The Life Sciences market, both within and beyond the German-speaking world, is shaped on the one hand by strong consolidations caused by international mergers or a focus on core areas of expertise. On the other hand, diversifications occur, for example in the shape of investments by classical pharmaceutical companies in biotechnology companies. At the same time, reform processes in the healthcare sector are leading to a fall in global prices and changing prescription requirements, resulting in the generic drugs and OTC markets playing an increasingly key role. Opportunities and risks are closely linked; thus some young biotechnology companies hit the heights whilst others become expensive flops.
As a management consultancy firm, we must adapt to these particular requirements in order to be able to make the right personnel decisions for executive and specialist positions. The field spans from basic research to marketing to the outsourced contract manufacturing. Legal aspects also play a key role here: from intellectual property / patent protection to licence questions or product liability and litigation risks, which we are geared towards in our Life Sciences practice.
When put together, these factors lead to particular requirements for executives and specialists in the field of Life Sciences. They are: a strategic and international outlook; developing and communicating visions; interdisciplinary and transfrontier investment and project management; portfolio, budget and risk management; and a high sensitivity to quality.
All of this demands quite special expertise, experience and potential – including for Ising International Consulting – in order to live up to the market requirements. Ising has been successfully serving renowned healthcare companies in the Life Sciences practice group for many years.
You can put your trust in our expertise, experience and contacts within the market.
