Building Leadership Capabilities For Future Growth In Medical Technology - A European Perspective12/2/2014
The economic landscape in general and the European healthcare sector in specific have undergone significant changes since 2008. Market spaces are being redefined and, like other sectors, the medical technology industry faces many challenges as it reinvents itself in the region.
The first half of 2014 saw unprecedented activity in the global medical technology sector with mergers, consolidation and funding. These trends are likely to continue into the near future.
- So what impact does this have on medical technology organizations in Europe?
- What do business and HR leaders in the region see as their key business and leadership challenges and priorities?
- How can an effective leadership and talent development strategy help develop and execute an effective response to a changing market-place?
To answer these and other questions, Heidrick & Struggles conducted a study involving senior business and HR executives from multinational and local medical technology players in Europe. Our findings should help medical technology companies compare their own situations with the rest of the industry and provide insights regarding talent management in the future.
