background
Background
  • Charter: Use roadmap tools for evaluating technology in the biotech industry
  • Participants:
    • Pharmaceutical/life science research industry
    • Food industry: providers and packagers
    • Development of substitute technology: plant/crop based renewable resources
  • Goal: hold a international workshop on roadmaps for the biotech industry next year
  • Status: 2 meetings May 27 & September 3
    • May 27 kickoff meeting
    • September 3 meeting:
      • Definition of the problem
      • Preliminary discussions on workshop planning
phases of biotech roadmap
Phases of Biotech Roadmap
  • Phases of biotech roadmap
    • Phase 1: Learning: gain experience by addressing a manageable but important problem
    • Phase 2: Applying: expand scope to more difficult problems to assess the tool
    • Phase 3: Exploiting: internalize use
  • Critical issue in Phase 1 is to define manageable problem
    • “The person who controls the definition of the problem controls the solution”
    • “A problem well put is half solved”

Key Issue to Consider in Defining a Problem(source: Mitroff: Smart Thinking for Crazy Times)
  • Pick the right stakeholders
    • Output must meet needs of critical stakeholders
  • Expand your options
    • Single definition of a problem is not acceptable
  • Phrase the problem correctly
    • Phrase using human or technical variables
  • Expand the problems boundaries
    • Never draw too narrowly, challenge comfort zone
  • Be prepared to manage paradox
    • Never solve problem solely by fragmentation
    • Look at system, interactions of system important
systems thinking approach toc
Systems Thinking Approach: TOC
  • Key assumptions of Theory of Constraints (TOC)
    • Any system has at least one constraint, otherwise it would be generating infinite amount of output
    • “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link”
      • Strengthen the chain be addressing weakest link
    • Constraints dictate the performance of an organization to achieve its goal
    • Once the weak link is strengthened, a new link will show itself
differing perspectives m liebman wyeth ayerst
Differing PerspectivesM. Liebman, Wyeth-Ayerst
  • Technology producer vs consumer need
  • Technology vs financial return
  • Technology vs culture
  • Technology vs regulatory issues
  • local/state/region/national/international
technology vs culture m liebman wyeth ayerst
Technology vs CultureM. Liebman, Wyeth-Ayerst
  • Technology- Can You Do It
  • Culture- Should You Do It
  • Issues (Process/System Considerations)
    • convention
    • (re)education
    • ethics
    • regulatory
    • market need
    • economics
    • production, distribution…
    • funding sources
    • innovation vs replacement
    • time vs money
next steps
Next Steps
  • Divide group into 3 sub-groups
    • Pharmaceuticals/life science research
    • Food industry
    • Plant/crop renewable resources
  • Each group to complete the following assignments
    • Construct a value chain/network for their industry
    • Identify critical issues to address in the roadmap
  • Next meeting to be held in mid-October
    • Goal will be to review sub-group reports
    • Use this information to identify topics for the roadmapping effort
