EXPERTISE

SAMPLE ASSIGNMENTS

We help clients align their product development programs with marketplace realities. By engaging in this process early in a product’s history, companies can make critical alterations to a product’s development program and thus achieve both optimal returns on their research investments and more rapid and effective commercial launches.

  • Indication Optimization:  Identify and prioritize the potential indications for an early-stage technology
  • Go/No-Go Analyses:  Identify the “make-or-break” development milestones for an early-stage product candidate
  • Line of Therapy Forecasting:  Characterize the future competitive environment and a drug candidate's potential role in the treatment hierarchy
  • Addressable Market:  Segment, prioritize, quantify, and describe the target physician and patient audiences
  • Product Adoption:  Determine the minimum commercially viable target product profile. Predict how physician prescribing, patient usage, and payer access will vary with base case, upside, and downside target product profile scenarios
  • Product Attribute Analysis: Identify the commercial trade-offs of optimizing one product attribute in lieu of another
  • Optimize Internal and External Investment Decisions: Develop the clinical, reimbursement, and commercial arguments to substantiate major internal investment decisions as well as strategic alliances
