Drug and device development is a complex process which needs effective project management. With ever increasing pressures to complete the development of drugs and medical devices as quickly as possible, the effective use of project management can provide essential tools and techniques to achieve this. Indeed effective project management can be a key factor to successful completion of bringing a drug or medical device to market.

This interactive course has been designed to provide you with a thorough understanding of project management skills, including both technical and interpersonal skills.

You will be provided with an integrated project tool kit which can easily be used with your existing or future projects. This tool kit has been used to significantly improve the success of bio/pharmaceutical projects in many bio/ pharmaceutical organisations. The course will show you how to use these project management skills to gain the most benefit from them in your projects.

Interactive sessions applying techniques to a simulated case study and your own projects The course will include a number of sessions where participants will be able to apply some of the techniques to a simulated pharmaceutical case study and also their own projects. Therefore it is recommended that participants bring a project which they are currently involved in or will be working on - to maximise their learning from the course. There is no need to disclose any confidential information about your project.
