The Life Sciences and Biotechnology sector is currently going through a major transitional phase. While most large biotech companies were able to survive difficult economic conditions (including the 2008/09 global financial crisis), companies continue to face challenges with government funding for the near-mid future as well as increasing regulatory pressures.
Firms poised to do well in this challenging environment will need to increase efficiency (including capital efficiency), a more robust R&D approach, faster go-to-market time frames and more creative frameworks for funding and partnership.
Research also shows that the industry is going through a massive talent crisis so much so that 75% of CEOs in life sciences & biotechnology firms are searching for talent in different sectors. While top and senior level talent pool is eroding, there is also a serious drain in new-entrant talent pool where only 10% of millennials continue to stay long-term in the industry compounded by the lack of necessary soft & technical skills/expertise.
There is a dire need for current and new leaders who are able to operate decisively in a dynamic and fast-changing environment, able to drive change & innovation while being able to relate and enthuse millenials.
