Utilizing and Integrating Tools for Effective Alliances, Projects and Collaborations

8:30 Plenary Session - Contingency/Scenario Planning with an Alliance Partner

Michael J. Berglund, Manager, Office of Alliance Management, Eli Lilly and Company

There are fewer things in a partnership that will undermine an existing strong relationship between two companies than having to respond to a unexpected issue or material event. How well prepared are your alliances for such events? Are they focused only on successful outcomes, missing the larger risk? Does your alliance have a process to resolve unexpected critical business issues in the public arena? This presentation will explore these questions and many others related to managing real time issues through scenario planning, and share Lilly’s approach to the challenge through practical examples.

1:30 Small Company Perspective: How to Set-up and Implement a Partner Project that Demonstrates Value

Leslie Hickle, Ph.D., Vice President, Business Development, BioAlta

Communication is the main ingredient when a start-up company partners with a large biopharma, especially when the start-up company doesn’t have many resources and needs to rely on the big company’s funding to progress a technology/product. This talk will discuss project details and how a multi-communication level structure was developed. This structure helped to bring along proof of concept where 90% of the mile stones of the project were achieved.

2:00 Agenda Presentation (Sponsorship Available)

2:30 Measuring the Health of Partnership: Do Partners Need Metrics to Evaluate?

Does your organization believe that metrics are needed to evaluate your collaboration? Does your organization focus more on initiating and managing these evaluation processes, sometimes at the expense of the relationship itself? Some biopharma companies believe in the importance of metrics while others don’t. This talk presents a ranking and evaluation of tools and processes that small, medium and large sized partners think are important and not important in measuring the health of a partnership.
