Chapter 5. Invention Evaluation Teams

Chapter 5. Invention Evaluation Teams

An invention evaluation team has a very valuable role to serve. This team works to create inventions (or intellectual property) and assess it for problems and solutions that suggest new and unique discoveries. This is accomplished by having an understanding of the laws respective to patents, trademarks, and copyrights.

An invention evaluation team is usually a small group of skilled individuals (maybe 5–10). The needed skills are, among others, effective listening and a broad and deep technical understanding across a wide spectrum of topics. The invention evaluation team meets on a regular basis to review patents and explore the development of strength of the invention(s). The most efficient evaluation teams will track and monitor the nature of invention ideas they review, while managing this intellectual property toward a much larger, more complex portfolio of ideas for their enterprise.
