Our Courses

Our courses help managers in R&D, BD&L, Regulatory Affairs, Marketing & Sales and other areas to better understand the complex business issues of R&D:

  • How to consider all the product development options for a given project, and how to pick the best option
  • How to assess risks earlier and mitigate them better
  • How to make better investment decisions on project and product portfolios
  • How to determine whether to bring in R&D partners

We offer three types of programmes:

Risky Business can be played across all levels – from the executive board to operational functions – to sharpen strategic thinking.
