Day One – Tuesday 17th March

Tuesday, March 17th, 2020


11:30 AM Case Study - Marginal gains: How to apply AI and automation in a start small, fail fast environment to forge a path to strategic freedom

·         Identifying areas for automation within your business: Where are humans spending too much time on low value tasks?
·         Assessing where there is a need for automation, rather than a want, to ensure genuine business impact and not ‘digital for the sake of digital’
·         Understanding the key components required for a successful digitalisation business case
·         Highlighting the data you already have and acquiring the data you will need to ensure future success
·         Exploring genuine examples of automation within RFPs, P2P and contract approvals to make small but significant changes to the way you work
·         Examining how best to repurpose your workforce to focus on strategic and high-value tasks in the wake of increased automation

3:00 PM Creative Boardroom - How can CPOs ensure that their organisations are modernising technological capabilities to deliver greater patient outcomes?

  • Is the pharmaceutical industry, as a whole, doing enough to adopt disruptive technologies, such as AI, RPA, Blockchain and Cloud Computing?
  • Where can CPOs draw inspiration from to understand what is possible for them and their organisations?
  • What experiences of successful digital transformations within pharma can be shared and learned from?
  • Putting your neck on the line: What are the key ingredients to a successful business case for emerging technologies?
  • Where else within the business can CPOs create alliances to drive digital transformation forwards?
  • How can the procurement community as a whole help to push this agenda and ensure that sceptics are converted, and new technologies are applied to deliver true value?
