Recurring Problems in Commercial Strategy & Business Development

Contract Research Organizations (CROs) frequently encounter pervasive challenges when navigating the
complex commercial strategy and business development landscape. ILIKOS Consulting Group has identified
these recurring issues as critical areas where our bespoke solutions can make a significant difference

The traditional business development models often come with a hefty price tag, burdening organizations with unsustainable costs and expectations that rarely align with market trends and fluctuations.

The fast-paced and competitive nature of the industry leads to high turnover rates, causing disruptions and inconsistencies in business development efforts.

Many organizations struggle to maintain a disciplined and consistent approach to outreach, resulting in low visibility, missed opportunities, and inefficiencies.

A deep understanding of clinical research principles combined with market dynamics and development trends is crucial for effective business development, yet this expertise is often lacking.

Numerous Contract Research Organizations (CROs) do not position themselves effectively in the market as they lack a proper commercial strategy, thorough market research, and a clear story describing their value proposition.

Failure to properly research the market and craft messaging that resonates with the target audience’s pain points leads to weak positioning and low responsiveness, negatively affecting new pipeline, sales and ultimately, revenue.
