1. Define clear examples of your focus areas
A focus area is the primary area of IP strategy that will be addressed. Focus areas should be determined by the organization's overall IP strategy goals. Examples of focus areas could include managing intellectual property, training employees, and establishing IP rights.

Objectives are the specific goals that the organization wants to achieve in each focus area. Examples of objectives could include protecting intellectual property, monitoring IP rights, educating staff on IP, and filing IP applications.
3. Set measurable targets (KPIs) to tackle the objective
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are measurable targets that should be set for each objective. KPIs should include an initial value, target value, and unit of measure. Examples of KPIs could include increase IP protection (initial 0%, target 100%), detect IP infringements (initial 0%, target 100%), and increase IP knowledge (initial 0%, target 100%).
