The Genentech Spectrum case is about infusing flexibility in a medical unit of a global biotechnology company. The protagonist is Mauricio Silva de Lima, M.D., Ph.D., Vice President of U.S. Medical Affairs for the unit. The case focuses on his team’s key challenges in a highly uncertain, fluid context. These include deploying a team of specialized domain experts through program terminations (starts and stops), allocating resources efficiently during a program’s life cycle, and measuring the concrete impact of key strategic initiatives.
