationale for the money spent on intellectual property. Conversely, IP functions commonly find themselves in an isolated organizational position with low executive management attention, and with limited insight both into the strategic direction of the company and the business value potential of the IP portfolio.

We help companies evolve from this situation, by setting strategic direction and upgrading the IP function from a reactive support operation to a proactive business partner. We analyze, design, and help transform the client's approach to IP to become proactive and strategy-driven, close to the core, and focused on achieving desired business outcomes. We call this business-driven IP management.
