Risks related to IP overlapping areas between key players in the industrial chain. Patents likely to hinder / block freedom to operate. Workarounds. Capture new value on the chain (customer /supplier) through the creation of IP. Strengthen IP positioning through patent acquisition
Perform an IP swot analysis and definition of an IP roadmap to develop new value.
The IP roadmap follows on from the SWOT analysis. A list of planned IP actions will be proposed. Creation, workarounds, destruction, acquisition, license … Suggested performance indicators.
A value creation objective is planned for each IP right held, planned, or planned for acquisition
