Biotechnology and life sciences products are complex and difficult to discover, develop, and commercialize. The new product development process is highly knowledge intensive—knowledge is created, captured, saved, shared, and used across the entire product lifecycle. It takes years to bring them to market.
Often, the difference between success and failure boils down to knowledge. Knowledge management (KM) is the field that delivers strategies, business processes, information architectures, organizational change management, and leading technology tools for managing knowledge. When done correctly, KM can enhance innovation, shorten new product development cycle times, enable collaboration, ensure compliance, reduce costs, and improve decision making.
