Brainstorming Assignment

One of the uses for the FOCM Network is to help solve business issues, questions or needs through brainstorming and crowdsourcing.

A recent request came to see if an alternative name could be generated to the term “Business Development”.  In the clinical research world, “Business Development” is essentially: “Sales”.   In the pharmaceutical commercialization sector, “Business Development” involves: licensing, partnerships, alliances, acquisitions.

I am looking for your help in coming up with new terminology, something which has to do with these key words:

Relationships

Strategic

Alliances

Partnerships

Collaboration

Please submit responses in the comment sections.

    It is a true partnership so I think the word partner or partnership would be perfect to incorporate somehow, like Clinical Partner. If I had to choose from the list, I’d say Sales Ninja takes it. However, if you look up “partnership” in the online thesaurus, you get some interesting words which include cahoots, clique, gang, and even cartel and hookup. So now I’m thinking a Clinical Cartel Hookup would work. How could anyone argue with that?

    I still think that “Priceline Negotiator” is the be all/end all, though 🙂

    Customer Engagement and Delivery
    Customer Delight Interface
    Client Collaboration and Partnership Director
    Business Partnership Expert
    or
    Customer Joy creator and Enhancer

    Maybe I need to decrease my medication. 🙂
