The position I will be interviewing for is Capabilities & Insights Analyst- Intellectual Property. The cases and frameworks available to practice do not have Intellectual property component. Any ideas on how should I go about it? Should I practice the cases using the material available and in addition prepare Intellectual property-specific cases on my own? I can share the job posting link if it helps to give guidance correctly. Thanks!

Hello!

Usually, IP departments are focusing precisely on how to monetize all the IP and knowlege-related assets. I would think that way, and even think of theoretical cases "how would you monetize product XX with characteristics YY, given contraints ZZ..."

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara
