Big Pharma never worried about cutting costs and improving efficiencies because the industry didn’t have to. The good old days are gone and never to come back. The industry is striving and stretching finding new processes where they can be more efficient. The previous five events, IQPC Lean Six Sigma for Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Medical Device Excellence has witnessed the pains and gains throughout the LSS journey the industry has gone through.
