Of course, the Head of Market Analytics asked me whether I could so easily switch back to the role of an internal service provider, instead of a line function as before. Sure and why not? After all, I once studied market research at different universities in Baden-Wuerttemberg. And besides, also as an interim manager I am always a service provider to companies. To me it is important to understand what my clients need – and that’s what I will deliver!
My current project
One of the very first tasks was to streamline the reporting system for the therapeutic area Rheumatology. My experience from both worlds – producing information as well as being on the receiving part of such and using it for my work – was very helpful. I created one central dashboard from half a dozen single reports, which now contains all relevant information. Like that, the effort for the market researchers was considerably reduced. I always like it when I can contribute to sustainability.
Something else: Although I came as a temporary replacement of one colleague who worked in one specific indication, I was asked by other colleagues as well to step in for their different product groups during their absence. Quite an easy task for me as I have more than 30 years of experience in pharma! As it was in the area of Future Products I am not going to mention the therapeutic area. But I am really enjoying it!
Should the project end as planned at the end of this year, I am already curious what interesting project Stefanie Bauer and her team at K-Recruiting will offer me next. I am looking forward to that!
