Digital delivery is an important part of our public services, and this is often underpinned by the provision of specialist software. Such software can be central to the delivery of your organisation’s objectives, and can be expensive to develop or buy. These make it a valuable knowledge asset. The Government Digital Service provides a Technology Code of Practice which should be used for all technology projects or programmes. Where organisations do engage in transactions involving IP, the Intellectual Property Office has outlined three main approaches to help arrive at a valuation for IP ( see the Finance Toolkit): It is valuable for an organisation to have in place mechanisms that help to identify knowledge assets at the point of their creation or even in anticipation of their creation. By identifying them at this early stage, an organisation will be much better placed to make strategic decisions, for example around ownership, protection and potential wider uses that will allow their value to be maximised over the long-term. It can also provide an opportunity to consider whether the organisation already holds or has access to existing knowledge assets that could be leveraged or repurposed in a way that delivered greater value for money than creating a new asset.

Once identified, the organisation should have a method of recording these systematically, with key information relevant to their effective management. formal appraisal guidelines, for example, having knowledge asset work included and rewarded as an explicit work objective that contributes to the overarching goals of the organisation Knowhow refers to practical knowledge about how to do something, which can be hugely valuable. Knowhow might encompass material which could go on to be protected by IP, such as a patentable invention before the patent application has been made. It might be something related to, but not part of, an IP right, such as specialist knowledge required to operate a machine. Knowhow might also be something entirely separate from IP rights, such as the competitive advantage inherent in having a more efficient business model than a competitor. Knowhow can be treated in much the same way as other IP rights, usually protected by trade secrecy when forming part of a licence or collaboration agreement. It can also be all information not in the public domain held in any form, including without limitation that comprised in or derived from drawings, data formulae, patterns, specifications, notes, samples, chemical compounds, biological materials, computer software, component lists, instructions, manuals, brochures, catalogues and process descriptions and scientific approaches and methods. Any kind of public sector asset can and should be considered. Candidates include both physical and intangible assets, for example land, buildings, equipment, software and intellectual property.” For example, the Model Services Contract ( MSC) and MSC guidance sets out how to treat IP in a procurement contract. The clauses relating to this have been carefully drafted to represent a fair commercial position, though exceptionally there may be some suppliers with whom discussions on these provisions may be necessary. Specialist legal advice should be sought in these circumstances.

Box 4.B. provides a simplified version of a model that you can use to test your thinking before going into contracts with third parties.

Mary and Percy were interesting enough, but I was annoyed by everyone's (including Mary's) unhappiness with the passion Mary had with Somerset. Who cares if she loved it? Who cares if she wanted to run herself into the ground with it? If it's what she loved, then others should have been happy for her. Well, Ollie was happy to let her be her, but he was so one dimensional, he hardly counted as a character. I didn't like that the author kept saying over and over again that Mary couldn't have both. She couldn't have Percy and Somerset. That Percy didn't want to be second best in Mary's affection made him unworthy of her in the first place. Of course they only realized what they wanted when it was too late. And of course, only too late by a day. Such is the plot of melodrama. This chapter gives guidance around the development of knowledge asset management strategies, including: Annex A contains more on the main categories of IP likely to be used to protect a knowledge asset in governmentA4.15): “Each public sector organisation is expected to develop and operate an asset management strategy underpinned by a reliable and up to date asset register. The board should review the strategy annually as part of the corporate business plan.”

The world building in this book was exceptional and I was drawn in from very early on. I love Sarah J Maas’ lyrical and evocative writing style. The world of Prythian is vividly described and I felt like I was there. The faerie courts are beautifully realised, each with its own unique characteristics and traditions. For projects likely to give rise to significant knowledge assets it is important to engage with commercial, legal and other IP specialists at the pre-business case stage, as this is a highly specialised area.As much as I love and look forward to spring, I do enjoy the slower pace of winter that comes after Christmas and allows more time for reading. Something warm to drink and a good book. all public sector organisations should have a strategy in place to support the effective management of knowledge assets. This will include measures to:
