5 Cold Hard Lessons of Medical Science Liaison Office Politics
You’d think medical science liaisons don’t deal with office politics because MSLs are field-based. But it is because MSLs are far removed from internal “office-based” stakeholders, that office politics can make or break MSL teams. Behold: 5 Cold Hard Truths of MSL Office Politics
MSL Institute's Medical Science Liaison Metrics Consensus
Medical Science Liaison Institute’s Medical Science Liaison Metrics Consensus Initiative provides pharmaceutical executives and medical directors with information to demonstrate and communicate value of field medical teams to the organization’s internal stakeholders.
Grow Your Value as a Medical Science Liaison
Medical science liaisons may distinguish themselves as scientific experts (subject matter expertise), or gain recognition as a well-rounded scientific professional with strong business acumen. Yet no matter whether an MSL shows “scientific smarts” or “business smarts”, their sustainability at an organization will be bounded by the strength of their relationship assets.
Enterprise-Equity Value Model of MSL Teams
Rather than addressing the “which metrics should be correct” debate, I want to suggest the concept of “equity and enterprise values” for MSLs who wants new ideas on how they can make themselves more valuable as a medical science liaison professional in any organization. This concept came from a longer series of seminars I gave to a global aerospace organization comprised of engineers working on programs spanning many years.
