Use Case: Global Pharma Company

A global pharma company wanted to develop its innovation culture. Working with A Holistic View on Innovation, they realized company culture was only a small part of the equation. This led them to zoom out and start focusing on People (recruiting, talent development, leadership), Processes (learning, training, innovation strategy), and Culture (risk, time for innovation, internal passion).
