astrazeneca – make your science count

Utter the term “clinical trial documentation” and even the most zealous researcher won’t be able to stifle a yawn. Admittedly, it’s not the most fun part of the job, but crucial to getting a new drug approved. So, how do you turn a virtual sleeping pill into an organizational energy boost?

the solution

the art of making administration cool and fun

When a company like AstraZeneca introduces a new, digital administrative system for its research documentation, there is no room for mistakes. It brings forward a new way of working that needs to engage and educate researchers, leaders and administrators all over the world. This system was named Trial Master File and Nexer Maverick was put in charge of communicating the change and teaching staff how to work with it.

After long hours of workshops and interviews with key people and end users of the new system, Nexer Maverick presented a communication strategy and concept. It was the moment of truth. Would communication be able to match serious research and meticulous bureaucracy? Without being boring. The answer was found in a smile and a laid-back attitude with cut-to-the chase content.

”I wanted to tell you that this training was perfect, it concentrated on what really matters and was as concise as it should be. Very good at providing an overview and basic principles. On top of it, they were able to make it fun.” – AstraZeneca user

the outcome

change powered by strategies, insights and smiles

Under the message “Make Your Science Count” delivered in a musical concept with retro vibes, the clinical information came to life. A limited edition of branded coffee mugs, sunglasses, chewing gums, tote bags and key straps along with events, films and a series of e-learnings, gave the campaign immediate impact. Employees from England to Vietnam embraced the concept head on and even submitted films featuring their own “cool corners” created in spirit of the concept.

“Loved the videos and the overall campaign messaging. Well done!” – Subramanian, Pushkala, Vice President, Simplification Center of Excellence, IS
