To properly evaluate two pilot programs developed by the USPTO to expedite the patent application examination process, the team obtained feedback from supervisors of the two pilot programs as well as quantitative and qualitative data on timeliness, quality management and office processes involved. These were compared to that of the standard examination process in order to give the USPTO useful feedback on whether or not the pilot programs are ready to be applied on a larger scale.
