In today’s marketplace, it is becoming more and more attractive,
and in some cases an imperative, for companies to hire out what
are considered non-differentiating capabilities. Functions such as
validation, quality, reporting and analytics are generally deemed
necessary or supporting, but not strategically important when it
comes to a pharma or device company’s core mission of delivering
lifesaving products to market.
Life sciences organizations are turning to innovative sourcing
models as they seek to optimize resources and reduce costs,
while ensuring successful business outcomes. Ultimately,
they are looking for ways to be flexible and agile as it relates
to ancillary ongoing operational or recurring functions. They
desire to align with a lean organization where they are optimizing
internal talent, and efficiently leveraging partners to focus on
strategic priorities and activities that are not considered the
organization’s core competencies.
