Global hubs: A path to capability-driven growth

Healthcare, Medical, and Pharma companies are at the cusp of many changes—sectoral dynamics, regulatory forces, political and economic risks—begging the question of which levers of technology, talent, digital transformation to focus on to stay ahead of the curve. Undisputedly, the need for global R&D spending to stay competitive, access new markets, and address talent shortage is crucial, which many companies have effectively done by building Global Capability Centers (GCCs).

Additionally, it’s becoming increasingly important for healthcare companies to prioritize availability, efficiency, and technology-driven solutions to meet the evolving needs of their patients and customers. By leveraging digital tools and global talent, these companies can improve operational efficiency, enhance patient outcomes, and drive better patient engagement.

Key takeaways:

  • How to identify global talent hotspots and build world class Global Capability Centers (GCCs) aligned to the company’s strategic goals and objectives
  • How to reduce ‘Time to Value’ and accelerate innovation from the newly established GCCs from day one
  • How to build a strong brand for GCCs in-presence of existing large number of companies
  • How the Indian GCCs have emerged as strategic globalization hubs driving productivity, R&D efficiencies, and innovation for enterprises, accounting for over 45% of the GCCs in the world
  • How companies can replicate the best practices and lessons learned from leaders who have successfully established global capability hubs
