This paper is an attempt to develop a typology which would theoretically represent the relationship between a patent strategy and a business strategy in a given organization. Such a relationship follows from previous work in related fields which theories a linkage between business strategy and functional strategy that can have a positive impact on organizational performance. An underling assumption is made that intellectual capital represents a functional area for today's high tech firm. In creating the proposed typology, use is made of the Miles and Snow typology of business strategies.
