Collaboration is the process of working together to complete a task or achieve a goal.
In the events industry, the ability to collaborate seamlessly is fundamental to ensuring a successful event. A collaborative culture can help shape the future of interactions between HCPs, patients and the Pharma industry.
Types of collaboration
Collaboration occurs in a number of ways and these include:
1. Internally – bring teams within large pharma companies together
Fostering cohesion internally and building stakeholder engagement is the first step towards success. Aligning the relevant internal departments to achieve one key vision and sharing that vision through events becomes easier and makes communications through presentations, videos and written forms much more efficient.
2. Aligning third parties and contractors with the internal vision
Events come in various shapes and sizes and those that involve working with third parties demands an extra level of planning. Ensuring all agencies understand the vision and are working towards achieving it requires effective communication.
3. Coordinating third parties
Agencies, suppliers, contractors and venues are key components to live events. Good coordination makes it easier to get tasks completed as there will be multiple teams working on them. It can also encourage innovation and generate unique ideas to make events more efficient and ensure resources aren’t being over or underused.
