Life Sciences

KPMG Boxwood works with some of the largest life sciences companies in the world to help them transform the way they develop, manufacture, sell, and supply their products to the global market, enabling them to achieve sustainable growth.

Experts in:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Biotechnology
  • Devices and diagnostics

The life sciences sector is experiencing a wholesale transformation unparalleled in the last 50 years. The onset of globalisation has allowed huge expansion but has also increased global competition; Greater access to technology has fuelled product development but also led to substitute products from competitors; Regulatory changes have dramatically impacted the cost of developing and supplying products, and routes to market have become increasingly undependable and difficult to navigate.

We work with ambitious life science leaders to combat these challenges and build organisations that can overcome these factors and deliver on their aspirations:

  • Maximising revenues by redefining customer value propositions and routes to market, and embedding improvements to selling, marketing and launch operations
  • Designing and delivering R&D Operating Models that maximise throughput, speed and investment value through the development pipeline
  • Implementing governance, structure and process at executive group level to optimise decision-making and execution on the ground
  • Strengthening supply-chains and manufacturing operations to meet aggressive flexibility, reliability and cost targets
  • Achieving superior levels of quality by building lean and effective QA and QC organisations
