Strategies for the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industries

The Big Pivot: Innovation for the Unpredictable, Expensive, and Digital World of Pharmaceutical and Health

Based on his new book, The Big Pivot, Andrew Winston, a globally recognized speaker and business strategy expert, lays out a new vision for business in fundamentally changed world.  Some critical mega-trends are changing “business as usual”: deep demographic shifts, resource constraints (that raise prices for nearly every input into the economy), climate change and extreme weather, and, most importantly, radical transparency driven by big data and new technologies that connect us all – consumers and retailers can now ask and answer a range of questions about every product, where it came from, who made it, and how big an impact it has on the world.

But these challenges also offer unprecedented opportunities: multi-trillion-dollar markets are in play and the winners of this new game will profit mightily.

In a unique and entertaining way, Winston’s talk for the dynamic pharma industry…
