CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Developing and maintaining an efficient and effective marketing group within the Medical Device industry is increasingly challenging due to today's plethora of global regulations and competitive challenges. In this environment where every expense is scrutinized, leaders must understand optimal resource and staffing levels to help them to prioritize roles and responsibilities that will be beneficial to the overall growth of their organization.
Recent research by benchmarking firm, Best Practices, LLC found that many Medical Device companies are faced with the dueling pressures of controlling or reducing marketing costs while increasing sales and profits.
