    The success of a pharmaceutical company relies on effective portfolio management and resource planning. Increasing amounts of drug discoveries and commercially available therapies have forced pharmaceutical companies to re-evaluate their portfolio successes. Changing regulations and government compliance has also posed a threat to successful resource planning and portfolio management. It is now more important than ever for methods and processes to be put in place to ensure all projects are being evaluated and company assets are being leveraged to their fullest potential.

    Why Should You Attend?
    This conference will focus on the future direction of portfolio management and resource planning, along with the effects that regulations have on processes and challenges of forecasting for resource planning.

    The 2013 edition will cover five main areas:
    1. The current landscape of portfolio management and resource planning and preparing for regulatory impacts
    2. Utilizing internal resources to strengthen portfolio strategy
    3.
    Processes to achieve a balanced portfolio
    4.
    Leveraging software vendors and contract research organizations (CRO) to improve portfolio management
    5. The future of portfolio management and resource planning

    Attendees will benefit from a dynamic peer-to-peer presentation format consisting of workshops, interactive panel discussions and case studies. Each network and interactive session will be followed by 10-15 minutes of Q&A affording all in attendance an opportunity to get the answers to questions affecting their business. Moreover, 4+ hours of networking opportunities will supply attendees with benchmarking and best practices sharing amongst their peers.
