global operating model for rapid growth


Developed a global operating model with regional, country and local level customizations for a leading pharmaceutical company that maximized its competitive differentiation for rapid growth in each of its major market.


The company had grown rapidly with offices in major cities in the world. The international offices primarily served as the distribution channels for the U.S. centric products. The competition was increasingly eroding the company’s market share in some key markets. The CEO asked us to review the international operations and recommend a model that would help spur rapid growth internationally.
