Improve discovery portfolio decision-making

An improved focus for a broad discovery portfolio through relevant decision-making information and processes


The available resource, budget and value data was more suited to clinical projects, and the leadership team did not have a synthetic and succinct dashboard to track discovery activities


Established the principles, goals and scope of information that the discovery leaders needed to make better decisions

Clarified the sources of relevant information, the areas where qualitative judgement were required, and the processes for creating decision-relevant information

Created a pilot dashboard for use at the discovery leadership team meetings, and initiated the population of the dashboard with relevant data

  • The discovery leadership team used the dashboard routinely to evaluate and track its portfolio and resources across therapeutic areas, modalities, and capabilities
  • Ongoing focused and high quality decision making on priorities and resourcing in order to increase the value of the entire discovery portfolio
