Prescient Advisory

Putting the strategy back into your product strategy.

Product strategy has become a playbook. Too often, clinical development, new product planning and global marketing teams are expected to follow patterns of thinking modeled on repetitive activities and existing knowledge. This prevents them from developing new ways of seeing, understanding and addressing issues specific to their product and its market.

Prescient Advisory partners with you to put strategy back into your product strategy. We combine biopharma expertise, deep market insight and design thinking to maximize the value of your molecule. We help define where to play, how to shape your strategy and how to execute your plans.
