Companies are faced with difficulties regarding the efficiency of their intellectual property, stemming from both the unsuitable choice of individual (formal or informal) protection mechanisms as well as their sub-optimal use. In this article we present a way in which the activity table technique may be a useful, comprehensive, holistic, but still relatively simple way for intellectual property protection processes' improvement; allowing us to find bottle-necks and ways to avoid them as well as include a systematic element into processes usually riddled by informality and accompanied by a high level of uncertainty. In doing this, we highlight the steps and considerations that are needed in order to be able to use the activity table.
