Targeted invention instead of accidental innovation?
Receiving many invention reports is the best thing for any IP manager.
If the quality and the economic relevance of the invention reports are also outstanding, an ideal state is reached. In practice, invention reports now and then lack quantity or quality or – both!
With all the experience, this is not the result of a lack of creative ability of the engineers and technicians but a consequence of the lack of space and time to deal with innovations in a structured way.
Daily business always comes first.
Workshops for targeted invention and innovation can be a help here.
On the one hand, the key to success lies in methods for creating a creative, technically focused atmosphere within a timely framework, on the other hand, in the structured development of ideas through to ingenuity.
These inventions are then directly researched in the context of the workshop for patent novelty and tailored to economic relevance.
Together with its partner Tom Spike®, Serviva offers patent-creative workshops on innovation management and patenting topics at its locations in Berlin and Stuttgart, which combine these advantages for the customers.
The practice-oriented perspective of the companies is taken into account through intensive preparation.
Both theoretical and methodological aspects, as well as practical topics, are prepared on an application-specific basis and underpinned by exercises that require the active participation of the participants in order to “unlock” their technical and economic creative sides.
The inventions are laid down in a structured manner.
The Serviva researchers determine the relevant state of the art and thus optimise the invention reports.
The innovation result comprises many highly relevant, pre-tested invention reports in a short time at manageable transparent costs.
The workshops are offered as in-house seminars on site at the customer’s premises in German or English.
