Date:12/9/2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Thought leaders play a critical role throughout the development cycle of new pharmaceutical products. In the pre-clinical stage, they serve as technical experts, in Phase I, II and III they are the clinical trial leaders and from pre-launch through patent expiry they are peer influencers.

Clearly, success in the pharmaceutical sector is linked to an organization's ability to build, maintain and manage relationships with Key Opinion Leaders (KOL). Consequently, KOL relationship management has emerged as its own business discipline, a necessary and challenging component of brand promotion.

A study from Best Practices, LLC, Optimizing Key Opinion Leader Relationships: Best Practices in KOL Management, examines how leading pharmaceutical companies approach KOL management.

  • Distinguish between true influence and credentials
  • Segment KOLs by the traits required for a company's needs and strategy
  • Seek opportunities to identify the next generation of KOLs
