Operating Model Assessment

& Change Project 

 

The client required to transform its operating model in specific geographical regions, rationalising processes, infrastructure and supporting platforms as a key component of the company’s restructuring exercise.

 

The project consisted of 2 workstreams:

1. Ensuring the operational activities across the regions maintain continuous supply and compliance despite the restructuring activities.

  • This resulted in the closure of selected legal entities and the transfer of processes and activities into either regional or central management functions.

2. Strategic assessment, selection and implementation of new partners in the impacted regions to ensure commercial success.

Business Transformation: Brexit

 

  • In March 2017 the UK triggered article 50 to leave the European Union in March 2019. In May 2017, the European Medicine Agency suggested Pharma companies take necessary actions to move their marketing authorizations, inventory ownership and product quality release to a legal entity within a country in the European Union.
  • This had an impact on our Client due to its current UK based Operating Model for Europe.
  • Our main objective for this project has been business continuity to ensure undisrupted supply to our patients.
  • In June 2017, we helped our client on assessing the impacts, creating decision strategy and timeline. We implemented a process and got answers to 3 key questions: Location of Marketing Authorization Holder Legal Entity (MAH), Location of Inventory Owner Legal Entity, Location of Product Quality Release Centre.
  • Following structuring the decision strategy with appropriate governance we have prepared our client for the worst-case scenario.

P2P Process Improvement

 

Effective from April 2017, all large UK companies and limited liability partnerships ( LLPs ) will have to publicly report twice a year on their payment practices and performance, including the average time taken to pay supplier invoices. This will have an impact on the reputation of companies if suppliers are not paid on time as such information are available publicly.

 

Primary objectives:

  • Simplify processes for internal stakeholders and vendors
  • Identify and implement Process Improvements in a cost-efficient manner
  • Align on Cross-Functional responsibilities and raise ongoing accountability
