2015 CMO LEADERSHIP AWARDS LIFESCIENCELEADER.COM THE CMO LEADERSHIP AWARDS 2015 55 RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY: PRESENTED BY: Industry Leaders by Market Segment Pages 56-57 Pages 58-78 Company Profiles THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE AWARDS Life Science Leader's readership of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical executives have told us about their struggles in vetting CMO partners. In response, Life Science Leader developed the CMO Leadership Awards based on industry research conducted by Nice Insight. The awards incorporate common filters used by pharma companies to vet CMOs with the added filter of peer feedback. This helps pharma and biopharma companies focus on potential CMO partners who can handle their proj- ects and are considered reputable in the industry. Nice Insight combines surveying thousands of industry executives with other key analyses to serve both partnering groups, and facilitate better overall outsourcing collaborations. Since there are significant differences in how different types of companies approach outsourcing, research respondents are assigned to one of five categories: big pharma, midsize and specialty pharma, emerging pharma, biotech, and emerging biotech. Scores are assessed by each company type in five perception categories: Innovation, Productivity, Quality, Regulatory, and Reliability. Companies achieving top 10 percentile perception scores are recognized for their achievement with a 2015 CMO Leadership Award. Unlike other industry awards that are given based on a voting or nomination process, the only votes that count towards the CMO Leadership Awards are those of the pharmaceutical and bio- pharmaceutical companies using CMO services.
