Pharma Market Research Evolving to Fit Changing Healthcare Industry Dynamics
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – July 22, 2011 – Leading pharmaceutical and biotech organizations understand the value of using Market Research to inform their strategic planning and operational tactics across numerous functions.
As companies evolve, Market Research must also adapt and develop new capabilities in order to support intelligent planning and innovative business decision making.
Two areas where Market Research leaders anticipate providing more support in the future are new product development and strategic planning, according to research from Best Practices, LLC.
"The Future of Market Research: Challenges and Changes in a Core Pharmaceutical Function" provides executives and managers working in Market Research and business intelligence areas with forward-looking insights around critical Market Research topics.
Sample key findings from this report include:
