Strategic Innovators & Leadership Program for Engineers / Scientists
DFP® Level 1 catch-up
It takes time, resoruces and investment to develop technology. Unfortunately, a great invention need not be a great patent. If it is loosely written, the competitors can easily circumvent with very less effort legally.
The fundamental learning of this workshop enables engineers and scientists to find ways of ensuring strengthening their inventions without giving the opportunity for the competitors to circumvent.
Further, if there is a need to circumvent a patent, this learning gives Freedom to Operate solutions with less time and effort.
Design for Patentability® (DFP) is a powerful design technology that is based on a rational and disciplined process. It employs an efficient suite of tools and methods for improving existing products and technologies as well as for developing winning next-generation products. These approaches can also be used to develop the required functionality, reduce the cost, enabling the new and improved products to be brought to market with a very high probability of being patented.
The methodology that we adopt is evolved 70 years back by decoding the smart moves of the most famous innovators across the world and summarized as a structured method of problem solving.
Key learnings from this workshop include:
Learn to model a claim using the language of innovation
Learn 2 methods of circumventing patents
Learn 2 strategies to protect your patent
Get introduced to TESE, Trends of Engineering System Evolution
Learn ways to strengthen your patents on Non-obviousness / Inventive step
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Design for Patentability® approaches secure satisfying the necessary criteria of patentability, develop a firewall of independent and dependent claims as well as enable to circumvent competitive patents providing freedom to operate and, in most cases, IP protection of the alternative designs.
Innovative hybridization with patentable outcome, identification of “white spots” for patenting are other areas where DFP has proved to be extremely powerful.
Level 1 DFP-1 Certification “catch-up” workshop presented below, is designed for people who have obtained Level 1 certification from MATRIZ. It enables the participants to master the WIPO-approved DFP tools needed for competitive patent circumvention, boosting up the patentability criteria, performing innovative product hybridization resulting in patentable solutions.
Some of you may be seasoned inventors, why would this learning be required NOW? Bring a patent that you have filed and learn how to circumvent before your competitor does. Further, develop picket fencing strategy so that you contribute to patent portfolio.
By the end of this workshop, each one would learn
1. Learn multiple ways to circumvent a patent and strengthen your patent
2. Build a pipeline towards patent portfolio
3. Build multiple embodiments that can help to strengthen the invention
In association with DFP Institute, DFP Catch-up L1 is scheduled for engineers / Scientists / IP professionals with TRIZ level 1 certification.
IP professionals: Patent Agents, Patent Attorney’s & IP Analysts
CORPORATIONS WHO HAD MULTIPLE OF THESE WORKSHOPS
General Electric, Samsung, Hyundai Motor Company, ABB, Siemens, FIAT Group, Unilever, Intel, POSCO, LG, Proctor & Gamble to name a few
