Creating and managing a patent information group in a global environment

By Donna Kaye Wilson


The article describes the key aspects of setting up and managing a global team of patent information scientists (GLIST) to work primarily with patent attorneys in a multinational pharmaceutical company. The main features identified for this team included: - the flexibility to deal with searches efficiently, worldwide, within the team; - close interaction between the information scientists and the attorneys, in partnership; - managers of the team also carry out some searches themselves; - sufficient language expertise within the team to carry out most translations in-house; - good training and mentoring procedures, allied to a strong team ethic; - a final product of each search which is a value-added search report, delivered in a timely manner, using a standardized GLIST-branded template.GLIST Global team Patent information Information scientists Multinational pharmaceutical Flexibility Working managers Translations in-house Training Mentoring Team ethic Value-added Search report Timely delivery Report template
