About Your Expert Trainer

Course Overview

Declining R&D productivity and Loss of Patent Exclusivity has led to the need to maximize the value of its core assets under ever constrained resources for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industry. An integral part of strategic and business planning, the portfolio management process influences decisions that directly impact company fortunes — especially when advancing the right compounds under risk and uncertainty to create the potential for billions of dollars in long-term revenue.

Effective portfolio management hence becomes critical as top-performing companies review, refresh, and execute their portfolio strategies on a continual basis through the application of excellent process, methodology, analysis, and decision making. For many organizations, however, numerous obstacles make it difficult to adopt a sustainably successful approach to portfolio management.

This 3-day, practical Biotech/Pharma Project Portfolio Management Masterclass has been specially developed for Heads, Managers and Senior Executives of Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies in charge of strategic planning & development, strategic marketing and business development, new product development, project and/or portfolio management and R&D who are looking to get a more coherent, efficient and comprehensive view of the project portfolio management process and strategy, in order to gain market success.

This Masterclass is your roadmap to maximizing portfolio value in accordance with management’s strategic and financial goals. Designed to improve companies’ abilities to progress compounds from the pre-clinical stage to commercial brand management, it showcases benchmarks and best practices for teams managing investments across the entire value chain – pre-clinical and clinical projects as well as marketed brand products.
