TECHNOLOGY COMPETITIVE INTELLIGENCE
Patent based indicators describing competitive environments
A set of indicators has been developed to describe your competitive environment. Technology Life-Cycle Assessments show, whether technologies are emerging or stagnating. Four phases (disruptive innovation, induction, emerging and stagnation) are detected. Tabular industry structures show technology priorities of other companies and make new and upcoming players transparent. Portfolio charts, such as the technology portfolio or company portfolios visualize growing technologies and companies. Network graphs show the connectivity of technologies and companies. Geo-maps visualize the innovation-hubs worldwide.
The analysis process to derive this information is structued in four steps: the technology briefing where the scope of the project is specified, the topic validation to approve the topic specification, the discussion of the results in workshop and finally the results are interpreted and documented in a management presentation and a report.
