Transformation in the life sciences industry: the key role of human capital solutions

Clearly the changes taking place in the life science industry over the past few years have not been the usual market adjustments; they are fundamental--and could require a true “mindset change” for those who will eventually succeed. Consider that the emerging business model is now focusing on:

  • providing value added solutions vs. sale of new products
  • developing strong client relations/health outcomes vs. product development/marketing
  • fostering an approach to R&D that is matrixed/market-driven vs. “top-down”/chemistry-driven
  • promoting product development excellence vs. technical excellence.
  • establishing selling relationships through a very different, focused sales force that collaborates both internally and externally vs. deploying a traditional large/siloed sales force
