It is not possible to present a complete treatment of project management for this industry in the span of 90 minutes. It is however possible to focus on those most critical project management aspects that are critical to the success of any project within biotechnology and the biomedical industry in general.

Project management is a critical component of the biotechnology industry, which involves the application of scientific principles to develop and manufacture products and services that can improve human health and well-being. The biotechnology industry involves complex processes and requires a high degree of precision and accuracy in project management. Without an understanding of basic PM tools and their unique application to this industry, it is not possible to effectively manage a project to successful completion.

Overall, effective project management is essential for the success of biomedical project development. By applying project management principles and techniques, biomedical companies can ensure that their products and services are developed and delivered in a timely, cost-effective, and high-quality manner.

This webinar will address those project management critical tasks within each project phase that must be performed flawlessly for effective project execution to occur and will provide the foundation and direction for future study of the subject.

Why Should You Attend:
Project management in the biomedical industry involves applying project management principles and techniques to the development and implementation of biomedical products and services. Biomedical projects can range from the development of medical devices and drugs to clinical trials and research studies. Effective project management is essential for ensuring that biomedical projects are completed on time, within budget, and to the required quality standards.

The project management process in the biomedical industry typically involves the following steps:

  • Planning: This involves defining the project goals, identifying the scope of the project, and creating a project plan that includes timelines, budget, and resource requirements
  • Execution: This involves the actual implementation of the project plan, which may include designing and developing products, conducting research, and running clinical trials
  • Monitoring and Control: This involves tracking project progress against the plan and adjusting as necessary to keep the project on track
  • Closing: This involves finalizing the project and delivering the products or services to the end users

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain the characteristics of Biomedical Products
  • Gain an understanding of the diversity of the technologies within the biotechnology community to identify the importance of the application of project management approaches to product development
