The complimentary webinar series is designed to help life science industry executives, information professionals, CI practitioners and other information stakeholders better understand how to leverage information into a sustained competitive advantage in a changing landscape.
“Finding ways to grow is an imperative for all companies, and executives have found that being innovative with information can transform information from a cost center to a growth engine,” said Alexander Feng, PHT Chair. “This series will highlight some of the best practices in capitalizing on existing information to drive growth in the pharma and life sciences industries.”
The schedule for the series is as follows:
- October 18 - Getting Actionable Information Faster
- October 25 - Managing International Information Effectively
- November 5 - Best Practices in Combining Field Intelligence, Competitive Intelligence, and Published Data
- November 14 - Collecting, Storing, and Maximizing Biomedical Information Resources
Information industry experts agree that pharmaceutical and biomedical companies face a constant demand for highly specialized intelligence to fuel their complex scientific, R&D, M&A, clinical, regulatory, legal, sales, marketing, and development needs.
"The best thing is, much of the knowledge may already exist," said Feng. "Knowing what exists, what doesn’t, and how to ‘connect the dots’ is often the secret sauce to leading organizations. "
"Ultimately, it's about driving results," said Feng, adding that the Webinar series focuses on "harnessing the power of information—in ways that competitors do not—to take a giant leap forward."
