Strategic Resource Management

Resource Planning and Agile Capacity Management Strategies to Align with Portfolio Prioritization

November 17-18, 2022

 

The ebb and flow of the drug development timeline presents huge challenges to the biopharma R&D community in terms of resource management, forecasting, and capacity planning. To manage the inherent risks of delays and product failure, companies must develop efficient performance planning, intelligent partnering, and data analytics to create and sustain agile resource management systems that align with portfolio priorities. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s and the BioPharma Strategy Series’ 20th Annual Strategic Resource Management: Resource Planning and Agile Capacity Management Strategies to Align with Portfolio Prioritization attracts over 100 senior R&D executives sharing best practices and new ideas on how to enhance R&D productivity, forecasting, and planning with important discussions on optimizing resource management, vendor partnering, organizational models and business processes.

 

We are looking for new case studies from pharma, biotech, and medical device. Companies with mature and immature portfolios and with varying approaches and systems for resource management are encouraged to share specific lessons with this enthusiastic community. We are looking for implementation stories and lessons learned. Co-presentations featuring speakers from different departments involved in the project are encouraged.

 

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

 

  • Capacity planning in a resource-constrained environment
  • Understanding the impact of partnerships and co-development deals on resource management
  • Leveraging machine learning in resource forecasting
  • Overcoming the fundamental challenges of resource planning for novel modalities/new cell & gene therapy lines
  • Planning ‘accelerated’ and ‘standard’ project timeline scenarios and
  • Prioritizing resources to align with project priorities and timelines
  • Evolving methods of partnering more effectively with strategic partners
  • How to estimate and budget for non-project resources
  • Structure, processes, and criteria for building out portfolio capabilities

 

The deadline for priority consideration is May 6, 2022.

 

All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
