Corporations often have business and marketing strategies,
but rarely do they have intellectual property strategies. While a
business strategy can defi ne overall strategy and a marketing
strategy provides marketing goals and budgets; an IP Strategy
maps out your intellectual property and intangible assets and
defi nes which assets best generate revenues and profi ts.
Completion and execution of an IP Strategy can increase
profi t margins and serve as a guide to executing successful
licensing and brand extension transactions. Ultimately, an
IP Strategy is integrated with your business strategy to
identify how your IP is growing your business; and with
your marketing strategy to analyze how your marketing
spend is adding to the value of your organization.
