Knowledge Management & Pharma Industry

Date: 08/08/2014

By: Sue White

What part is Knowledge Management playing and going to play in the vital Pharmaceutical international industry?

Blending the authors’ considerable experiences with those of interviewees and with their retrospective and forward-looking perspectives, this volume explains how to apply Knowledge Management in a variety of environments in order to achieve improved efficiency, better decision making and enhanced innovation.

This is achieved by exploring Knowledge Management tools and techniques within the changing landscape of the pharmaceutical industry.

‘This isn't just a book describing the theory of knowledge management, but rather an illustration of how it can be applied to the real, challenging world of the pharmaceutical industry. For those attempting to improve ways of working collaboratively in pharma, look here for some practical and pre-tested ideas, even if a formal KM strategy is already in place.’  - Alison Zartarian, AstraZeneca
