Industrials under digital transformation are facing an increased need for partnering, want to be quick at claiming new white space unlocked by digital, are seeing risks of new entrants/new competition, want to make sure they don’t get locked into the wrong relationships/wrong ecosystem rules etc.
Intellectual Property (in its broad sense, including e.g. data etc) is recognized as a key asset in this play, but internal IP organizations/teams are often not set up to meet the needs of the new digital environment.
A realigned IP capability, closely embedded with the digital business, is the answer.
