Creating a Category Strategy Within Your Organization

Today, we continue our inside look at the Fundamentals of Clinical Outsourcing Certificate Program.  The program will take place March 30-31 at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada.  This program is designed to help those new to the clinical trials industry to  identify and select outsourcing provider based on the needs of the organization and project.

Today, we look at the presentation from Richard Polgar the Director, Global Procurement: R&D at Bristol-Myers Squibb and David Freschi, the Director, Clinical Outsourcing at Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization.

Session Title: How to Create a Category Strategy

About the session: Procurement executives are looking to provide greater value to the enterprise beyond cost reductions, but the players in the pharmaceutical industry can only offer so many savings using traditional ‘strategic sourcing’ methodologies. Category management fundamentally differs from strategic sourcing and builds on the credibility that strategic sourcing professionals have created for themselves over the years. This session discusses what is done internally vs. externally when creating a category strategy within your organization.
