The development and commercialization of immune-modulating biologics present unique challenges for global launches. This is especially true in emerging markets where experience with these agents may be limited. While use of similar agents already may be present in a given country or region, often a lack of internal company expertise can hamper the rapidity and efficiency of bringing biologics to the market. An apparent hesitancy to move into emerging markets on the part of the project team can be perceived locally as mistrust. This sense of mistrust is compounded by cultural differences. This talk will outline the challenges faced by project teams in launching these unique molecules into new markets and will give practical advice on how to anticipate these potential rifts and guide teams to overcome the obstacles encountered.
They will discover the principles of project schedule risk analysis based on Monte Carlo simulation, beginning with 3-point estimates of duration and simple one-path schedules and progressing to more advanced techniques (e.g., correlation and probabilistic branching). We will also touch on the issues and techniques for collecting high-quality quantitative schedule risk analysis data

Many project management software packages put the management of schedule front and centre; for some, it's all they really actually provide support for managing. Project management courses emphasize the ideas of managing the critical path, building Gantt charts and analyzing PERT networks. Much stress is created about project schedules, milestones, dependencies and deadlines.
There’s been a lot of discussion in social media forums about whether or not the Project Manager has a role in Agile environments. Some of the talk is related to specific agile frameworks such as Scrum and its three prescribed roles (which does not include one for Project Manager), while other talk is more about the Project Manager’s responsibilities in general and where those responsibilities now lie in Agile. Add to this the news that the Project Management Institute (PMI) has introduced a new Agile certification for its membership, and we’ve got quite a conversation going—and with it, a lot of disturbing misconceptions and misinformed assumptions.
