Building a Disruptive Innovation Ecosystem in a Large, Mature Pharma Organization – From Idea to Implementation – BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM USA


The life-sciences and healthcare industry observes the arrival of “Pharma 3.0” somewhat puzzled.  It comes with fundamental changes to the business environment under the new paradigm of outcomes focus and patient centricity.  
Large pharmaceutical organizations struggle to find and harness new opportunities.  Holding on to the traditional business model of “pushing pills” too tightly, they risk being steamrolled if they cannot adapt to the new environment and implement transformational changes quickly.

How do you change a mature organization with its established culture, structures and processes? In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Overcome disruptive approaches by building an effective and proven innovation ecosystem
  • Build an ecosystem that shifts the innovation mindset including intrapreneuring, open innovation and internal corporate venturing to shortcut the processes and re-introduce agility
