Most pharma companies no longer outsource simply because they have to.  Most now recognize value in the use of contract organizations. But while the evolution of pharma’s outsourcing philosophy has been fairly uniform across companies, the application of outsourcing strategy remains highly diverse. The real trick for a head of R&D is identifying which model is best given the particular pharma company’s culture, infrastructure for clinical trial management, infrastructure for CRO management, depth of pipeline, and a host of other factors.
