This three-part webinar series addresses the fundamentals of Project Management as it applies to the research-based biopharmaceutical industry.

Course Overview

Project Plans: Roadmaps to Project Success: Session 1
Project plans are created to address the project’s time, cost and resources adequately to estimate the work needed and to effectively manage risk during project execution.
This webinar discusses determining “how to” plan, the identification of deliverables and the activities needed to complete deliverables. A special focus will be on best practices within the biopharmaceutical industry.

Project Teams: Vehicles Along the Road to Project Success: Session 2
Most biopharmaceutical projects involve multi-functional teams. Oftentimes, the team members are geographically dispersed. Building an effective team, developing the team’s ‘personality’ and negotiating the complex social relationships in team settings is critical to project success.
This webinar discusses how teams are developed and managed, what obstacles a team can encounter during a project, and some tips for addressing these challenges.

Project Communication: Mission Control: Session 3
Project teams can encounter challenges where are differences in expectations, surprises, lack of clarity regarding the status of the project, and last-minute requirements related to the project. Communication and stakeholder management are key in the success of multi-disciplinary teams that are typical for the biopharmaceutical industry.
This webinar discusses communication channels and how open and proactive communication can go a long way to ameliorating common problems.

An additional webinar, “What IS Project Management,” is available as a supplement to this series. For more information on this webinar and to purchase, please call the PERI Registrar at 571-490-8409.
