Very soon, much of what currently drives your or­ga­ni­za­tion’s success will no longer serve. What that will mean for you depends largely on leadership.

A foundational shift is underway across the world of health as continuous disruptions and groundbreaking innovations unfold simultaneously. Legacy organizations are embracing change, testing novel business models, and creating new opportunities. At the same time, new competitors from technology, consumer products and services, and other sectors are entering the enormous global health marketplace unburdened by tradition and embedded business models.

In this new world of convergence across industries and borders, health systems in both established and emerging markets are seeking new ways to meet the demands of diverse populations. As for products and services, it is becoming increasingly difficult to draw lines separating technology, science, and medicine. Change is also fueled by information- and technology-enabled consumers, disrupting traditional ties between life-science companies, providers, payers, and patients.

The era of the digital consumer has come to health and, as in every other industry, the impact is dramatic. Companies are seeking new leaders in new roles from across industries and geographies — not to innovate in a vacuum but to catalyze change across the entire organization. At Egon Zehnder we are actively advising groundbreaking organizations that are realigning for this new consumer-centric health model.
