Rob Hockney talks to Fintan Walton about the ongoing evolution of AstraZeneca's alliance management strategy and capabilities, and the increasingly important role that dedicated alliance management plays in the drug development process for big pharma and small biotech companies alike. Rob emphasises the need for flexibility when developing an alliance management strategy and the importance of dialogue between partnering companies. Together, they examine the different metrics by which to measure alliance success and consider how termination does not have to be the end of a potentially profitable relationship. They also discuss the characteristics of an alliance that enables first-class management to make a value-generating difference. In addition, Rob highlights the essential role that alliance management plays in bridging the gap between companies with big differences in size and culture.
