Explosive Evolution

This article builds on a preceding article (title: Under Pressure) about the selection pressures shaping the life sciences industry.

The picture I paint will, I hope, provoke thought and stimulate questions about how firms might direct and accelerate their own evolution. In the next two articles, I will answer those questions.
