In the classic ﬁlm Inherit the Wind, about the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial,” two famous lawyers and long-time colleagues have been battling in court for days about whether a man should be jailed for teaching the theory of evolution. Later they are having a friendly evening chat about their difference in philosophies, when the prosecuting lawyer—the creationist says, “Why is it, my old friend, that you have moved so far away from me?”
“All motion is relative,” says the evolutionist. “Perhaps it is you who have moved away from me–by standing still.”
You can never stand still or the thinkers, the dreamers, the doers, and the innovators will move right past you. The most successful companies, no matter what the industry, are those that develop the great ideas and continually innovate. In our ﬁnal issue of PM360 for 2012, we’ve decided—for the ﬁrst time—to celebrate pharma’s most innovative companies, divisions, people, products and services. Our selections of a Top 10 in each category (beginning on page 35) were based on hundreds of submissions. In fact, the response to our “Special Innovation Issue” was so positive and the entries so excellent, that we’ve decided to create a “Special Innovation Supplement” for the December 2013 issue. So start getting those new innovations ready to roll.
Here at PM360, we’re also on the innovation bandwagon and are proud and excited to announce the launch of our enhanced PM360 Online website at www.PM360online.com. In addition to the content at our current site you’ve come to know and love, there are a host of new and cutting-edge content areas that are just a click away, including:
•Insightful and Engaging New Features •Greater Interactivity and Cooler Graphics •Easier Navigation •An Expanded Pharma Marketer Resource Center •A Comprehensive Agency Directory
•A DedicatedPM360 Awards Section—Featuring Exclusive Video from the 2012 PM360 Trailblazer Awards Gala
•Interaction With PM360 Magazine Contributors Through “Expert on Call”
All of this and more is why we call PM360 “The Essential Resource for Pharma Marketers.” And throughout the New Year, we’ll tell you about more innovations to come—because at PM360 we don’t stand still.
Thanks for reading and have a happy and healthy 2013!
