Newer Not Always Better


Pharmaceutical Executive


And what about innovation? Ultimately, companies need to emphasize innovation throughout their businesses, not just in early-stage R&D. Creating efficiencies through new technologies, exploring outsourcing options, and testing more productive organizational models can improve a company's ability to deliver all classes of drugs to market. Jan-Anders Karlsson, formerly of Bayer and now CEO of S*BIO, a Singapore-based biomedical company, put it best: "Innovation is not about new targets, it is about successfully bringing to market a product that meets an unmet medical need."
