Our client, a global pharmaceutical organisation, had acquired another major pharma biotech in a multi-billion-pound transaction. We were asked to help the commercial and medical organisation to define their new, integrated operating model and quickly transition acquired staff into the new ways of working.

We designed the future state organisation and integration roadmap via a series of strategic workshops with global stakeholders and established a robust governance structure across global and local teams. We also set up an assurance process to manage integration readiness across all markets, as well as working closely with local teams to ensure integration readiness across complex functions including HR, finance and regulatory.

The commercial and medical organisation integrated successfully as planned. An especially high level of engagement was found in the European regional implementation, with the overall approach setting the best-practice benchmark for other functions to follow.

Gate One worked excellently with our team, delivering high-quality outputs and bringing a positive, proactive mindset and creative new approaches to help us tackle complex integration issues.
