The pharma industry is currently undergoing a major transformation. Digitalization leads to substantial changes of companies and products at an ever-faster pace. New competitors originating from the tech industry as well as intensified cost pressure characterize the market nowadays. Top managers, strategists and digitalization managers, especially within the global pharma corporations, are preparing for the transformation. Operations related functions such as production, maintenance, supply chain management and quality are becoming essential to fulfill the increasingly sophisticated customer and patient needs. This requires not only highly effective structures and processes but also innovative leadership approaches.
