OUTSOURCING INSIGHTS

  • Corporate Culture: A Competitive Advantage
    Corporate Culture: A Competitive Advantage

    CEOs increased awareness of corporate culture’s role can be traced to a series of studies over more than two decades. Among the first and most important was the comprehensive, critical analysis of more than 200 companies
    that was conducted by Harvard Business School professors John P. Kotter, Ph.D., and James L. Heskett, Ph.D. Their landmark study determined that corporate culture is a strong predictor of financial performance.

  • The Hidden Cost Of Hidden Costs: Five Tips For Discovering The True Cost Of Transport
    The Hidden Cost Of Hidden Costs: Five Tips For Discovering The True Cost Of Transport

    You need to transport high-value, specialty or clinical trial products around the world. You know that shipment integrity is essential—that you can’t afford temperature excursions resulting from a shipment getting delayed in customs, that shipments gone awry can result in devastating losses for your organization.

  • New Requirements In Global Clinical Supply Spur Evolution And Innovation
    New Requirements In Global Clinical Supply Spur Evolution And Innovation

    Who knew clinical trial logistics had so much in common with the automotive and high-tech industries? That certainly seems to be the case with trends like just-in-time (JIT), customer-managed inventory (CMI) and vendor-managed inventory (VMI).

  • Big Pharma Vetran, Peter Bigelow, Will Help “Tell It Like It Is” At Outsourced Pharma West
    Big Pharma Vetran, Peter Bigelow, Will Help “Tell It Like It Is” At Outsourced Pharma West

    Peter Bigelow is both excited and motivated for Outsourced Pharma West in San Francisco November 10-11, by the targeted subject (drug development and manufacturing outsourcing) and streamlined format (all panelist and attendee discussion; no presentations).

  • Building An Analytics-Driven Corporate Culture
    Building An Analytics-Driven Corporate Culture

    Analytics- identifying meaningful patterns in data to gain valuable insights – has become a core focus of the life science industry today, as it has in many other sectors, driving clinical and operational improvements. By Ben McGraw, Clinical Analytics Evangelist, Comprehend Systems

  • The Importance Of Reevaluating The Preferred Vendor List
    The Importance Of Reevaluating The Preferred Vendor List

    Biopharmaceutical companies with preferred provider lists should have an internal system to gather feedback throughout the course of the project and after its completion. However, internal feedback should not be the only basis for evaluation of companies on the preferred vendor list.

  • Why We Took A Different Approach To Planning A Conference

    Like you, I have attended a lot of educational events and conferences over the years. I’m sure we both could list some that were unique, valuable, and memorable while others could be simply categorized as “been there, done that.” And since time is my most precious resource, the last thing I want to do is spend this ever-diminishing asset on attending — or planning — a conference that’s just like all the rest.

  • Are You Properly Selecting Your CMO Partners?

    At the 2013 WTG Global Pharma Manufacturing Summit in Boston, Angie Green gave a presentation on the steps sponsors should follow when selecting CMO partners. The CMO selection steps Angie reviewed are echoed in many of the conference sessions for Outsourced Pharma West—topics chosen by Life Science Leader readers.

  • How To Maximize The Value Of Your Attendance At Outsourced Pharma West

    Outsourced Pharma West (OPW) will be here in just a few short months. Unlike conferences you have attended in the past, OPW will be a unique opportunity to learn and partner. The sessions were requested by you, our readers, via an extensive survey. In selecting speakers, we sought out the most qualified and experienced professionals in the pharma and biotech industries. Many top CMOs and manufacturing experts will be onsite for discussions and partnering opportunities. This is one show you won't want to miss.

  • Industry Insights From The Executive Director Of Compliance At Seattle Genetics

    Kristin Rand always had a fascination with questions science had not yet answered, and she developed an interest in genetics while still in high school. She obtained an undergraduate degree in the Diagnostic Genetic Sciences program at UCONN. FDA law and bioethics were the focus of her graduate degree in law, and she later earned a master degree in industrial-organizational psychology.

    After serving in various positions at Wyeth and Genentech, she landed at Seattle Genetics, where she currently serves as executive director of compliance. In this piece she discusses trends in pharma compliance, and challenges companies can expect to face in 2014 and beyond.

  • WIB Profile: What Pharma Scientists Can Learn From A Lilly Specialty Sales Rep

    When I first spoke with Laura McClung of Eli Lilly & Company about a Women in Bio (WIB) profile article, I almost wrote her off. Being involved in the sales force for Lilly, I initially felt she was too far outside the drug discovery process to contribute meaningful information to the readers of Outsourced Pharma. However, after having just one discussion with her, I immediately changed my mind.

    As McClung points out in this piece, many sales reps for Big Pharma have scientific or medical backgrounds. This makes them some of the most qualified individuals to advise doctors and clinicians on the medicines that will best meet the needs of patients. Their experience working with prescribers also makes them well qualified to provide feedback to those involved in the drug discovery process on what is needed by doctors and patients on the front lines.
