A lot of statisticians, especially in pharmaceutical companies but also CROs, fear outsourcing because it might make their job redundant. Think about:

What can you do about it?
How can you add value to your organisation?
What would it cost to outsource your organisation?
If you would need to compete with other organisations, would you survive?
If you think of yourself as your own organisation – can you make yourself outsourcing proof?

In this episode, Benjamin and I will be talking about these tips and tricks:

  • What are the things, that are done better, faster and cheaper by others?
  • Does your supervisor know about your value? Do you help him or her to understand this?
  • Would your business partners care, if you would be replaced by a statistician at a different company or maybe even by a statistician within your organisation? Would they even notice? Might they even be better off?

Listen to this interview and share it with others, who might learn from it!

Join The Effective Statistician LinkedIn group

I want to help the community of statisticians, data scientists, programmers and other quantitative scientists to be more influential, innovative, and effective. I believe that as a community we can help our research, our regulatory and payer systems, and ultimately physicians and patients take better decisions based on better evidence.

I work to achieve a future in which everyone can access the right evidence in the right format at the right time to make sound decisions.

When my kids are sick, I want to have good evidence to discuss with the physician about the different therapy choices.

When my mother is sick, I want her to understand the evidence and being able to understand it.

When I get sick, I want to find evidence that I can trust and that helps me to have meaningful discussions with my healthcare professionals.

I want to live in a world, where the media reports correctly about medical evidence and in which society distinguishes between fake evidence and real evidence.

Let’s work together to achieve this.
