The Challenge

A notable pharmaceutical company had agreed to co-promote a drug and, in turn, was obligated to provide a list of contractual deliverables to the partner company. Because both teams were fairly new to co-promotion, there were many questions about how to work together most efficiently. The companies needed direction on how best to collaborate while working toward their common goal, despite their differences in operating cultures.

The Solution

CMK Select created and documented a cohesive operating strategy for the alliance by identifying the key stakeholders from both companies and then clearly defining the roles and expectations for each member of the project. This served as a way to ensure that all deliverables were being met, while also promoting an environment of collaboration between the teams. We also recognized a need to boost the profile of the medical teams, who had previously worked mostly behind the scenes and were rarely recognized for their work, to ensure that both sides understood and appreciated the significance of what they brought to the project.

The Results

Because each member of the team understood exactly what was expected of them, they could more efficiently and proactively prepare for all phases of the major launch, including providing status reports and budget updates to team leaders along the way. Having a defined strategy in place also helped with onboarding new team members quickly and seamlessly. Most importantly, however, the new strategy successfully removed barriers that otherwise could have compromised the co-promotional launch process, and it established the proper balance among previously competing priorities to help ensure that all required deliverables were met on time and aligned with budget expectations.
