Our client was facing a major pharma player in a highly lucrative and rare disease space. They wanted to ensure that they had a chance to analyze their competition’s launch plan and plans for targeting their own product, but they did not have the time to conduct a cross-functional, traditional workshop. They came to us to discuss their goals and assess the most strategic way forward. This case study explores this launch scenario in which we put a unique spin on the traditional competitive simulation approach for our client.
