Organizing scientific research within a company requires a number of skills beyond the scientific training chemists receive at university. Handling subordinates, coordinating projects, time plans, budgets and human communication are key factors for successful management within research & design divisions in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.

This book is designed to help guide younger R&D chemists in how to quickly evolve the management skills built around three factors – people, knowledge and time. Clearly divided into four main sections, it covers the management of scientific personnel, management within a variety of R&D organizational structures, creating a climate of innovation, the management of projects, including time management, and communication aspects of the job.

This third edition of the book has been revised and updated to take into account global developments and recent changes in regulatory affairs.
