The future of the life sciences industries
Transformation amid rising risk
The future of the life sciences industries: Transformation amid rising risk is a Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu (DTT) white paper developed in collaboration with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). The findings and views expressed in this report are drawn from a global survey and individual interviews conducted with industry leaders.
During 2008, DTT and EIU professionals conducted a global online survey of 360 senior executives in the life sciences industries. The survey asked executives to predict the level of change their companies will undergo in the future to address growing risk, and what areas would face the highest growth in risk. The survey also examined how companies will increase proficiency and deal with rising risks in these areas, as well as how they would manage internal and external risk. Concurrently, we conducted individual interviews with board level executives in the life sciences and healthcare industries.
