Abstract

Sullivan's model presents an opportunity to explore the management of intellectual property (IP) as a specialised
activity in the discipline of knowledge management. The model is analysed in terms of strengths and weaknesses to gain a
better understanding of the relationship between knowledge, the demands of the new economy and the role of intellectual
property in organisations. The analysis focuses on the central importance of managers as key agents in the creation and
delivery of value through the commercialisation of IP.
