Leading Biopharmas Will Deliver Case Studies on Achieving Productivity Excellence through Engagement, Technology, Other Tools

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Quality and process improvement efforts gained new momentum over the past year in light of demands for higher efficiencies fueled by a stagnating economy. Biopharmaceutical companies are facing quality issues on multiple fronts -- smaller pipelines are affecting the bottom line, competition for top talent is ever increasing and harsher FDA regulations brought more scrutiny to R&D and New Product Development -- to name a few.

These and more top-of-mind quality challenges are the central theme at the 10th Annual Quality Excellence Conference: How Process Improvement Leaders Produce Profits in Recessions ( This working conference is held at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 22-24, 2008.

Leading biopharma companies will share candid case studies on the most pressing issues providing you with actionable best practices to take right back to work. For example, a veteran in field communications at Sanofi-Aventis will show how investing in the right people can be a huge cost savings for the organization in his presentation entitled "Employee Engagement: A Tool for Reducing Costs," while further case examples from Roche and LifeScan focus on leveraging IT solutions to drive down the cost of critical business processes.
