In today's complicated markets, where customer power is rapidly increasing, delivering more value means greater market share.
Understanding how to create greater value is the critical capability that drives more effective allocation of resources. Leveraging
new technology in new ways enables this to occur.
Accomplishing all of this requires a comprehensive, strategic approach to change, including evaluating potential sales and
marketing innovations in light of the company's long term strategy and its future commercial focus with respect to practitioners,
patients, and payers. Those companies that can quickly anticipate and capably address the changing needs of select customer
groups are likely to achieve leadership position in their core therapy areas.
