Leading biopharma companies differentiate their treatments through savvy thought leader engagement engagement practices – from very early development stages through post-market entry. Forward-thinking organizations have built highly coordinated, technologically-enabled, and data-backed thought-leader management systems to nurture the right relationships with the right thought leaders at the right times.

Best Practices, LLC undertook this benchmarking research to help Medical Affairs leaders develop optimal thought-leader management systems across key program dimensions. This report enables leaders to improve performance and make better decisions by helping them assess the impact of the structure, administration, internal communication, coordination, engagement, identification, technology enablement and performance measurement of their thought-leader management systems.

  • Key components of thought-leader identification, engagement and services
  • Technology enablement for thought-leader management

Key Findings

Select key insights uncovered from this report are noted below. Detailed findings are available in the full report.

  • Structure: Decentralized Thought Leader Management structures are the most frequent (49%), but are often rife with poor communication and coordination. Most experts identify Hybrid or Centralized structures as optimal (97% combined).
  • Communication: Frequent and standardized direct communication is essential for success, while over-reliance on databases fosters internal misalignment.
  • Identification, Engagement, Services: Profiling is more critical to identifying thought leaders than other methods (Mapping, etc.). Clinical involvement (Trials, ad boards, IITs) is most valued by thought leaders industry wide.
