At the core of all our activities and client offers is the analysis and management of intellectual assets –the intangible assets controlled by a firm or organization which have direct or indirect impact on productivity and profitability. We are firm believers that capabilities relating to managing, governing and utilizing intellectual assets such as databases, theoretical frameworks, technical solutions and instructions are pivotal for success in today’s and tomorrow’s increasingly knowledge- and technology-centric business environment.
The fundamental challenge of intellectual asset management stems from the elusive and diffuse nature of knowledge; what is not clearly defined, is difficult to communicate and manage. We approach this challenge through a systematic and rigorous methodology for defining, describing and assessing knowledge and intangibles as objects. As a result, we are able to create highly granular inventories of the intellectual assets within a certain portfolio. Our methodology for intellectual asset management is developed to enable systematic, cross-functional and high-resolution identification, control and governance of key intellectual assets in sourcing, development, collaboration, and exploitation.
Our intellectual asset management and strategy services range from providing IAM-based decision-making support in relation to specific business challenges of high importance, to supporting clients building their own internal IAM capability.
