The Trium Group Helps IT Organization with Transformation Foundation

Elite consultancy facilitates leadership alignment, advancement on functional strategy
Aug. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- SAN FRANCISCO—The Trium Group, the boutique management consulting firm that specializes in organizational transformation and strategy execution, announced it has initiated work helping a global pharmaceutical company’s IT organization prepare for a large-scale outsourcing and transformation program to better serve the broader company’s future needs.

Working with the IT function’s leadership, Trium helped the organization reach a shared understanding of its current reality, get clear and aligned on its vision, develop a transformation story that resonates with key stakeholders, and build early elements of a Strategic Roadmap™ plan. The work also involves laying a foundation for engaging effectively with the new, high-profile vendor that will handle outsourced responsibilities.

For purposes of confidentiality, Trium at this time will not disclose the client’s name nor details that would identify it.

“This organization is smartly embarking on a journey to do what it needs to do—challenging and disruptive as it may be—to better serve the evolving needs of the business,” said Andrew Blum, Trium CEO and Managing Partner.

“We commend the leaders here for acting to get their ducks in a row internally, having the tough conversations to get truly and fully aligned on the path forward, and ensuring the rest of the organization is as ready as the leaders.”

The global pharmaceutical industry faces an array of challenges including need to serve a broader set of customers with increasingly specific requirements, evolving regulations and health practices around the world, and rising costs for developing new blockbuster drugs as older drugs lose patent protection. Within this difficult landscape, Trium’s client must transform how it serves internal stakeholders in order to support the organization with greater speed, flexibility, and cost-efficiency.

Trium Partner Brad Sutton is leading the engagement with a close-knit team of Trium consultants.

“Information technology is increasingly strategic in healthcare,” said Sutton, “because breakthrough ideas in years to come will necessarily come from business leaders and scientists seeing information about patients, providers, and payers in fresh ways that lead to new insights. More is required of IT organizations and in particular their leaders to deliver, manage, and protect that information—that is what the transformation at hand is all about.”
