In 2007 Genentech's Commercial organization began a major change initiative, a three year effort to replace outdated legacy IT systems and business processes with a fully integrated platform featuring robust functions, greater simplicity and significant cost efficiencies. The Commercial Blueprint succeeded in modernizing Genentech's Commercial infrastructure and building key capabilities necessary for maintaining competitive advantage. In this presentation the leaders of the Commercial Blueprint will describe what they did, how they did it, and how this initiative's success is a critical ingredient in the ongoing integration of Genentech and Roche.
