As biopharma companies evolve their business models in response to economic pressures, changing patient expectations, and new technologies that are powering everything from drug discovery to the sales process, alliances and partnerships multiply. The demand for managing alliances grows, yet in a pandemic environment, uncertainty is constraining resources and budgets making it an imperative to prove the value of the alliance management function.
On October 27, Jan Twombly, president of The Rhythm of Business and an ASAP Board of Directors member, will present her company’s prescription for maximizing the ability of alliance managers to deliver value to their organizations. She will discuss three influencing factors:
- The profile of the alliance portfolio – the criticality of each partnership to the business, the degree of internal cross-functional engagement, and the interconnectivity with other partners
- The alliance management services required – given the profile, the sophistication and range of services that are of greatest value to stakeholders as they pursue the objectives of the alliances
- The alliance management resources available – the organization and allocation of available professional expertise over the portfolio and the development and deployment of adjunct resources to handle routine matters
