Competitive Strategy in Technology Management
This paper proposes a patent portfolio risk analysis and decision tool for technology managers. The goal is to evaluate the relative risk of portfolio licensing as opposed to litigation while providing a simplified presentation for management. This analysis technique combines numerical analysis of patents in the portfolio with a heatmap overlay on the product architecture. This technique is then applied to a widely licensed telecommunications patent portfolio.
