Project Management in the Life Sciences - Tips and Approaches

Duration: 60 Minutes
Project management is often called the accidental profession because there is no professional path from specific university education to actual practice. It is rather, a body of skills that many managers assume that most people possess. That is simply not the case. Furthermore, the types of projects that this webinar addresses, projects addressed by internal work teams, are often led by those within the organization with the least experience to do so. This webinar will help that manager get started and placed on the right track.

Why Should you Attend
Today more than ever before the job titles that we hold are not entirely reflective of the work that we do. Global teams and collaboration often place those in positions of team leadership that have the least foundation to manage all facets of complex projects. Project management requires specific knowledge of the key project facets that must be carefully managed. The interactions across divergent corporate functions, culture, language, and time zones all pose unique challenges to the new project manager.

Topic Background
What do you do? Here is a common scenario. You are three years out of college in your first engineering job. You are sitting in a meeting about the introduction of a new packaging line in your pharmaceutical plant. You are half listening to the presentation while thinking about some of the other work you need to complete on different matters. The installation will take a year to execute and will require the coordination with several functions inside and outside of the company.

Suddenly the Director of Engineering turns to you and says "Allison, this would be a great first opportunity for you to manage a very interesting project. Let's meet tomorrow and discuss your initial plans for getting started." This is an all too common occurrence in today's business environment.
