Peter Drucker identified the information that executives truly need more than twenty years ago. Knowing that this type of information is available in patents is the easy part. Extracting the information in a usable format and reporting it in a timely manner is completely another story. It is often easier said than done.

You are invited to attend the upcoming Riser IP workshop @ the 2018 Annual PIUG conference to discuss best practices in extracting the four types of information that Senior Management really wants from patents. Briefly they are 1) Internal data and scarce resource allocation information 2) Productivity measurements (external benchmarking) 3) Competence assessments and 4) Information on potential opportunities, risk mitigation and emerging technologies.


Peter Drucker was absolutely right about his definition of information: "What is important is not the tools. It is the concepts behind them. ..... That is a new and radically different view of the meaning and purpose of information: as a measurement on which to base future action rather than as a postmortem and a record of what has already happened."
