A good IP strategy ensures your commercial goals are kept to the fore. It also provides a framework to work within when you’re deciding which IP rights to secure and where to spend your money.
An IP strategy allows you to understand, manage and capitalise on the IP in your organisation. It can also help you win more market share, secure higher prices or ensure lower costs than your competitors. A clear strategy also answers the day-to-day questions most organisations face around what to do about IP.
IP is critical to modern businesses and a mix of IP rights is usually the best way to build real value in your intangible asset base. This does not happen without careful thought and planning.
Even if your business is not into intensive research and development programmes, it is important that you have processes for identifying the IP that you create and a strategy for protecting and capitalising on it.
How can AJ Park help me?
We offer a range of IP strategy services to suit your business and requirements. Each of the programmes listed below have built-in flexibility, but are based on research into learning techniques and delivery methods.
IP Game Plan™
This is a short training programme that gives you an opportunity to talk to IP experts about your business with the goal of working out a basic IP strategy. The aim is to give you the upfront information you need to develop your strategy, while also helping build your capability in using IP as a business tool.
The programme is designed for individuals, start-ups and SMEs, but is equally useful for larger organisations wanting to better understand the role IP plays in their organisation.

AJ Park has been appointed to the Callaghan Innovations Beyond IP panel. As part of this appointment, the AJ Park team, lead by Grace Thomas-Edmond, Anton Blijlevens and Anton Gibson, help businesses develop and implement their intangible asset strategy. The 12 month programme is partially funded and is aimed to upskill and transfer knowledge to participants. This will allow them to continue developing their intangible asset strategy and make better decisions around the management of these assets.
Intangible assets make up a large amount of a modern businesses value and go beyond innovations you can patent or brands you protect through trade marks. That’s why it’s important to have a clear intangible asset strategy that enables businesses to identify and manage all their intangible assets to maximise the value those assets can create in the business.
