IP Master Class: Using Patents to Predict Success & Steer Portfolio Directions

July 12, 2005

Proprietary indicators and economic modeling of patent portfolios have been successfully used to predict stock market success for many years. Understandably, these same techniques correlate well with and are useful in predicting success in the commercial marketplace. This presentation discusses how this approach can also be applied to position a company's patent portfolio to conform with and support the company's technology strengths. The techniques discussed enable businesses to identify intellectual property value, increase performance and leverage intellectual property opportunities. A series of examples will be discussed to illustrate how such analytical findings are being used by companies to manage their IP assets and create economically significant patent portfolios.
