In today’s turbulent global economy, companies establish competitive advantage by creating the most exciting ideas and taking them to market. To sustain this competitive advantage and thrive long term, innovative companies must use intellectual property to protect their valuable ideas. iProperty explores the intellectual property strategies and tactics used by successful companies to protect ideas. It answers the question, "If I’m serious about strategically deploying intellectual property in a way that benefits my bottom line, what should I do on Monday morning to make that happen?" Too often, books dealing with strategy remain high-level and vague, while intellectual property books frequently bog the reader down in the intricacies of patent laws and regulations. Avoiding these extremes, iProperty emphasizes the concrete details involved in actual implementation and provides executives, managers and attorneys with practical advice for developing and executing a strategic intellectual property plan that will yield a measurable return on investment.

Built to Thrive is about unpacking the drivers that I have noticed in the landscape that do not yet have a place in our existing vocabulary. It is about ceasing to ignore the signs and beginning to embrace the changes that are becoming more tangible with every day that passes. It is about recognizing the amplified importance of the human as a social being in this dawning age of transparency and systemic activity. The individual becomes the collective as we move into a sphere of shared value-creation, ideation and knowledge dissemination. Existing in this new business landscape is not about eliminating the competition, but rather working together in a bid to share resources and expand far beyond what we could ever hope to achieve as individual organizations. Through Built to Thrive, I hope to open your mind and introduce you to a way of thinking that will fundamentally shift your views, and may provide a lifeline in a world where the new school will rule.

Nothing is more important to business success than innovation . . . And here’s what you can do about it on Monday morning with the definitive how-to book from the world’s leading authority on innovation When it comes to innovation, Curt Carlson and Bill Wilmot of SRI International know what they are talking about—literally. SRI has pioneered innovations that day in and day out are part of the fabric of your life, such as: •The computer mouse and the personal computer interface you use at home and work •The high-definition television in your living room •The unusual numbers at the bottom of your checks that enable your bank to maintain your account balance correctly •The speech-recognition system used by your financial services firm when you call for your account balance or to make a transaction. Each of these innovations—and literally hundreds of others—created new value for customers. And that’s the central message of this book. Innovation is not about inventing clever gadgets or just “creativity.” It is the successful creation and delivery of a new or improved product or service that provides value for your customer and sustained profit for your organization. The first black-and-white television, for example, was just an interesting, cool invention until David Sarnoff created an innovation—a network—that delivered programming to an audience. The genius of this book is that it provides the “how” of innovation. It makes innovation practical by getting two groups who are often disconnected—the managers who make decisions and the people on the front lines who create the innovations—onto the same page. Instead of smart people grousing about the executive suite not recognizing a good idea if they tripped over it and the folks on the top floor wondering whether the people doing the complaining have an understanding of market realities, Carlson and Wilmot’s five disciplines of innovation focus attention where it should be: on the creation of valuable new products and services that meet customer needs. Innovation is not just for the “lone genius in the garage” but for you and everyone in your enterprise. Carlson and Wilmot provide a systematic way to make innovation practical, one intimately tied to the way things get done in your business. Teamwork isn't enough; Creativity isn't enough; A new product idea isn't enough True innovation is about delivering value to customers. Innovation reveals the value-creating processes used by SRI International, the organization behind the computer mouse, robotic surgery, and the domain names .com, .org, and .gov. Curt Carlson and Bill Wilmot show you how to use these practical, tested processes to create great customer value for your organization. From the Hardcover edition.

Roche (Supreme Court 2011), Prometheus (Supreme Court 2012), Nautilus (Supreme Court 2014), and Limelight (Fed. Cir. 2015).
