Calling All Innovators: Driving Inclusive Team Idea Generation in a Remote Environment

Overview


As the workforce shifts to remote working environments, it is critical that companies continue to smartly build their patent strategy despite drastically reorganized workflows. With more than 80% of a company’s value tied to its intellectual property, team idea generation can and should still be a crucial element of your growth strategy. While working remotely, in-house counsel remain tasked with effectively leaving the innovation channels open in order to identify patentable ideas in a way that engages all innovators in the company. We will offer actionable steps on how to inclusively engage your teams through virtual collaboration sessions and elevate your patenting strategy to enhance your bottom line.

Join McDermott Will & Emery and the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology for this hour-long webinar, during which we will discuss:

  • Effective techniques to convert day-to-day product development into recorded IP using remote ideation sessions
  • Hybrid brainstorming sessions to evolve beyond the “roundtable” approach of idea generation
  • Driving engagement in company patent filings of diverse, and often underrepresented, innovator audiences
