Assessing the Challenges and Value of Sponsor-CRO Strategic Partnerships

with Jonathan Hughes, Partner, Outsourcing & Supply Chain Management Practice Leader, Vantage Partners

CHI recently interviewed Jonathan Hughes, Partner and Practice Lead of Outsourcing and Supply Chain Management at Vantage Partners about the evolution of Sponsor-CRO strategic partnerships to date; challenges and opportunities in forming these types of partnerships; and an outlook on how these partnerships will continue to evolve.

Discussion points and questions include:

1. Can you tell us a bit about yourself and the role you play at Vantage?
2. Forming strategic alliances with CROs has not traditionally been the route sponsors have taken. Why has this changed and where are we now? Also, how have sponsors and CROs adapted over the years?
3. What are some of the unforeseen risks and benefits of moving beyond a traditional customer-vendor relationship?
4. During the upcoming Strategic Alliance Management Congress Vantage will be hosting a luncheon workshop focused on managing sponsor-CRO partnerships. Can you give us any insights as to what attendees can expect to learn during this?
5. We like to end our podcasts with an outlook. In your opinion, how will Sponsor-CRO relationships continue to evolve?
