Abstract

The findings of this thesis include signs that R&D practices are changing, with companies moving away from the fully integrated company model by building up external networks which will provide them access to resources and skills not available in-house. Small improvements in late stage success rates and the increasing number of NASs in preclinical development suggest that the industry's efforts to improve productivity are starting to produce results. It will take time for this to be translated into an improvement in the industry's output, the measure most frequently used to assess the industry's performance. Therefore it is important for the industry to manage the expeditions of its stakeholders and to supply them with clear and objective information on temporary indicators of efficiency and productivity.
