Partnerships Session Spotlight: Offshoring or OffPartnering? Making the Right Choice to Weather the Storm of Strategic Partnerships

There is an  increasing amount of clinical trial work being outsourced overseas.  At Partnerships in Clinical Trials, we'll address whether these outsourcing models truly increase efficiency or just save costs on the surface and still act as transactional relationships. In the session "Offshoring or OffPartnering? Making the Right Choice to Weather the Storm of Strategic Partnerships," the presenters will cover the critical step of choosing the right vendor, evaluating a strategic partner rather than a tactical partner, and how to align incentives moving forward.

Featured Session: Offshoring or OffPartnering? Making the Right Choice to Weather the Storm of Strategic Partnerships

Featured Speakers:  Scott Thistlewaite, Director, Global Pharmaceutical R&D Sourcing, Janssen Pharmaceutical R&D

Suresh Sharma, Business Relationship Head for TCS-J&J Clinical Services, TATA Consultancy Services

About the session: Pharmaceutical companies are under tremendous pressure to reduce spending and optimize the entire R&D process on a global scale. While off-shoring of core/non-core clinical research and development work is one of the ways to reduce costs, there are extensive analyses to be done before choosing the right partner to take your clinical trial processes to the next level. This case study session focuses on:
  • • Identifying the difference between a ‘vendor’ and a ‘partner’ selecting the correct partner, analyzing what a strategic partner means for a sponsor company and evaluating a vendor who can be a strategic partner
  • • Aligning the goals and objectives of both sponsor & partner to ensure partnering success
  • • Co-innovation & vision for transforming the partnership
  • • Successful partnership models and critical success factor
