Improving Knowledge and Understanding
The gap in pharma forecasting knowledge and understanding appears to be increasing. Yet the availability of up to date pharmaceutical forecasting training is limited.
Pharma forecasting is a business-critical activity, yet many clients tell us they lack confidence and that the task is time consuming and unenjoyable.
Brand Managers, Researchers, Analysts and even forecasters feel under pressure to choose the right method, the most appropriate data and struggle to communicate and engage their audiences with their forecasts.
The changes in therapies by line, indication and patent and new products entering the market more quickly than before put increasing pressure on all involved in creating the forecast.
Forecasting has become more and more important in recent years and has slowly crept into many different job roles within a variety of pharmaceutical organisations. Consequently, forecasting does not form a part of the core skill set for all individuals whose responsibility it now falls to.
Yet pressure remains to develop, populate and communicate several types of forecasting models and approaches to get to the all important ‘magic number.’
