Organization and governance

Organization and governance

Strong assets and an intelligent strategy aren’t enough to win in today’s competitive environment. Life sciences companies also need to have the right teams in place with appropriate resources and effective processes guiding their activities. We collaborate with clients to define their organizational needs and ensure that they are addressed in alignment with business strategies.


Define needs

We help clients lay the groundwork for success in a fluid and complex environment:

  • Characterize the external and internal issues
  • Define what will make teams more effective
  • Analyze what customers want and how competitors act
  • Balance growth mandates and resource pressures

Design solutions

We work in close partnership with clients to plot the right course:

  • Develop tailored answers to an organization’s key questions:
    • What does your team aspire to be?
    • What are the critical activities that you must do?
    • What policies, processes, and reporting structures must support these activities?
    • What resources—people and capital—do you need to succeed?
  • Identify innovative, implementable, efficient solutions
  • Gain internal alignment around proposed changes with CRA’s proprietary IMPETUS™ methodology

Monitor and improve

Our partnership with clients continues far beyond initial recommendations:

  • Balance organizational stability with adaptability
  • Track internal performance to anticipate challenges and course-correct
  • Provide effective, ongoing collaboration and guidance
  • Identify further performance improvement opportunities
