Researcharya Webinar on Return on Investment in Patents (ROIP)

Date of next webinar to be announced soon ..

While companies are continuously moving at rapid pace in this competitive economy to succeed, ResearchArya recommends you to take a break from your everyday, scantily, moderately, or maybe sometimes unplanned, voyage towards achievement of goals and targets in your business.

You may think why? The answer is simple. Surprisingly, the answer comes from introspection.

Ask yourself am I doing, thinking, or learning something new in everything that I do or am I merely reinventing the wheel?

If the answer is NO, pull up your socks because today’s economy is knowledge or innovation based. Having said that, there has to be some newness, novelty and non-obviousness in everything you do as that is a clear indication of your uninformed awareness and automatic or inherent mindset, and that fortunately has an immense impact on realization of Intellectual Property (IP) assets that definitely in the long or short run will fetch you Return On Investment (ROI).

Come to us and we will let you know HOW

Perhaps, two significant points that are noteworthy are informed awareness andpositive mindset towards consideration and management of Intellectual Property (IP) assets that you may be unknowingly generating in your everyday business.

Many businesses may out rightly reject this very idea of informed awareness and positive mindset in connection with costs, benefits and ROI from Intellectual Property (IP) assets. The root cause is in widely or unanimously accepted strategies and mechanics of doing business in India or most of the developing economies.

Here’s what ResearchArya has to offer you…

Return on Investment (ROI) is a common investment analysis metric that measures the return or gain on an investment against the original cost of the investment.

Likewise, Return on investment in patents (ROIP) is an investment analysis metric that measures the return or gain on an investment against the original cost of the investment, but specifically applied to patents.

Having said all of that, overall or long-term ROIP measures the return on investment in connection with implementation of a complete IP Aware or IP Guided Intellectual Property Development Life Cycle (IPDLC) including, but not limited to, design and implementation of strategies and mechanics of research, analysis, drafting, filing and prosecuting one or more patent and trademark applications, maintaining and holding one or more granted patents/trademarks, licensing-in and –out the granted patents/trademarks, building a portfolio of patents and trademarks, for a given desired payback period of time.

Specifically, a positive annual ROIP would mean that dollars generated from having a patent exceeded dollars spent on filing, maintaining, and holding the patent for a 365 day period. Conversely, a negative annual ROIP would mean that the cost associated with filing, maintaining, and holding a patent exceeded the revenue generated by holding said patent for a 365 day period.

Mind you this an entirely new concept, and we are here to answer queries such as “Who,?” “Why,?” “How,?” “When,?” “Where?” and “What?” that may spontaneously generate as sparks in your minds…

Broadcasting ResearchAryas' Lean Patent Development Life Cycle (PDLC)

ResearchArya wishes to report completion of a whitepaper on ResearchArya's proprietary Lean Patent Development Lifecycle (PDLC)

So, in a nutshell "what is Lean PDLC?"

ResearchArya’s (RA’s) Lean PDLC comprises multiple distinct phases involved in the development of Patents. To be more precise, the Lean PDLC comprises the following multiple phases

  • Lean (or tailored) Requirements Determination Phase
  • Lean Initial Requirements Specifications Phase
  • Lean Feasibility Analysis Phase
  • Lean Budget and Scheduling Phase
  • Lean Planning Phase, such as Defensive, Offensive and Hybrid Patent Programming
  • Lean Implementation Phase
  • Lean Review Phase
  • Lean Quality Testing Phase and the like. 

The Lean PDLC is based on a multidimensional approach to managing IP problems. The Lean PDLC facilitates completion of each phase in the most efficient manner, whilst still requiring minimal investment of input resources, wherein each of the concerned or instant phases is separately subjected to economic feasibility analysis thereby facilitating a balanced trade-off between inputs, processes, outputs thereof, and investment and ROI therefor. 

Each phase in the Lean PDLC is modifiable adaptively (as per need) and/or dynamically (as and when) to most optimally suit both the demanded or requested input requirements and the desired output requirements in connection with the concerned phase. 

In addition, RA’s Lean PDLC also comprises design and implementation of IP-guided or –aware Patent Development Lifecycle.
