Tactical, Operational & Strategic Analysis of Markets, Competitors & Industries
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the next event organized by the Swiss Competitive Intelligence Association:
“CI support of early research and the changing roles of the CI specialist”
Andrew White, Novartis
Restaurant Au Premier, room Les Trouvailles
in Zürich’s main station
Tuesday, May 20th at 6:30 PM.
Andrew joined Novartis ten years ago as a Science & Technology Analyst and after two years took over as Competitive Intelligence Manager. Before that, for four years he worked as a Senior Patent Analyst at Thomson Derwent (now Thomson Reuters), therefore he has an information analysis/management background.
Since joining Novartis, Andrew has worked in a group whose key stakeholders include the Project managers, Translational medicine specialists and senior management within Research. His team has undergone a number of reorganizations and the changing roles/behaviours of both the CI specialist and the end user/client and the need to be adaptable is something Andrew will talk about as part of the presentation.
Andrew's group has always supported early research - from the initiation of a new project through to proof-of-concept in early clinical trials - and Andrew will share his experiences from working with early research partners, with a particular focus on projects based on secondary sources and with a limited budget.
Andrew will also discuss how his team along with other CI groups within Novartis have set up a community of practice to share best practices amongst the different groups, and will give advice on how to encourage greater interaction from the client so that a massive amount of information could be turned into something more actionable, into intelligence.
I am sure that every CI professional will find Andrew's insights interesting - even if you have no exposure to pharmaceutical or health care industry.
