Event Synopsis:
A strongly managed patent portfolio can make a significant improvement to a company’s performance. However, in most companies only 3-5% of any portfolio is actually used. Having a good plan for the management, development and use of your portfolio can help realise more of the portfolio’s value. However this requires coherent business thinking between technology, legal and business functions.

In this two-hour Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished IP strategists assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer the audience with an in-depth discussion of how to improve a company’s bottom line through effective portfolio management. The panel will review portfolio management fundamentals as well as discuss the impact of current patent issues on portfolio strategy. The speakers will also provide the audience with best practices and practicalities in effective and efficient patent portfolio management.

Key topics include:

− Aligning a patent portfolio with business objectives
− How to evaluate a portfolio’s strengths and weaknesses
− Organising and structuring a portfolio
− Portfolio metrics
− Addressing portfolio deficiencies
− Managing portfolio expenses
− Recent regulatory developments and their impact on portfolio management
