Excellence in Sales Force Effectiveness / Commercial Analysis

Winning Entry and Runners-Up

Winning Entry

Combining multiple data sources to define local disease burden and market potential across multiple brands and indications in oncology
Pete Kimble, Shelley Jessop & Nathan Byne, Binley's
Tom Poole, & Dave Thompson, Roche Products Ltd

Executive Summary:

For the past five years, Binley's and Roche have worked together with publicly available data to provide insights which inform target setting and account planning across Roche’s oncology portfolio. Through a collaborative, iterative process, the complexity and acceptance of outputs have steadily increased year on year, along with the business impact of the intelligence. Through a series of mutual challenges between agency and pharma client, the data modelling incorporates additional data sources and drives maximal intelligence from exiting sources. Data outputs inform excellence in account planning and add value and context to customer interactions.

What the Judges said:

This collaboration between Roche and Binleys focused on one of the fundamentals of Business Intelligence, how to combine and validate multiple data sources in order to understand true patient potential by indication at a trust level.  This project had wide commercial impact; it influenced decisions with NHS stakeholders and was subsequently adopted as best practice across other therapy areas. This entry stood out by showing genuine innovation in approach, strong implementation and the greatest impact.
