Traditional project management of clinical trials, when performed by CROs, provides focus on oversight of timelines, budgets, resourcing, and performance goals. Biotech and pharma clients require more from project managers – a true partnership in clinical development.
Project managers are increasingly being expected to:
- Support the client’s business strategy and sustainability
- Interpret trends identified within a project that may impact the current clinical trial design and future clinical development, regulatory, and commercial strategies
- Identify and mitigate risks prior to realizing a larger project impact
CROs are struggling to move from traditional to strategic project management and clients are being impacted.
This presentation shares best practices on strategic project management for clinical trials, from both the CRO delivery and sponsor expectation perspective. A case study is also included to provide an example of the shift from traditional to strategic project management and resulting benefits, including financial impact, team dynamics, efficiency of correspondence and communication, and superior delivery of project management services.
