Event Overview:

Commercial forecasting in the biopharmaceutical industry always comes with some uncertainty, especially given the ever-evolving life sciences marketplace. Uncertainty arises from multiple sources including innovation across therapy areas such as oncology, immunology and neurology as well as patient population dynamics, access and price. Thus, having the ability to effectively capture, analyze, and develop insights on uncertainty is a key aspect of life sciences forecasting and decision-making.

In this webinar, we’ll learn the tradeoffs between different types of uncertainty analysis - from traditional scenario-based planning to more sophisticated Monte Carlo analysis - and discuss how to effectively present and improve their integration in your organization, using cutting-edge forecasting tools for both singular assets and whole portfolios.

Three Key Take-Aways:
