3 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 3 DILIGENT What is Intellectual Property? “Anything generated by human mind/effort which is new, useful, entertaining, aesthetically pleasing, etc.” Article I, Section 8, Clause 8 - U.S. Constitution. "To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;" –Copyrights –Patents –Trade Secrets –Know How –Trademarks

4 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 4 DILIGENT What is Innovation? Ideas, having Novelty, and Non- Obviousness, pursued with Vigour And Timeliness, becomes first Invention, and with an Owner’s Nurturing, finally… $$$uccess “Ingredients for a successful Innovation Process” Presentation to AURIL # Conference. University of Teesside 17th September 1999 by Dr Martin Fakley, ICI Science & Technology, Policy & Strategy # Association for University and Research and Industry Links (UK).

5 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 5 DILIGENT What is Technology? Knowledge by itself is not technology. Technology is a process: It has stages, phases, and typical behaviours It operates and can be understood at different levels (e.g. technology policy, individual scientists) It involves different “stakeholder” perspectives (e.g. developers and users)

6 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 6 DILIGENT Technology Stages, Phases & Behaviours A long-term (confusing) process - not a single event: Linearity as convenient fiction (technology push). Caveat: The intellectual elegance of your science or technology won’t necessarily attract market attention. Lots of feedback and recursive loops (market pull). Caveat: Successful technology transfer demands lots of iterations. There are marker events or key milestones (e.g., being awarded a patent, signing a license deal). You need to be in for the long haul.

10 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 10 DILIGENT™ Commercialization With Confidence ™ Two key principles drive the DILIGENT model: 1.Early planning and analysis returns disproportionate benefits. The beginning is the most important part of the work (Plato). 2.Elite venture capitalists have deep technology, industry and market understanding. Most commercialization efforts are tactical and do not commence full market, industry, distribution and sales planning until talks with “financiers” commence. DILIGENT and the slogan Commercialization With Confidence are trademarks of Digital Investor Pty Ltd.

11 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 11 Key Principle #1 Early Planning and Analysis Typically commercialization efforts are tactical: 1.They focus on point issues – typically: patent law, technology, licensing, agreements, commercial structures and financing. 2.Attention is often focused on an end-point of financing with a fall-back to licensing – which is a natural way for “point advisors” in legal, patents, commercial and financing to channel the process. 3.Market, industry, channels and sales strategies are often not performed, or if at all performed without rigor and method and integration within a total process. Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory.Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat. (Sun Tzu)

12 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 12 Key Principle #2 Elite Investors Are Deep and Broad The most successful venture investors: 1.Have deep understanding of their chosen field of technology 2.Possess a vision of the industry and its dynamics 3.Can perceive the value proposition and help articulate it 4.Mentally assimilate channels, partners and global relationships 5.Understand the people and what drives then to succeed 6.Contribute to marketing, sales strategy, and sales itself 7.Seek strategic partners to bring finance and other most importantly complementary resources FINANCING is only ONE RESOURCE that is brought to a deal by these successful venture capitalists.

13 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 13 DILIGENT Fully Integrates the Two Principles This creates and captures maximum value: 1.Market and industry analysis is integrated early 2.Channels and distribution analysis adds options for the potential leverage of value 3.Commercial analysis has as input a broad view of potential resourcing, financing alternatives, and structural alternatives 4.People, sales and marketing are considered after the big picture industry, channels and partnering analysis 5.DILIGENT Confidence Index provides regular feedback DILIGENT creates a Business Plan which will attract maximum interest from targeted 3 rd parties and result in capturing maximum value for owners of research and IP.

14 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 14 DILIGENT Other Benefits A consistent and holistic process which: 1.Focuses attention on capturing value for the owners - not just creating value 2.Provides high executive visibility into the process 3.Allows for consistent comparison and review between opportunities and across the portfolio of commercialization 4.Scopes and directs the engagement of experts and consultants 5.Is continuously improved through the process model DILIGENT is a enabler of higher returns from commercialization at a lower cost and with higher owner/executive visibility and confidence.

15 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page pages of Methodology delivered: As 12 workshops over 3 months for a real case In part for 1 or 2-day overviews of the process Through audit of existing cases, or As an audit of existing methodologies. DILIGENT Delivery Models A component of a Communications Plan, which in turn is a component of the Commercialization Plan.

16 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 16 DILIGENT Confidence Index A tool to enable and provoke discussion: Discussion of different perceptions Resolution of gaps and misunderstandings Input is a number Process is a discussion Output is improved confidence and visibility A component of a Communications Plan, which in turn is a component of the Commercialization Plan.

17 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 17 DILIGENT Commercialization Pipeline A weighted portfolio of opportunities: Tools/matrices displaying the current set of projects to enable Executive decision-making. Showing the potential of the total portfolio Linked to the Confidence Index Weighted throughout the process: –Risk v Reward –Customer impact v Type of technology –Resources v Time to launch (or pipeline stage) –Pipeline valuation (anticipated revenues)

18 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 18 DILIGENT Pulse™ An interactive continuous survey: Touches all stakeholders to monitor their confidence Measures the process and the results of the process A direct measure of CSFs in commercialization: –Understanding of the goals –Potential of the project –Clarity of the roles –Confidence in the people –Satisfaction with the communication. Typically involves a 60 second survey being completed by up to 20 people once each month

19 ©2004 OpenTTO.org Page 19 DILIGENT Management Assessment Tool DILIGENT provides a framework for selection: To assess Management Teams of funds e.g. pre-seed and incubator, on the basis of competencies required for each stage of DILIGENT To use targeted questions for each stage to assess management skills and experience To rank teams and candidates against the required process competencies
