“Strategy, Transformation, and Value Realization”

What is R&D Business Architecture? Combining experience across all aspects of the R&D pipeline from a value-creation, risk-limiting perspective.   Applying “point solutions” in the R&D process is like having a plumber design and build your entire house.   Architecture brings in an awareness and mastery of the complex interplay of the clinical, CMC, discovery, commercialization processes and related expertise, as well as information and operational excellence.  This blog will address the many components of R&D that create or limit value creation, along with insights and learnings, and an open discussion of those findings.  Please contact Terry McCormick at the e-mail below if the discussion suggests we can help you with your R&D problems or marginal performance.
