2017 CMO LEADERSHIP AWARDS LIFESCIENCELEADER.COM THE CMO LEADERSHIP AWARDS 2017 38 2017 CMO LEADERSHIP AWARDS WINNERS RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY: PRESENTED BY: List Of Winners Page 40-47 Page 48-60 Company Profiles Life Science Leader's readership of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical executives has told us about their struggles in efficiently vetting potential CMO partners. In response to this input, Life Science Leader developed the CMO Leadership Awards. Based on Industry Standard Research's Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking annual online survey, more than 80 contract manufacturers were evaluated on 30 different performance metrics. Research participants were recruited from biopharmaceutical companies of all sizes and were screened for decision-making influence and authority when it comes to working with contract manufacturing suppliers. Respondents only evaluate companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. This level of qualification ensures that quality ratings come from actual involvement with a business and that companies identified as leaders are backed by experiential data. CMOs have an opportunity to win these awards in up to three groups of out- sourcing respondents — Big Pharma, Small Pharma, and Overall (combined Big and Small Pharma). WHAT ARE THE AWARDS? ISR survey participants were asked to provide an expectation rating for each CMO they have worked with in the past 18 months. Respondents answered over 45 questions per outsourcing category (small molecule, biologic, finished dose) and rated CMOs across 30 performance attributes. Points were then totaled for a combined score for each attribute, and a composite score for each core category was deter- mined. Winning CMOs were determined when comparing their overall score vs. the competitive set.
