Spotlight is on knowledge in todays economy Knowledge, Weightless, Information, Digital or Service Economy Factors of production: Land, Labor, Capital, Intangibles (Knowledge) Knowledge as useful Information (or Service) Information as a Public Good Information as Property
Market-oriented Economy Playing Field: Unfair competition; free riding National Legal Systems: Diversity (bilateral/regional/ international treaties or agreements) Adding Value : Meeting or exceeding market needs or expectations Market research: Consumers needs, competing products or substitutes, gaps Technological innovation as an element of marketing
The challenge of adding value in todays economy Raw materials/Inputs: Processing (Value addition) = Value added output/component; product; sale; Profit Value addition: Better: Functional/technological or aesthetic/non-technological; Rational/Emotional (More for Less) Price; access/availability; consistency Individual, Enterprise (legal person), Chains, Networks; consortia; Open Innovation (Industry-Government-Academia) Ownership vs. access to knowledge Value Addition, Value Delivery and Value Extraction

THE PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE A reminder that most products do not live for ever A conceptual framework only Difficult to measure where a product is in its life cycle
What is innovation? Innovation is the process and outcome of creating something new, which is also of value. Innovation involves the whole process from opportunity identification, ideation or invention to development, prototyping, production marketing and sales, while entrepreneurship only needs to involve commercialization (Schumpeter).
What is innovation? Today it is said to involve the capacity to quickly adapt by adopting new innovations (products, processes, strategies, organization, etc) Also, traditionally the focus has been on new products or processes, but recently new business models have come into focus, i.e. the way a firm delivers value and secures profits.
What is innovation? Schumpeter argued that innovation comes about through new combinations made by an entrepreneur, resulting in –a new product, –a new process, –opening of new market, –new way of organizing the business –new sources of supply
Dimensions of innovation There are several types of innovation –Process, product/service, strategy, which can vary in degree of newness: –Incremental to radical, and impact: continuous to discontinuous
Drivers for innovation –Financial pressures to reduce costs, increase efficiency, do more with less, etc –Increased competition –Shorter product life cycles –Value migration –Stricter regulation –Industry and community needs for sustainable development –Increased demend for accountability –Demographic, social and maket changes –Rising customer expectations regarding service and quality –Changing economy –Greater availability of potentially useful technologies coupled with a need to exceed the competition in these technologies
What is innovation? Gary Hamel argued that todays market place is hostile to incumbents, who now needs to conduct radical business innovation: –Radically reconceiving products and services, not just developing new products and services –Redefining market space –Redrawing industry boundaries
New conditions for innovation Small start-up entrepreneurs increasingly depend on large firms: –as suppliers or customers –for venture finance, –for exit opportunites, –for knowledge (production, markets and R&D) –and for opening new markets.
New conditions for innovation Large firms increasingly depend on small start-ups –for NPD, –as suppliers of new knowledge (which they cannot develop themselves), –or organizational renewal, for experimentation with busienss models, –for opening new markets, etc
New developments in innovation raises new issues and problems Greater emphasis on commercializing scientific discoveries, particularly in IT and the bio-sciences Speed and potential value of scientific progress leads to emphasis on solid and well-designed portfolios of research projects Universites as active drivers of innovation: Academic entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial university University-industry partnerships Increased search for radical innovation and top-line growth.

Entrepreneurship 1 Entrepreneurship drives innovation, competitiveness, job creation and economic growth. It allows new/innovative ideas to turn into successful ventures in high-tech sectors and/or can unlock the personal potential of disadvantaged people to create jobs for themselves and find a better place in society.
Entrepreneurship 2 Entrepreneurship, in small business or large, focuses on "what may be" or "what can be". One is practicing entrepreneurship by looking for what is needed, what is missing, what is changing, and what consumers will buy during the coming years.
Entrepreneurship 3 Entrepreneurs have: –A passion for what they do –The creativity and ability to innovate –A sense of independence and self- reliance –(Usually) a high level of self confidence –A willingness and capability (though not necessarily capacity or preference) for taking risks
Entrepreneurship 4 Entrepreneurs do not (usually) have: –A tolerance for organizational bureaucracies –A penchant for following rules –A structured approach to developing and implementing ideas –The foresight to plan a course of action once the idea is implemented and established
Entrepreneurial Success 1. People (Entrepreneur /Entrepreneurial Team) 2. Opportunity (Marriage of Market and Product/Service) 3. Access to Resources (Land. Labor, Capital, Knowledge And the fit amongst these three elements (Business Model)
Frantrepreneur (fran*tre*pre*neur) n. (fran*tre*pre*neur) n. One possessing the desire to be a business owner -- without the desire to recreate the wheel -- by following a proven system for the benefit of personal and professional goals. What is a Franchisee?
The Frantrepreneur Mentality Im in business for myself, but not by myself. I have the opportunity to learn from the success and failure of others. I want a bottled process for success that I can use in developing my own successful business. "Why would I spend years and the investment required to establish a successful brand when I could buy a franchise which provides immediate access to a successful business system and a brand name which others already have made successful?" Why would I work for someone else when I can work for myself and reap the rewards of my efforts?"
Entry Strategies New Business –Develop a new product or service –Develop a similar product or service –Competitive approaches Existing Business –Buying a business –Franchise –Joint venture – customer or supplier
Competitive strategy is about being different. It means deliberately choosing to perform activities differently or to perform different activities than rivals to deliver a unique mix of value. Michael E. Porter
Definition Competitive Advantage –An advantage over competitors gained by offering consumers greater value than competitors offer.
Competitive Strategies How does an organization improve their competitive performance? Must establish a competitive advantage in 3 areas: –Uniqueness: of resources & processes (Bill Gates knowledge of IBM) –Value: where products/services warrant a higher-than-average price or exceptionally low –Difficult to imitate: when products/services are hard to mimic or duplicate
Basic Competitive Strategies: Porter –Overall cost leadership Lowest production and distribution costs –Differentiation Creating a highly differentiated product line and marketing program –Focus Effort is focused on serving a few market segments Competitive Strategies
Basic Competitive Strategies: Value Disciplines –Operational excellence Superior value via price and convenience –Customer intimacy Superior value by means of building strong relationships with buyers and satisfying needs –Product leadership Superior value via product innovation Competitive Strategies
CORE COMPETENCES Definition Hammel and Prahalad defined core competence as a central value - creating capability of an organization/enterprise.
CORE COMPETENCES Core competences are activities or processes that critically underpin an organisation competitive advantage. They create and sustain the ability to meet the critical success factors of particular customer groups better than providers in ways that are difficult to imitate
CORE COMPETENCES Core competences are distinctive capabilities that lead a company to a competitive advantage. Features of an enterprise that cannot be readily reproduced by a competitor.
CORE COMPETENCES Core competences can vary through the time depending on the strategy adapted by the companies and the identification of the core competencies is the first step for a company to decide which business opportunities to pursue.
PRICING STRATEGIES Product Line Pricing: image pricing/price bundling/premium pricing/complementary pricing Dynamic Pricing Strategies: multi-tiered price or channel pricing
Low-Cost Provider Strategies Make achievement of meaningful lower costs than rivals the theme of firms strategy Include features and services in product offering that buyers consider essential Find approaches to achieve a cost advantage in ways difficult for rivals to copy or match Keys to Success Low-cost leadership means low overall costs, not just low manufacturing or production costs!
Incorporate differentiating features that cause buyers to prefer firms product over brands of rivals Find ways to differentiate that create value for buyers and are not easily matched or cheaply copied by rivals Not spending more to achieve differentiation than the price premium that can be charged Objective Keys to Success Differentiation Strategies
Where to Find Differentiation Opportunities in the Value Chain Purchasing and procurement activities Product R&D and product design activities Production process / technology-related activities Manufacturing / production activities Distribution-related activities Marketing, sales, and customer service activities Internally Performed Activities, Costs, & Margins Activities, Costs, & Margins of Suppliers Buyer/User Value Chains Activities, Costs, & Margins of Forward Channel Allies & Strategic Partners
How to Achieve a Differentiation-Based Advantage Approach 1 Incorporate features/attributes that raise the performance a buyer gets out of the product Approach 2 Incorporate features/attributes that enhance buyer satisfaction in non-economic or intangible ways Approach 3 Compete on the basis of superior capabilities Approach 4 Incorporate product features/attributes that lower buyers overall costs of using product
Unique taste – Dr. Pepper Multiple features – Microsoft Windows and Office Wide selection and one-stop shopping – Home Depot, Amazon.com Superior service -- FedEx, Ritz-Carlton Spare parts availability – Caterpillar Engineering design and performance – Mercedes, BMW Prestige – Rolex Product reliability – Johnson & Johnson Quality manufacture – Michelin, Toyota Technological leadership – 3M Corporation Top-of-line image – Ralph Lauren, Starbucks, Chanel Types of Differentiation Themes
Sustaining Differentiation: Keys to Competitive Advantage Most appealing approaches to differentiation –Those hardest for rivals to match or imitate –Those buyers will find most appealing Best choices to gain a longer-lasting, more profitable competitive edge –New product innovation –Technical superiority –Product quality and reliability –Comprehensive customer service –Unique competitive capabilities
Best-Cost Provider Strategies Combine a strategic emphasis on low-cost with a strategic emphasis on differentiation –Make an upscale product at a lower cost –Give customers more value for the money Deliver superior value by meeting or exceeding buyer expectations on product attributes and beating their price expectations Be the low-cost provider of a product with good-to- excellent product attributes, then use cost advantage to under price comparable brands Objectives
Focus / Niche Strategies Involve concentrated attention on a narrow piece of the total market – Serve niche buyers better than rivals Choose a market niche where buyers have distinctive preferences, special requirements, or unique needs Develop unique capabilities to serve needs of target buyer segment Objective Keys to Success
Examples of Focus Strategies Animal Planet and History Channel –Cable TV Google –Internet search engines Porsche –Sports cars Cannondale –Top-of-the line mountain bikes Enterprise Rent-a-Car –Provides rental cars to repair garage customers Bandag –Specialist in truck tire recapping
Focus / Niche Strategies and Competitive Advantage Achieve lower costs than rivals in serving a well-defined buyer segment – Focused low-cost strategy Offer a product appealing to unique preferences of a well-defined buyer segment – Focused differentiation strategy Approach 1 Approach 2 Which hat is unique?
An Aspect of Good Management People Management – because IP is generated by people and used by people Knowledge Management – because a lot of knowledge is informal and may or may not crystallise as recognisable category of IP IT Strategic Planning – because a lot of IP is IT-related; some of the more complex IP issues arise in IT context Contract Management – because IP is often created (or improved) in context of a contract (eg, supply contract or joint venture relationship) Asset Management – because IP is an asset, albeit intangible; it has a value Risk Management – because there are risks to an organisation flowing from its actions, or failure to act, in relation to IP (including risk of lost opportunity) with permission of P Crisp, AGS, 2003
Introduction to IP Management 1 Legal Technical Business Export Financial Relationships Accounting Tax Insurance Security Automation Personnel
Introduction to IP Management 2 Trademarks (Brands) Geographical Indications Industrial Designs Patents and Utility Models Copyright and Related Rights Trade Secrets New Varieties of Plants Unfair Competition
Basic Message 1 IP adds value at every stage of the value chain from creative/innovative idea to putting a new, better, and cheaper, product/service on the market: Literary / artistic creation Invention FinancingProduct Design Commercialization Marketing Licensing Exporting Patents / Utility Models/Trade secrets Copyright/Related Rights Patents / Utility models Industrial Designs/ Trademarks/GIs Trademarks/ GIs Ind. Designs/Patents/Copyright All IP Rights
Basic Message 2 IP Strategy should be an integral part of the overall business strategy of an Enterprise The IP strategy of an Enterprise is influenced by its creative/innovative capacity, financial resources, field of technology, competitive environment, etc. BUT: Ignoring the IP system altogether is in itself an IP strategy, which may eventually prove very costly or even fatal
