We provide our clients with a full range of strategic services across three core practice areas. GAC works with clients to define the needs for each engagement, and recommends the elements from across the service areas that will be most effective in meeting project objectives.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES INCLUDE:
When you need strategic planning assistance either for comprehensive strategy development or process facilitation, we recommend tapping into Strategy. The services are designed to address the needs of corporate, franchise, therapeutic areas, as well as those in product strategy development.
Many clients engage us to conduct a thorough strategic plan every three years. Others engage us post-acquisition to develop an integrated strategy. Some request our strategic expertise for a business with a R&D and on-market product portfolio that needs to be optimized with appropriate resources and returns.
We aim to deliver more than a financial projection, but a thoughtful strategy married to financial forecast and milestones over 3, 5, 10 or 15 years. Many clients have utilized these services to refocus the overall business or plan for new products and portfolios. We are recognized for honing in on viable market opportunities, defining the real product value drivers, and building strategic scenarios that allow us to model and examine alternative futures. Understanding the levers and trade-offs between scenarios enables selection and aligned decisions.
To create meaningful strategic plans, we scrutinize existing data, identify and perform marketing research, and build economic models. We work with our clients to utilize their resident knowledge and then advance the “known” through solid data, analytics, research interpretation, and planning expertise. Upon declaring and communicating the strategic plan the next important step is developing an implementation roadmap with timelines, milestones, and performance metrics. GAC aids many companies in this critical step toward achieving their strategic aspirations.
Business Intelligence is a broad range of marketing research and intelligence techniques that allow for patient, clinician, thought leader, innovators, and business expertise to be systematically gathers, analyzed, interpreted, and summarized to deliver the “so what’s.” We often incorporate these services while building strategic plans, but some client contract for the marketing research or expert panels independently.
We have developed a proprietary approach to conduct environmental scans of particular markets where we can track trends, competitor actions to draw implications and insights. Additionally, we have devised novel methods to examine the viability and impact of innovation. We incorporate secondary and primary research with facilitation of Expert Panels. These culminate into a clearer view of the future environment in which our clients may chose to lead or participate in.
This service is designed for four types of transaction needs:
- those pursuing acquisitions and want expert, objective evaluation of products, business unit or company candidates
- those wanting a justifiable business valuation in preparing for the sale of a business, product line, or product
- those seeking products, innovation, or technology
- those seeking partners or investors
GAC’s team of industry experts are available to perform both technical and market due diligence. Many of our clients engage us to assess product development & regulatory plans; test commercial assumptions and financial viability, and identify upside or downside projections.
