  • When asked to identify where they believe risk will rise most sharply in the next 10 years, respondents highlighted the areas of pricing and sales, marketing, regulatory affairs, talent management and R&D.
  • "Most creative industries have encountered challenges when facing disruptive technologies," said John Rhodes, DTT Life Sciences Leader.

Companies have to be willing to move away in some cases from past things that made them great to the new realities of delivering innovative medicines and devices within the economic realities of today's markets."

"The full implications of these shifts have yet to be wholly understood; however, life sciences companies may be facing the prospect of strategic transformation as an ultimatum rather than an option. They will be challenged to work together with regulators and payers over the next decade to find new approaches that work for everyone in order to thrive."
