This webinar will include a live demo using a practical design with manufacturing considerations.
Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.
Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.
R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.
This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.
Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.

A Product Manager has the unenviable task of prioritization, balancing several short and long-term objectives to arrive at the what and when for the product team. For an early stage product, stack ranking priorities might be sufficient. For a mature product, the challenge is often deciding what not to focus on at any given time because several areas will need at least a minimum level of investment to continue to serve your customers and stay competitive. The right prioritization framework, therefore, depends on the factors such as maturity of the product, organization and competitive environment.
