In a given company, ~1% of employees produce 99% of patents.
Thus, individuals who have mastered the skill of inventing and patenting are incredibly valuable!

How can we become inventors?
How can we produce inventions as employees?
How can we encourage inventions as business owners?
I address each of these questions in this presentation, referencing useful books on the subject as well as my own experience as Technical Chair of the Patent Committee for Nortel Networks’ EDN as well as being named inventor on over 80 patents issued and pending.
