This is the third in the series of guides on \u201cIntellectual Property for
Business\u201d. It focuses on patents, a key tool to enhance a company\u2019s
ability to draw maximum benefit from new and innovative ideas and
technological capabilities. The management of knowledge resources,
especially new ideas and concepts, is essential to the ability of any
enterprise, to change, adapt, and seize new opportunities as it
competes in a fast-changing business environment.

In the knowledge economy of today, the patent strategy of an
innovative enterprise should be a key factor in its business strategy.
This guide explains in a simple and practical way the business
benefits of the patent system for all types of enterprises. While
readers are advised to consult a patent expert when seeking to
protect, exploit or enforce a patent, the guide provides practical
information intended to help readers to understand the basics
and to be able to ask the right questions while consulting an
expert on patent matters.

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are encouraged to
use the guide with a view to integrating their technology and
patent strategies into their overall business, marketing and export
strategies. WIPO welcomes feedback to further refine the guide
with a view to ensuring that it adequately meets the emerging
needs of SMEs worldwide.

Nationally customized versions of the guide could be developed
in cooperation with national institutions and local partners,
which are welcome to contact WIPO to obtain a copy of the
guidelines on customization.
