Abstract:In this study, an attempt is made to use the Patent Management Maturity Model (PMMM) to measure the performance of strategic patent management for patent-intensive companies from a different angle. The main assumption is that large patent-intensive companies with mature patent functions also score higher on the performance of those functions. To explore the performance of patent management a literature study was done were both the relevant aspects of the PMMM and patent management performance form the most prominent factors. Within the model, patent functions are clearly defined, and for each of these functions performance indicators are selected from existing theory. Questionnaires based on this model were used for a survey amongst patent-intensive companies, resulting in a rare conceptualization of the organization of strategic patent management and recommendations to improve model and method for future research.
