Transforming learning in the pharma and life sciences industry

Oct 24, 2019 | Featured, General, In-Focus Reports, Research

As an industry, pharma and life sciences is leading the way with evidence-based practice and therefore it is surprising that organisations are not applying this valuable practice to support people to transform as they grapple with the skills acquisition challenge.

About this report

Today’s pharmaceutical and life sciences landscape is complex and constantly evolving in response to several macro trends. These include, among other things, economic changes (e.g. shifts from volume to value), social realities (e.g. rapidly aging and expanding global population and an empowered patient base) and increasing regulatory scrutiny.

However, the largest of these is the business model shift needed to secure ongoing competitive advantage in the so-called pharmaceutical 4.0 revolution. Indeed, digitalisation and data are transforming everything from customer engagement, to competitor profiles, to supply chain management. Organisations that harness the power of data-fueled insights will lead in this new industry paradigm. Despite these seismic shifts, only 1 in 4 pharma and life sciences organisations report being agile enough to successfully transform and adapt to new working environments.

Transforming learning in the pharma and life sciences industry: An evidence-based roadmap for change, supported by apio, highlights the need for pharma and life sciences organisations to transform and be adaptable in times of uncertainty and increased market competitiveness.

Covered in this report

This future-focused report looks at three key priorities for pharma and life sciences organisations to change:

  • Approach: Shifting from a perception-based to an evidence-based approach
  • Capability: Focusing on behavioural change, autonomous learning, social learning and reflection
  • Culture: Encouraging, guiding and facilitating continuous development of individuals

The Great Training Robbery

The Great Training Robbery

According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

Going beyond ticking the box

With 56% of organisations reporting that a lack of learner engagement is hindering the success of compliance within the business, it is clear that something needs to be done to highlight the value of these programmes to learners in order for them to engage with the content and retain the information.

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

In a world in which the nature of work, the workplace and workforce are changing at a relentless pace, organisations must respond to change. In the context of such rapid change Learning and Development (L&D) functions play a vital role. The transformation of organisations demands the transformation of L&D practitioners, however many L&D teams are struggling to change.
