TOPIC: ‘The speciation of new business models in the life sciences industry.’

Professor Brian D Smith, of Bocconi and Hertfordshire Universities, is the world’s leading authority on the evolution of the life sciences market.  With 20 years in the industry, he has spent two decades advising many leading firms and studying how they are adapting to a changing environment.

In this webinar, Professor Smith will discuss his new book Darwin’s Medicine, which is the sequel to his influential and critically acclaimed Future of Pharma. This book explores the drivers of industry change and how leading pharmaceutical and medical technology companies are adapting their strategies, structures, and capabilities in practice.

Through the lens of evolutionary science, Professor Smith explores the speciation of new business models in the Life Sciences Industry. This sophisticated and highly original approach offers insights into:

  • The mechanisms of evolution in this exceptional industry
  • The six great technological and social shifts that are shaping its landscape;
  • The emergence of 26 distinct, new business models; 
  • The lessons that enable firms to direct and accelerate their own evolution.

These insights map out the industry’s complex and changing landscape and provide an invaluable guide to companies seeking to survive and thrive in this dynamic market.
