  • Commercial assessment of a new immunotherapy

    Commercial assessment of a new immunotherapy

    21.09.2016

    We conducted secondary research to explore the current sepsis market and the current and future competitive landscape.

    Situation

    As part of due diligence on a potential in-licensing target, we were asked to provide an independent expert view on the commercial potential for an innovative treatment for severe sepsis.

    This required us to:

    • assess the size of the targeted severe sepsis population, diagnosis and treatment rate
    • understand the current treatment patterns, unmet needs and expectations and opportunities for new treatments
    • review the current and future competitive landscape
    • test potential target product profiles
    • develop potential pricing, access and uptake scenarios for the different target product profiles(TPPs)
    • establish revenue potential based on the different scenarios
    • highlight the critical success factors and risks

    The geographic scope included France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, the US and Japan.

    Approach

    We conducted secondary research to explore the current sepsis market and the current and future competitive landscape. We then undertook primary research with payers and key opinion leaders to address any gaps in our research, to test potential TPPs and to gain external validation on potential pricing, access and uptake scenarios.

    Outcome

    We delivered our top-line findings on the critical areas for commercial success in an executive presentation. In addition, we supplied a detailed report of the research findings, including feedbackabout the actions the client should take to maximize the commercial potential of the asset.

    Driving informed investment decisions for a new treatment

    21.09.2016

    We collected extensive information on disease prevalence, diagnosis and treatment guidelines and the pricing and reimbursement landscape through desk research in the EU5

    Situation

    Before taking an in-licensing decision for a new drug targeting primary biliary cirrhosis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, our client wanted to assess the commercial opportunity for the treatment. This required us to:

    • assess the size of the target population, the competitive landscape and the target product profile
    • evaluate the willingness to pay for new treatments, potential price opportunity, diagnosis and treatment rates, target treatment population size and likely market share
    • obtain actionable recommendations and a revenue forecast model to inform its decision

    Approach

    We collected extensive information on disease prevalence, diagnosis and treatment guidelines and the pricing and reimbursement landscape through desk research in the EU5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK) and the USA.

    Then, we used this information to develop primary research materials, including prereading material and a discussion guide and subsequently interviewed key opinion leaders, physicians and payers in the scope markets.

    Finally, we built a forecast model based on realistic assumptions of market performance.

    Outcome

    Our final forecast model and report covered multiple scenarios for the drug we assessed.
    This enabled our client to make an informed investment decision.

  • Simulating the future market for inflammatory disease biosimilars

    Simulating the future market for inflammatory disease biosimilars

    21.09.2016

    Our client wanted to help affiliates in eight countries to better understand the threats and opportunities this evolving competitive landscape will bring in the years ahead.

    Situation

    Two opposing forces are shaping drug prices in the inflammatory disease market: the downwards pressure from biosimilars and upwards pricing aspirations of bio-betters. Our client wanted to help affiliates in eight countries to better understand the threats and opportunities this evolving competitive landscape will bring in the years ahead.

    Approach

    We designed, planned and facilitated a series of country-specific, interactive war games tosimulate the evolution of the inflammatory disease market landscape over several cycles.

    These sessions helped to increase awareness and deliver insights to the pharma company’s affiliates in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. We also identified strategies and tactics, including risk mitigation, to maximizecommercial success in the target markets.

    Outcome

    We delivered country-specific reports to our client’s affiliate teams to help them understand how pricing and market dynamics are likely to evolve in the years ahead. In addition, we synthesized the lessons from each war game into a Europe-wide learning package.

    Our client now has a consolidated set of learnings that are helping them validate the opportunities for, and threats to, their European strategy.

  • Enhancing in-store experiences across 17 markets for a telecoms company

    Enhancing in-store experiences across 17 markets for a telecoms company

    20.09.2016

    We helped our client assess the global performance of its new retail concept and customer service strategy as well as to create plans to address markets where execution fell short of expectations. 

    Situation

    Our client was launching a new retail store concept and customer service strategy with the aim of delivering consistent service across all its markets. The new concept was designed to offer an enhanced consumer journey across all in-store touchpoints and we conducted mystery shopping to assess how consistently the strategy was executed across 17 countries.

    Approach

    We carried out mystery shops at 6,000 stores around the world to track the deployment of the new strategy during the initial rollout period. Our mystery shoppers either asked for information about how to switch to our client’s network or made a basic after-sales enquiry. The program assessed all aspects of the in-store experience, from the physical point of sales presence to how store staff interacted with clients when trying to close a sale.

    Outcome

    We generated an overall retail experience picture for each market, scenario and store type, which in turn helped us create an ongoing benchmark for execution of the new store concept. We also created action plans to improve performance in markets that were not executing well on the new strategy. The client tracked performance of its stores via an interactive web portal and our research showed how factors such as demo devices, staff enthusiasm and the appeal of the store environment affected customer satisfaction. It also provided evidence that shopper satisfaction was higher in stores where the new concept was deployed.
