Contemporary communication technologies have allowed professional collaboration on a hitherto unprecedented scale. The ability to communicate freely and instantly has elevated previously cumbersome collaboration groups in various industries — such as mastermind groups.
While this concept is nearly a century old, it has gained most of its popularity in the previous couple of decades. In short, mastermind groups represent peer mentoring collectives — with members of various levels of education and professional experience, seeking to solve issues using advice and input from other group members.
This concept has proven its worth across a number of industries, with the pharmaceutical and medical sectors being no exception. Medical affairs leaders and medical science liaisons can benefit immensely from working with like-minded colleagues in their professions.
