Project Portfolio Management in the Pharma Sector


This course will focus on three project portfolio management models developed by Pharmaceutical companies from around the world. After a brief introduction to project portfolio management you will be presented with an overview of the Pharmaceutical industry including the current state of affairs, trends and forecasts. Next, we will examine the following cases:

  • European Pharmaceutical Company One
  • European Pharmaceutical Company Two
  • European Pharmaceutical Company Three

We will describe company challenges, resulting strategies, scoring, portfolio balance and strategic alignment models. At the end of the workshop we will attempt to compare the PPM models created by the organizations in question and examine whether they align with the overall industry outlook.

Target Audience:

  • Project and program managers who run projects and supply executives with key information
  • C-level executives who should be making the ultimate “Go/Kill” decisions
  • Functional department directors and managers who are responsible for providing project resources
  • Sales and Marketing people who interact with customers and gather their feedback and requirements
  • Directors of PMO (Director of Project Management, Portfolio Manager, etc.) who are typically responsible for implementing portfolio management
