Recently, Applied Clinical Trials formed a Project Manager Committee, whose members will advise us on matters important for them to succeed in their positions. Our inaugural members include Dr. María Proupín-Pérez, PMP; Project Leader for PPH plus GmbH & Co. KG. Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and Brooke Derby, MBA, MS, Associate Director, BioDevelopment Excellence Global Project Manager for UCB Biosciences, Raleigh, NC. As we continue to bolster the information for project management, please check back to our website section http://www.appliedclinicaltrialsonline.com/project-managers dedicated to that role. If you would like to become a member of the PMC, please contact Applied Clinical Trials’ editor, Lisa Henderson.

Our Committees second task-the first was a conference call and discussion of the pain points in their day-to-day function-was to review an article in our recently released Clinical Trials Project Management eBook. Here are excerpts of what they had to say:

Proupín-Pérez on “Functional Outsourcing, A Project Management Perspective” by Dr. Yuri Martina

“Dr. Martina’s guidance on how to build the proper frame for an outsourced project inflicts thorough interactive planning techniques. These techniques comprise team-wide brainstorming sessions for prioritization and understanding of stakeholder requirements for better focus on the most influential ones. The author refreshes our project management biblical standards, like the PMBOK guide, by carving out the stakeholder register reliance.”

Derby on “Negotiating Effective Clinical Trial Agreements” by Jeff Parke

“This article raises key points on how to effectively negotiate while maintaining strong partnerships which is critical to effective study startup.  Depending whether or not the negotiator from the pharma/CRO side plays a dual role in the operational aspect of the study (ie, project manager) defining agreement boundaries upfront are essential.”
