About this book

This work examines the current, relevant and complex problem of how companies can take an intellectual property lead within research and development collaborations. Special emphasis is placed on the early phases of the innovation process and the service industry sector in which intellectual property management is still a new phenomenon. The author derives archetypes for managing intellectual property in collaborations and analyses their strengths and weaknesses. The findings of the book are based on a series of interviews with companies in a variety of industries and regions, as well as on a detailed examination of the service companies IBM, SAP, Swisscom and SwissRe. The author offers organizational and managerial recommendations based both on his extensive industry background and on scientifically induced hypotheses, and has thus written a book of interest to both scientists and practitioners.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book of about two hundred and seventy pages examines the complex and challenging problem of how companies can take an intellectual property lead within research and development (R&D) collaborations. … He compiled a typology for managing intellectual property in R&D collaborations which is deemed to be very useful for the reader. … Bader’s book in my view is a must for both practitioners and scientists dealing with or being interested in R&D collaborations." (Christian Heush, Licensing Executives Society, December, 2006)

"The book makes a valuable addition to the study of IP management, which can be usefully read by both academics and practitioners. For the former it provides an academic study informed by practical experience and for the latter an academic approach to interpreting practice. The book has 297 pages comprising eight chapters and an executive summary. … if you are interested in IP management and service industry R&D collaboration, you should read this book." (Robert H. Pitkethly, R&D Management, Vol. 37 (5), 2007)
