  1. Innovative cancer treatments: how much are we willing to pay?

    Date :

    One man in three and one woman in four will develop cancer before their 75th birthday. In Belgium, cancer is the second major cause of disease burden after cardiovascular diseases and it is unlikely this will change in the foreseeable future. Increasingly better but more expensive cancer therapies are becoming available. Needless to say, in these times of austerity, the public budget for cancer treatment is under pressure. How can we ensure all patients continue to have access to these expensive but potentially life-saving medicines at a price society can afford, while at the same time encouraging pharmaceutical companies to innovate?

  2. Physical asset management certification at Eandis

    Date :

    This teaching case can be used in a course of operations management, technology management, or supply chain management. It illustrates the challenges in physical asset management certification of ISO 55000.

  3. Leadership development remains top priority for HR departments

    Date :

    The main priority for Belgian human resources departments continues to be the development of the competencies of managers, i.e. leadership development, as the HR Barometer study by HR consultancy Hudson and Vlerick Business School reveals. Talent management – the attraction, development and motivation of talent in the organisation – is still ranked a clear second.

  4. “Together in uncharted territory”

    Date :

    The rise of new forms of decentral energy production and the growing importance of the prosumer has forced DSOs to thoroughly review their business model. "Data analytics are an essential part of this,' says Jorn De Neve (KPMG). Via interviews with data professionals and a case study of Enedis KPMG wants to map the digitization of DSOs.
