Coopetition in the LED Industry

Finding Cooperative partners is a growing trend in business. The benefits of collaboration are increasingly becoming an important part of enhancing a firms capabilities and cost cutting. Analyzing a firm’s patent portfolio can enable a firm to find potential collaborative partners in order to achieve these ends. Joint venture, licensing can then become part of a firms R&D strategy. Even competitors can become valuable cooperative partners. This presentation from my MBA course looks at the reasons for collaborating and compares two firms in the LED industry in Taiwan. Their portfolio analysis demonstrates how they evolved from competitors to cooperators. LINK TO THE PDF: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/45852891/Joseph%20Lee%20-%20Coopetition.pdf

User Interface flexibility study for software dates back to the 80’s. Finally some strong models are emerging as the number of general purpose devices and platforms expand. For example, the handheld smart-phones now hold almost full PC capabilities and applications are commonly cross platform for iOS, Android, and PC/HTML. This presentation investigates the important considerations and models for creating a flexible mobile app development process.

This paper is written by my professor at the NCHU and I have prepared a PPT presentation and literature review. This paper was published in the journal Nature Biology which is the number one top ranked journal in the category of biology. This paper outlines a proposed method for calculating value of patents in the pharmaceutical industry. The method uses a stochastic Monte-Carlo simulation strategy to account for the uncertainty of life-cycle phase particular to the pharmaceutical industry. In reality, experts are needed to adjust the three main variables of reversion rate, volatility, and drift rate according to the specific conditions of the patent in question. This model of valuation could be useful in patent licensing and sales negotiations.
