Enabling Growth: The Strategic Mission of Alliance Management

Biopharmaceutical companies have embraced alliances and collaboration as a core strategy for growth in an era when they are fighting against many forces that stymie that growth. Alliance managers have a central role to play in ensuring their companies can realize the alliance success the C-Suite expects. Our keynote presenter will share:

  • C-Suite expectations of alliances and alliance managers relative to their growth agendas.
  • The anticipated external forces alliance managers should be preparing to address within their alliances.
