Functions such as market research and competitive intelligence play an important role in informing senior leadership about strategic opportunities and challenges in the marketplace. To be effective, functions involved with making strategic presentations to company leadership must develop executive briefing templates that are clear, concise and impactful.
This study probes winning strategies and critical content elements for effectively informing senior leaders through Competitive Market Landscape Summaries and Clinical Development Profile Maps. In particular, the study explores the critical elements and best formats for two common briefing templates: 1) the Competitive Landscape Summary Map and 2) the Development Landscape Profile Map (often described as the Data Disclosure or Clinical Trials Progress Summary).

SAMPLE KEY FINDINGS
- Always Deliver Competitive Assessments via In-Person Presentations: The only proven way to gain traction with senior leaders, according to almost all survey respondents, is to present competitive assessments in-person, whether through formal executive meetings or in one-on-one appointments. Email can be used to communicate urgent disruptions to the competitive landscape, but should otherwise be avoided – as should intranet postings and other less effective approaches.
- Deliver Competitive Assessment Presentations & Updates Quarterly – Or More Frequently if Necessary: Though 42% currently present competitive assessments every six months, savvy intelligence teams find ways to get in front of key leadership groups more regularly, either through quarterly and monthly meetings or to spotlight urgent changes in the competitive landscape.
