Pharma Product Commercialization: Standardized Team Processes Help Save Complex Drug Launches
Date:1/31/2008

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The new product development process is exceedingly complex. It spans many years, involves multitudes of people, and consumes hundreds of millions of dollars in capital resources. Not surprisingly, one pharmaceutical marketing executive noted: "This process is so complex that no single person in the organization actually knows how all the parts work."

For this reason, benchmark partners emphasize the importance of standardizing the new-product development process while implementing strong cross-functional launch teams. This team's role of shaping the compound into a successful product is just as important as the biological attributes of the compound. With standardization, individuals and teams can better understand where and how to introduce market insights into the long-spanning commercialization process.

The report, "Managing Cross-Functional Teams for Pharmaceutical Product Commercialization Excellence," delivers proven practices that best-in-class firms use to enable and manage effective cross-functional teams, such as empowering launch teams to make key decisions and team members following well- established, standardized processes.
