Social Media Risks and Benefits for the Pharmaceuticals Industry Drug makers are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business processes. Social media helps your organization share information and exchange ideas with your customers quickly, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because social media is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. So, what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or doing so without careful planning, can be a costly mistake. Read this paper to gain an understanding of: What the regulatory landscape of the pharmaceuticals industry looks like What concerns you should be aware of f

Bjarte Bogsnes holds the unique distinction of being the only person to have "blown up the budget" at more than one company: at his previous employer, the European plastics manufacturer Borealis, and at his current one, Statoil, the Norwegian oil giant. A dedicated champion of the Beyond Budgeting movement, Bogsnes takes the concept of rolling forecasting-itself a relatively new approach-one big step further, with dynamic forecasting.

Activity-based budgeting has been discussed for some time, but becomes far more practical with a Time Driven Activity-Based-Budgeting (TDABC) model. Using this approach, a company can now link its strategic plan and sales and production forecast to the specific demands for capacity required for implementation. This chapter introduces the powerful new extension of the TDABC model to perform what-if analysis and activity-based budgeting.

In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.

For most retailers, the holidays are a frenzied rush of juggling multiple campaigns, meeting revenue goals, and hitting lofty numbers before the year is up. It’s far from a relaxing time of year. The holiday season has become critically important to online retailers. With the rise of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Green Monday, Super Saturday, and Boxing Day, the definition of “the holidays” has expanded substantially. While these retail days have helped distribute the holiday rush across a wider range, they’ve also made holiday campaign planning far more complex. Expanding digital channels, such as mobile and social media, have added to the immense opportunities that the holidays provide. Just last year, mobile accounted for 50.3% of all e-commerce traffic, surpassed desktop traffic for the first time ever. Knowing this, it shouldn’t be a surprise that 38% of shoppers now say they will not return to a retailer’s website if it’s not mobile optimized.

Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.

Disruptive innovation, new business models, and globalization have accelerated the rate of change for every business. To stay competitive, organizations are revising their business models, product sets, and other critical aspects of their operations on a much more frequent and continuous basis. These organizations realize that real-time strategic planning and performance management are not just “nice to have” but “must have” capabilities. Yet many organizations still struggle to implement these capabilities. As a result, they’re unable to quickly revise their strategies, implement plans, and monitor results.

Incentive compensation represents the potential of delivering optimal sales results. But with up to 60% of sales reps’ income coming from incentive comp, it is crucial to get this right. Our study data has shown that ineffective compensation structures can lead to disengaged reps, high turnover, money left on the table, and low margins. The way we have designed and managed incentive compensation plans in the past may inhibit the sales force and prevent the business from scaling at the needed rate. Modeling and planning quickly become too complex for a spreadsheet-driven exercise.

The concept of integrated business planning — closing gaps in an organization’s various planning functions and aligning operations and strategy with its financial performance — has existed in various forms for decades. What has changed is creation of planning platforms that can handle the fluidity of data to erase silos and enterprise borders where once there were multiple geographies, departments, time zones, languages and currencies. All elements of business are managing the avalanche of information coming to them. Just like connecting disparate people, we also must connect data that resides in various systems, applications and tools.

Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.
