The Pharma CI Conference & Exhibition is the largest assembly of senior level pharma, biotech, and device professionals seeking the latest news and the chance to network with all the industry’s luminaries.
Members of our Life Sciences team will be at our booth to find out how we can address your competitive intelligence and strategy development needs in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, and diagnostics industries. David Staknis, Ph.D., Principal, Global Life Sciences Practice Head will be giving a talk on Protecting Institutional CI Memory on Friday, February 19th (details after the jump).
Protecting Institutional CI Memory:
What to Do in an Environment of Mergers, Acquisitions and Spinoffs
David Staknis, Ph.D., Global Life Sciences Practice Head, Fuld+Company
CI provides an objective viewpoint on the external environment for an organization’s decision makers. Lack of continuity in CI process and distribution disrupts this viewpoint, negatively impacting decision support and strategic planning.
Losing institutional CI memory also leads to redundancy in intelligence gathering efforts, as practitioners retread ground already covered by their predecessors. While this inefficiency is frustrating in itself, its consequences spread beyond the CI department, leading to opportunity loss, lessened threat defense, and higher risk.
Drawing on real-world examples, David Staknis, Ph.D., identifies common causes of CI loss and what companies have done to prevent it. Practical suggestions are tailored for each type of scenario your firm might face, from corporate downsizing to transition of key personnel to new positions. While the talk presents issues that cause lapses in institutional CI memory, it is not a theoretical discussion. Instead, this talk will provide proven tactics that can be readily implemented by attendees.
