Event Focus

The success of a pharmaceutical company relies on effective portfolio management and resource planning. Increasing amounts of drug discoveries and commercially available therapies have forced pharmaceutical companies to re-evaluate their portfolio successes. Changing regulations and government compliance has also posed a threat to successful resource planning and portfolio management. It is now more important than ever for methods and processes to be put in place to ensure all projects are being evaluated and company assets are being leveraged to their fullest potential.

This conference will focus on the future direction of portfolio management and resource planning, along with the effects that regulations have on processes and challenges of forecasting for resource planning.

2. Utilizing internal resources to strengthen portfolio strategy

3. Processes to achieve a balanced portfolio

4. Leveraging software vendors and contract research organizations (CRO) to improve portfolio management

5. The future of portfolio management and resource planning
