Life sciences R&D executives hint at untapped potential for advanced operating models to help their function address strategic enterprise challenges.
About the research
In 2014, Genpact commissioned a research project conducted by an independent research firm. The goal was to assess the potential for new operating models across a wide spectrum of industry sectors and functions. More than 900 senior-level executives completed the survey. Respondents were screened based on their ability to materially influence functional decisions.
This analysis complements other research and insight derived from Genpact’s experience designing, transforming and operating business processes and operations.
This document presents findings drawn from senior executives from the life sciences industry, and focuses on 120 respondents engaged in R&D (life sciences commercial operations is the subject of a separate report). The R&D respondents are mostly located in North America and come predominantly from companies with more than 10,000 employees (Figure 1).
