By Malathi Nayak SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Holly Riggle, a 29-year-old white-collar worker from Ohio, is just the kind of everyday customer Apple Inc would love to have for its new iPhone 6, which launches Friday. But Riggle is sticking to her Android smartphone, calling Apple less ”original” than it was under former Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs. She is one of the 16 percent of respondents in a Reuters/Ipsos poll who said Apple had become somewhat or much less cool in the last two years. .

What Do Pharma's "High Performers" Have in Common? - Pharmaceutical Executive

What Do Pharma's "High Performers" Have in Common? - Pharmaceutical Executive | The tech sector | Scoop.it

A new study of high-performing pharma companies reveals science-based innovation strategies and patient-outcome-based commercial models are now the key drivers of growth. Anne O’Riordan reports.

A select group of high performing pharma companies are significantly breaking away from the pack in terms of high performance in profitability, growth, future value, consistency and longevity, according to recent biopharmaceutical high performance business research. These high performing pharma companies are able to achieve this by focusing on innovation-driven growth strategies that are substantiated by patient- outcome-focused commercial models.

Richard Meyer's insight:

The analysis identified four key take-aways:

1. There is clear evidence of continued recovery in industry performance. The research shows a continued recovery in the first ten months of 2013 with enterprise value (1) up 14 per cent and reaching 11 per cent above the pre-recession peak of 2006. However, there is a wide range of performance between individual companies.

2. Some companies are breaking away from the pack through science-based innovation strategies: Several high performing companies have faster average growth forecasts than their peer group, largely driven by recent and upcoming product launches, based upon scientific innovations versus truly diversified strategies.

3. High performers are putting science back into life sciences: Many of the high performers are outperforming the averages for the rest of the peer group on three key forward-looking metrics — a higher replacement revenue ratio forecast, higher five-year forecast revenue growth average and a higher proportion of forecast growth from new product when compared with averages for the rest of the peer group.

4. High performers are leading the industry's pivot to the patient: High performers have been able to bring new products to market with a clear articulated view on how the drugs improve patient outcomes and are consequently able to carve out a unique place in today’s price and value-conscious health market.

The Morning Download: Microsoft’s Nadella Shakes Up Executive Ranks

The Morning Download: Microsoft’s Nadella Shakes Up Executive Ranks | The tech sector | Scoop.it
Good morning. Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Satya Nadella is starting to reshape the team helping him lead his company. The elevation to chief strategy officer of Mark Penn, a man more widely known as a political polling consultant than technology maven, could be a reflection of Mr. Nadella's focus on customers. Venture capitalist Doug Burgum, who managed Mr. Nadella for nearly seven years, says the new Microsoft leader has a different perspective on Microsoft's markets than other insiders because he worked in areas Microsoft didn't dominate. “His customer empathy is very high, because he’s worked for some [Microsoft] groups that faced strong competition and that forces you into a spot where you’ve got to really listen to the customer,” Mr. Burgum tells CIO Journal.
