Holistic Patent Strategy - an article that may be of interest

Implement a Holistic Patent Strategy for Maximum Value

"Among different types of intellectual property (IP), patents offer the most potential for value; correspondingly, organizations have started to devise patent strategies to create, protect and exploit IP (in the form of patents and patent portfolios) for business benefit. At the core of patent strategy is the ability to define and understand the value contained in the IP, in the form of value determinants. These value determinants cover multiple dimensions of IP value – alignment with organizational needs and strategy, how good the patent/patent portfolio is, opportunity window and customer value. Viewing and analyzing these elements together offers a holistic view of IP value paving the way toward the creation of a comprehensive, structured and informed patent strategy."
