The Life Sciences industry operates in a heavily regulated and highly competitive environment. The industry is facing many challenges ranging from funding to cost cutting requirements as well as IP protection in a global marketplace. A value chain story is more defendable when it captures the true essence of the business dynamics, is grounded in the reality of the business and tied to the same measurements across key performance indicators relating to the stakeholders and of a life sciences company such as funding, innovation, commercialization, organization, and reputation, all for the long-term benefit of patients, clinicians, employees, and shareholders.
