Every day, senior leaders and executives around the globe make important decisions around transforming their organizational culture, leadership, processes and technology. They need to make trade-offs to balance autonomy and control within their organizations. They need to evaluate short term versus long term impacts. They must be able to find a sweet spot between desirability and feasibility to win their customers.

Brightline and IESE Business School will explore similar key trade-offs that leaders need to respond to daily. The right decisions by senior leadership can bridge the expensive and unproductive gap between strategy design and delivery to positively transform organizations.

The results of this research collaboration will be published in a series of articles offering guidance for senior executives. By applying the insights from the research, leaders may be able to successfully manage their most important trade-offs.

Prof. Joaquim Vilà of IESE Business School will lead this research effort with the Brightline team. He asserts that, “many executives agree that implementation is ‘the problem’. Translating strategy into results goes well beyond communicating a sound strategy to our people. It implies addressing different demands to gain the acceptance and commitment of all involved and, specifically, leading an implementation plan in the midst of a changing environment. Execution implies balancing contradictory goals. All these factors play a role, and it is the weakest aspect that shapes the prospects of reducing the gap between strategy design and implementation results.”

Dr. Edivandro Conforto, Head of Strategy Research at Brightline, says, “Our research and engagement with senior leaders reveals the challenges to transform ideas into reality. With our new partnership with IESE we will dive deeper into how leaders can successfully navigate complex decision-making. This partnership will advance our thought leadership research and will shed light on some of the most critical trade-offs and the right practices to deal with them.”

Brightline’s Executive Director Ricardo Vargas states that, “Today’s leaders struggle to balance organizations’ interests and individuals’ aspirations. In order to successfully transform, leaders need to be able to walk a tight rope between acting quickly and thoughtfully assessing the context. We are very excited to partner with IESE Business School to uncover new insights to help senior executives successfully lead changes needed in their organizations.”

Takeda Announces Compelling Data from the Phase 2 Trial of Pevonedistat Plus Azacitidine in Patients with Higher-Risk MDS29.5.2020 14:00:00 CESTPress release

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced the results of the Phase 2 Pevonedistat-2001 trial will be presented during oral sessions at the virtual 56thAmerican Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting and the virtual 25thEuropean Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting. The study evaluated pevonedistat plus azacitidine versus azacitidine alone in patients with rare leukemias, including higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (HR-MDS). These results show that the combination of pevonedistat and azacitidine is a highly active, promising therapeutic approach and suggest benefit in the HR-MDS subgroup across multiple clinically meaningful endpoints, including overall survival (OS), event-free survival (EFS), complete remission (CR) and transfusion independence, with a safety profile similar to azacitidine alone. The Pevonedistat-2001 trial was designed as a proof-of-concept study in patients with HR-MDS, higher-risk chronic myelomonocytic leukemi
