Patent commercialization is an important issue to most country, for only 0.3 percent of patent have commercialized in the world. Researchers try hard to enhance the rate of patent commercialization. This paper focus on innovation of organization and management to enhance the rate of patent commercialization. Which is based on team work and plan to promote step by step, for most patent owner develop patent but do not equally put effort on patent commercialization, and that is waste precious time and resource. This research directly analysis government published patent secondary data and the other part is questionnaires survey to patentees, with which to find best way of patent commercialization.
