  9. 9. IBM Workshop @ 2013 NSBE ConventionAre you prepared for what is next, today? "Let’s also make sure that a high school diploma puts our kids on a path to a good job. Right now, countries like Germany focus on graduating their high school students with the equivalent of a technical degree from one of our community colleges, so that they’re ready for a job. At schools like P-TECH in Brooklyn, a collaboration between New York Public Schools, the City University of New York, and IBM, students will graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree in computers or engineering." -Barack Obama, President of the United States “Take a close look at monthly unemployment figures – specifically the requirements for unfilled positions – and our nation’s fundamental economic challenge becomes clear. We have a “skills crisis,” not a jobs crisis. In New York City, for example, the January 2013 Real Time Jobs Report documents more than 300,000 unfilled jobs – nearly 1,000 at IBM, and thousands more at companies such as AT&T, JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup.” - Stanley S.

There MUST be a better way!Part 2: The Invention Pascal develops a solution to the problem. Stacy will be delighted. As the invention is useful, novel and non-obvious, Pascal later decides to file for a patent. Pascal is the inventor.Part 3: The Patent Application Dwayne is an Attorney who was hired by Pascal to file a patent on the invention. Dwayne and Pascal discuss claiming strategy and a patent application is later filed.Part 4: The Patent Prosecution Ruthie is a Patent Examiner reviewing Pascal’s application. Ruthie resolves an issue of claim scope with Dwayne and together they agree on an amendment that will get a patent for Pascal. 24
