The background of this research is the shift of the pharmaceutical industry from chemical drug supplier to health services provider. Therefore, the pharmaceutical industry faces the challenge to develop digitalized combination products. For such development resources are limited, and development timeframe is shortened. Due to its technological complexity, such development projects are mostly executed with hybrid project management. Based on literature one of the most important aspects of enhancing project execution is to improve cross-functional collaboration. However, for project management, it is not clear how this determinant influence cross-functional collaboration on an operational level and finally the impact on project performance.

Based on operational perspective the field research focuses its evaluation on the success factors mentioned above. In summary, the research provides a combined view of different topics regarding technology and innovation management, provides new insights for the scientific community as well as validated recommendations for the managerial perspective.
