Project Management is the lifeline of any business organization. In order to secure the overall bottom line, managing projects through cost-effective, timely and productive trend is absolutely critical. The Project Management Institute (PMI) defines a project as "a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result." Projects are "temporary" and hence distinct from operations. The primary objective of projects is strengthening the core business; however successful projects lead to successful operations.
With the stringent regulatory amendments which are gearing up and reinforcing the regulatory framework for launch of newer drugs, the time to launch the product has increased thereby affecting the economics of drug development. Project management plays a vital role in accelerating the launch program. The project management not only secures the appropriate risk management policies but also assures drug development meets all regulatory guidelines so that time to market can be minimized. The best practice for a successful project manager requires agility and flexibility to generate successful outcomes. The concepts of project management and best practices in project management continue to evolve in the pharma industry. Being a Project Manager in the pharmaceutical industry presents multiple varied roles such as process development, tech transfer, installation of new manufacturing lines, building of facilities or other areas of expertise. It is extremely vital to be abreast of current industry trends and updates in project management new tools and techniques.
