"Agile" R&D Leaders Lab

Are you an R&D Leader in the global life science community?

Agile innovation methods have revolutionized information technology. Over the past 25 to 30 years they have greatly increased success rates in software development, improved quality and speed to market, and boosted the motivation and productivity of IT teams.

Now agile methodologies—which involve new values, principles, practices, and benefits and are a radical alternative to command-and-control-style management—are spreading across a broad range of industries and functions including the C-suite.

Pharma and Biotech who notoriously are slow to change and who are rooted in the linage of academic institutions, have not embraced, or sometimes not even heard, the word agile. With the introduction of new technologies, such as AI and Digital Tech, R&D leaders have to be ever more flexible and creative to engage with these new concepts where necessary. Also by focusing on the needs of the group, we will develop peer to peer discussions around any challenging topics the group have, such as funding and strategic partnersips.

As an R&D Leader you will benefit from this "Agile" workshop and it will help you build deeper connection with your peers. In turn the aim is to build your confidence when working in areas normally outside your comfort zone, by learning and discussions with this "Agile" peer network. You can speak to people in your position about issues you may not have opportunity to discuss else where.
