Case Study Prompt
Your client is a pharmaceutical company that is ready to launch a new drug. It is a drug for severe asthma. It is essentially the same as what is in the market today, but it is stronger, faster, and can treat severe cases that are not properly treated with today’s medicine.
The drug is seen as a breakthrough. The client is planning to launch this drug in Canada. They are coming to you to determine how they should price the drug. What would you need to explore to determine a good price?
Case Study Overview
The client in this case is a pharma company that is prepping to launch a new product. You’ve been brought in to develop a pricing strategy for the product. After you understand the problem by reading through the prompt, it’s time to build a structure for the case.
The Market Study Framework marks a good starting point for your structure, but keep in mind that consulting firms don’t want to see you relying heavily on the basic case frameworks. You’ll need to combine your business experience with your structuring knowledge to build a custom structure best suited to the case.
