Within the pharmaceutical industry there is a growing emphasis on alliances and collaboration with external organizations driven by the need to access innovation, fill product pipelines, and develop companion diagnostics. While alliances are not new to the industry, increasing efforts to forge partnerships with diagnostic companies, venture capitalists, government and academic research centers, present unfamiliar challenges for creating operational harmony. Importantly, the alliance management function operates as a central driver for value generation between partnering organizations; alleviating perturbations, while striving to meet alliance goals. Each partnership is different, but managers need proven tools, methods and leadership skills to create a successful, harmonious relationship between organizations. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's 10th Annual Strategic Alliance Management Congress, May 6-8, 2013, brings together alliance management, business development, technology transfer and licensing professionals, to network, share experiences, discuss case studies, and learn what components cultivate successful partnerships. Join us in Philadelphia, as we meet the challenges of collaboration with a decade of advancing alliance management!
