The vetting process for selecting outsourcing partners is time consuming and complex. To support the process, Life Science Leader developed the CMO Leadership Awards in 2011. We think sponsor company opinions are important and credible — that’s why the awards are based on customer feedback. Winning CMOs are chosen through third-party, impartial market research based on feedback from sponsor companies that utilize outsourcing services.
Primary market research by Industry Standard Research (ISR) is the basis of the awards. Sponsors provide ratings of CMOs based on recent outsourced projects. This experiential feedback is analyzed by sponsor company size to reveal leading CMOs in different performance categories. For details on the research methodology, visit isrreports.com.
Based on the research, award recipients are announced in Life Science Leader’s awards supplement – a resource for sponsors and CMOs alike. The annual issue includes original editorial, outsourcing industry trends, and award-winning CMO profiles. Life Science Leader is a monthly publication available in digital and print through subscription.
The most recent awards supplement was published in March 2016. The next issue will be released in March 2017.
