Decision Analysis & Portfolio Management for Biopharma Master Class


HOW THIS MASTER CLASS IS DIFFERENT:

This class begins with well-founded Decision Analysis, economic, and portfolio theory, and quickly moves to practical training in Decision Analysis and Portfolio Management using Excel add-in Decision Tree and portfolio optimization software.

Decision Analysis techniques learned in the master class can be used to facilitate Governance decision-making under conditions of risk and uncertainty while economic and portfolio principles learned can be used during preparations and analysis for portfolio reviews and executive decision-making right away.

Unlike other courses that focus on value creation and project prioritization, this master class utilizes a comprehensive approach to transparent, defensible decision-making and portfolio value maximization using cutting edge portfolio methodologies within a holistic portfolio management framework – CREOPMTM.

Learn how to shape the strategic and financial goals of your company by using compelling and actionable decision Analysis and portfolio analysis to influence corporate decision-makers.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

  • The CREOPMTM framework, a proven, step-by-step approach to positioning R&D portfolios for short-, medium-, and long-term success.
  • Categorize project and program investments into non-discretionary and discretionary buckets.
  • Analyze Risk and assess overall probability of success.
  • Evaluate assets using four critical drivers – benefit, risk, cost, time.
  • Optimize portfolios to make the best use of constrained budgetary and human resources.
  • Prioritize projects using quantitative and qualitative decision criteria.
  • Manage risk, resources and stakeholders and improve decision-making under conditions of risk and uncertainty.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

  • Industry professionals from Pharma, Biotech, Medical Devices, and Consumer Care involved in:
  • Research
  • Clinical Development
  • Project, Program & Portfolio Management
  • Resource Management
  • Forecasting & Competitive Intelligence
  • Marketing
  • Licensing & Business Development
  • Finance

NOTE: Consultants are not permitted to attend. 

Separate registration required. CHI requests that the Master Class not be interrupted once it begins. We ask that attendees commit to attending the entire program so as to not disturb the hands-on style instruction being offered to other participants.
