Thank you for requesting Flex Appeal: How a Flexible Approach to Resourcing and Talent Management Keeps Medical Affairs Teams Nimble.
To download a copy of this document, please provide the following basic information:Medical affairs (MA) organizations need to shift their approach to hiring, placement, and development of human resources in a way that is more focused on the portfolio of products, both in the pipeline and on the market. Historically, MA has resourced based on near-term, specialized needs, without a long-term vision around resource growth and retention. However, rather than focusing on deploying highly specialized people in a therapeutic or functional area, MA leaders need to adopt a more flexible approach to resourcing to better manage and allocate resources. This article outlines the flexible resource model for MA, demonstrating how it can be used to align MA capabilities with product needs across the product life cycle. The article also looks at how strategic outsourcing can be leveraged as a component of flexible resourcing and at how talent management can be aligned with flexible resourcing in order to ensure MA organizations are efficient and effective in their operations.
