Capabilities, Methods, and Outcomes (CMOs)

Capabilities, Methods, and Outcomes (CMOs)

UVG analyzes innovations in terms of their fundamental capabilities (what they do), methods (how they do it), and outcomes (to what end). We call this information “CMOs”.

CMOs provide a rapid, systematic approach for finding opportunity

  • Confirm market need
  • Define product attributes
  • Validate Market Opportunities
  • Find new market opportunities

Clearly articulate the value of your innovation. CMOs are a systematic way to to clearly communicate to potential buyers and partners the unique value of your innovation. UVG can break down the technical attributes of an invention, and then articulate a detailed list of current and even potential capabilities, methods, and outcomes.
Identify the addressable market opportunity. UVG analyzes the competition according to each attribute of the invention. UVG efficiently and thoroughly identifies unmet needs in the market that the subject invention can serve. By understanding unmet market need as well as the invention’s potential capabilities, new opportunities can be identified.
Identify future opportunities. By comparing the potential CMOs of the invention with current unmet market needs, and assessing the level of innovation in the marketplace, UVG can project future opportunities to guide further technical development of the innovation.
