APRIL 2019 Research Alert

This month we added five new studies to the Best Practice Database, the research repository for Best Practices, LLC. This month's new studies involve two areas: Lifecycle Management and Oncology Field Medical Teams. The three studies involving Lifecycle Management examine multiple aspects of how organizations are trying to squeeze additional revenue out of mature products; one of the studies deals with the cost, time, and ROI of different lifecycle strategies, the second study focuses on mature and legacy product management and the third lifecycle study is focused on success factors and barriers to key strategies for maximizing mature brands. Meanwhile, the two Oncology Field Medical Teams studies have the overarching goal of improving the impact of oncology-focused field medical teams. The two studies looking into this issue deal with staffing, thought leader engagement, managing field activities, and more.

The new Best Practices, LLC studies listed below under Newly Added Research explore how leading companies have made their operations more effective across these different areas.
