With stringent requirements for quality and patient safety, developing biomedical products is one of the toughest commercial endeavors a company can undertake. Companies continually strive to accelerate new product introductions by reducing development time. However, the best technologies and product concepts cannot reach patients without effective resource management planning for delivering results.
With contributions from experts in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotechnology industries, this multidisciplinary guide to project management offers solutions to the problems faced when bringing a highly technical and regulated product to the marketplace. Chapter–by–chapter, the book addresses the following topics:
Project leadership in the biomedical industry
The role of project management throughout the product lifecycle
Clinical trials and project management
Project management in drug and device development
Managing product risk
Challenges in an international environment
For any life sciences professional facing these daily realities, this indispensable reference is the key to maximizing resources, keeping costs and schedules in check, and transforming an idea into a safe, effective, and successful product.
