TRIZ and Intellectual Property Management
- 764 Downloads
The capability to manage Intellectual Property is becoming essential, especially for SMEs that actively try to face competition of emerging countries and Far East (China, India, etc.). Whether a company is a small, mid, or large one, a strong intellectual property portfolio will provide the company with the ability to become a more effective competitor and enhance shareholder value. Nevertheless, some aspects are often neglected, such as the importance of patents, not only as a legal protection from unauthorized copying of inventions, but also as a tool for the innovation of both product and process. Establishing a strategy for Intellectual Property Management is important for every company that uses technology to secure a significant competitive advantage. In such a context, methodologies and tools for systematic innovation, such as TRIZ, can help to deal with specific issues of Intellectual Property Management (IPM) and are key issues to systematically innovate product/process/service. These themes are really actual and are attracting more and more interest from both industrial and academic communities.
