Practice Areas: Pharmaceutical
Resources for Project Management in Pharmaceutical/Biotechnology Sector
Network:288



Hi all,
For quite some time, I had been searching ProjectManagement.com for good and new (updated) resources (webinars/blogs etc) related to Pharma/Biotech/Life Sciences Sector. I have not been very successful. Can somebody guide me on that?

If there is none, why don't we build a resource area that is so sorely missed?
Any comments?

Thanks,
Rajinder

It could be a good idea if anyone shares PM experience of his field. It is unfortunate that you have not find any updated resource in Life science sector. It may be useful if you start sharing your blogs. People can get benefit from your experience.

Hi Pankaj and Carrie, thanks for your suggestions. I am seriously thinking of adding some content here. Let us grow and strengthen this community for the better!

I have experience in that field. But the best is to see that there is a community of practice inside the PMI where you can find a lot. Perhaps there is not much written because when you work on this environments you have to follow standards and one of the standards you have to follow is regarding project management (including the project life cycle). I am not sharing the link to the community because I did not follow it from years.

Thanks, I can add materials focussing on the management of Life Science/Biotech and Pharmaceutical Projects. Of course, each functional area is unique, but at the end of the day, PM methodologies are common irrespective of the kind of projects you are managing. This makes it so exciting and challenging.
Happy to be "IN" it.

Did anyone actually make content available for Life Sciences?

Hello Rajinder,

It may help if you look within the industry of your specific discipline. For example, I work in clinical research/clinical trials in the biotech/medical device field. I connect with other clinical project managers at clinical research specific conferences and forums. I then try to connect and translate the information I find in the project management knowledge "silo" to the clinical trial knowledge "silo". I'm hoping to build up information to share with others in the PMI pharma/medical device community.

My experience is that knowledge mobilization about project management practice is limited outside of the individual organizations. It's one of the areas I've been researching because it's very contrasting to other practice communities in PMI.
