Sustaining the mindset of innovation
The importance of the pharma industry during the covid-19 pandemic can’t be overstated.
But what is often forgotten is the transformation that the sector had to go through to be able to respond to one of the greatest challenges of our generation. The way traditional pharma companies worked with biotechnology firms and public bodies to share information, conduct trials and collaborate to develop and distribute the covid-19 vaccines serves as evidence of how a collaborative and agile mindset can help drive results that are good for business and society at large.
The question for pharma leaders is how to keep the momentum. How can innovation be sustained through culture and a new mindset? How can cross-industry collaboration become the norm, rather than exception?

The pharmaceutical sector has been under the global spotlight like never before, and further challenges lie ahead. With vaccination programs beginning to level off the COVID-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies may once again find themselves in the eye of the storm, as unlocking delayed treatments and paused clinical trials causes healthcare organisations to experience a sudden surge in demand.
