    Build a Successful Patent Strategy at Hannover - the Art of War

    Sun Tzu, the Chinese military strategist, philosopher and warrior died centuries before companies started to protect their innovation with intellectual property. But the ideas outlined in his classic manual “The Art of War” are surprisingly applicable when creating a patent strategy. As Sun Tzu stated, "if you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles".

    Does your company maintain patents that lost their purpose?

    The patent “big data challenges”

    How to support an entire society. As long as I can remember, national, regional and local patent conferences, seminars, training concepts and various services has had a strong focus on issues like; what is a patent, what right does a patent provide, what kind of invention can be protected, do I need a patent attorney to prepare and file a patent application, is a patent valid in every country, what happens if I forget to pay the yearly patent fee, etc. Obviously relevant and constantly current issues, but also a very narrow focus that has contributed to the widespread knowledge gap that exists today, especially among smaller companies.

    Change is inevitable, survival is optional

    One of my favorite quotes is by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus (who lived around 500 BC) and it goes something like this: "The only thing constant in life is change". I still agree with Heraclitus philosophical thoughts but if I were to apply it to the 21:st century business world, I would have altered the quote to: "The only thing constant in Business is change".

    Do I need to invent the light bulb to become an inventor?

    The history of technology is, in many ways, a story of great inventors and their brilliant inventions. Think of Thomas Edison and the light bulb, with protection type patent that was filed 1879. Inventing isn't just about coming up with a great idea; that's the easy part! There's also the matter of turning an idea into a product and stopping other people from copying and profiting from your ideas. One way to protect your idea is to patent it but unfortunately many R&D engineers today do not see themselves as inventors unless they invent the light bulb. Therefore, many features related to products are not protected.

    Bring Innovation Back from the future

    On one of my recent travels I came across a short article in an airline magazine, briefly listing the many innovations predicted in the mid 80’s film series “Back to the Future”. Many of these innovative predictions have been or are about to be realized. They are very much part of our present day life, such as the hover-board, flying cars, smart watches, 3D movie technology, fingerprint ID, giant flat screen TV, and more. Other predictions of the movie were complete misses such as a fax machine built in the wall.

    Can my R&D staff be more innovative?

    In most of my meetings with clients I hear phrases like “can you expect your personnel to invent” or “nothing is patentable according to my staff”. This reminds me of the movie Modern Times with Charlie Chaplin, whose job it is to tighten bolts on an endless series of machine parts − he is a small cog in the factory exploiting their workers. The key to successful nut-tightening is to perform his movements and tasks with clock-like tempo and precision. Still today, the environment is like that for R&D engineers in many “modern” companies. And you expect them to be innovative?

Of course I replied enthusiastically! Then he said – but I need you to keep it short and understandable so that everyone else can benefit from your advice…
