Summary

Table of Contents




The long-standing, universal model of the pharma sales force has been declared dead. Selling products today is much more complicated than simply putting an army of sales reps on the street and directing them to pursue prescribing physicians. But what is the new model?


Reshaping the Pharma Sales Force: A blueprint for contemporary sales and service models explains why there is no new model — and shouldn’t be — and how to succeed in this brave new world where customer centricity and customisation are critical. Contributors include executives from Bayer, Genentech, Grünenthal, Lundbeck U.K., Pediapharm, Pfizer, and more.







Top Takeaways

How to optimise sales reps’ performance through custom sales force design.
Insights from your competitors’ experiments with sales force size and structure.
How to ensure sales force effectiveness in an environment in which reps must endure and surmount the challenges of constant change.
Meeting stakeholders’ needs and requirements through exacting alignment of sales resources.
Using CSOs strategically to help fill gaps in the multichannel environment and afford sales teams a critical measure of flexibility



Key Issues Explored

Why you should abandon your search for the right sales force model right now.
Where and how to begin devising the best possible blend of sales teams for your unique company and its unique markets.
Smart approaches for building essential flexibility into your sales organisation.
How and why to employ the art of continuous change.
The arguments for, and against, KAM.
Why it’s wrong to think the old sales model must be abandoned.
The new importance of training and transparency.
The all-important relationship between external alignment and internal alignment.
Your company is a unique organisation with unique products and stakeholders. Your sales force must be unique, too.
Forget what you used to know. Customer centricity/alignment with key stakeholders is the new organising principle for pharma sales forces.
