On stopping the silos:

Commercialization is not about discreet disciplines. At Merck, I have been able to see into different parts of the company and see the value that can be created when all the divisions are synchronized—when you have teams that are aligned around objectives, sharing the same measures of success, holding each other accountable, and working together to solve complex problems.
