The Client

A multinational pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical company with more than 60,000 employees worldwide.

The Challenge

The Oncology business unit within this client’s organization needed content to support their business acumen curriculum. With the ever-increasing complexity of the Oncology marketplace, they needed content that would educate their field teams on the rapidly changing environment in which their customers operate. The client’s training department recognized the need to think outside the traditional clinical training framework and including upskilling related to business acumen.

The program was designed for the field-facing teams but made available to all Headquarters based on personnel who were new to Oncology (around 500 learners).

The CMR Approach

Working with this company, CMR developed a mapping plan to align with the customer’s curriculum and program objectives. We looked at our content through an Oncology lens and identified relevant business acumen resources that specifically impacted those in the Oncology space.

The program represents a blended learning approach to ensure learning transfer. The program contains podcasts, job aids, and microlearning content design.

Currently, this program contains over 20 oncology-related business acumen resources. Recently the client also launched a general catalog of more than 100 resources to meet other needs outside oncology-related business acumen.
