Coordination/Project Management

Coordination/Project Management

Project management refers to the knowledge, skills, and techniques used to execute and complete projects. Whether it is a one-time project or an ongoing project, it is  typically led and overseen by a project manager.

A project may be defined as the set of tasks or activities undertaken to achieve specific, predetermined objectives. Projects are intended to be temporary endeavors, not recurring activities. They should have a timeline with a defined start and end date, as well as a scope and resources allocated to the project. Projects may vary in complexity, with some that may take years to complete, while others may be completed within a few days or months following initiation.

The primary responsibilities of a Project Manager are to ensure that all projects are completed on time, meet quality standards, and stay within budget. Project managers divide their time among people, projects, clients, and contemporary tools. They oversee daily activities, identify technical requirements, set timelines and budgets, coordinate team members, and generate reports.
Project Managers also handle risk and budget management throughout the project's lifecycle. While the project manager drives the project forward, they do not work in isolation. They collaborate with various project roles and are accountable for updating the client on the project progress.

The Project Manager serves as the primary contact for vendors and independent contractors, formulating contracts and managing services. Project managers consistently strive to refine and enhance processes and overall strategies, especially beneficial in rapidly evolving projects. They are responsible for creating and maintaining comprehensive project documentation.

Project Managers are professionals tasked with ensuring their teams complete all projects on time and within budget. They prevent “scope creep” – an uncontrolled change or continuous growth in a project's scope after project initiation, while also managing individual tasks for their respective teams, paying close attention to detail to avert unexpected issues.

All types of businesses rely on projects to achieve many of their short-term and long-term goals, and are the means to accomplish tasks. In today’s fast-paced professional landscape, project management is an essential business tool for organisations of all sizes and industries.
Executing projects in Pharma, Cosmetics, Medical Devices or Food Supplements can be sometimes complex, challenging and require a thorough understanding and expertise. It can either be a specific regulatory project such as drafting a protocol, a CTA, an IMPD, a clinical report, performing regulatory intelligence, writing a marketing authorisation application, supporting various product launch activities, etc, to managing the overall development program and providing strategic expertise or support in managing internal and external stakeholders.
