    In June 2017 my company submitted two related patent applications for a couple of my inventions.  In December we received the search reports which I reviewed and in doing so, identified some fairly minor changes to the applications.  I was due to provide updated applications into our IP people but held off until I had been on last week's workshop.  And I am glad I did.
    I applied some of the learning from last week and I suddenly had a great deal more clarity over my own inventions.  I also identified some important extensions which could be included.

    I have now updated the applications and sent them to my IP people...they are now much stronger applications.

    All down to the Patenting with TRIZ course.
