Launch excellence in Pharma needs both inspirational, innovative brand development, as well as agile launch deployment, and they clearly need to work hand in hand.

Smart organisations are continuously looking for ways to reduce or eliminate friction and create smooth hand overs and, yet:

Given some of the trends and opportunities in the Pharma world today there must be ways to address this balance, and ensure that desired therapeutic impact and supportive patient solutions are delivered seamlessly:

agile organisations are ensuring they maximise learning

One way we see this balance being addressed is that shortly before, during and after launch, agile organisations are ensuring they maximise learning. They are set up to share results in real time, and ensure maximum transparency across markets, within a culture of learning and improvement.

The normal hierarchy of global and local opinion can’t get in the way of objective readings of the feedback and rapid response and change where required.

​Local, regional and global teams must collaborate or merge

Local, regional and global teams must collaborate or merge: we’re working with smaller companies that don’t separate these capabilities, and larger companies who are working hard to eliminate the friction that comes with structures required by regulation or scale.

Companies are not only talking about agile, they are acting on it: new ways of working means some are now deploying dedicated launch squads to rapidly take the learning from one launch to the next.
