Level:
Advanced
Area:
Professional Techniques
Code:
PTA2
Duration:
03:30:00
Workshop profile:
Delegates should include medical writers, particularly those who work within, or for, pharmaceutical companies; project managers (whether by actual title or function); and others with responsibility for overseeing and coordinating multifunctional projects. Participants should have at least 1 year’s experience working within a matrix environment.
Objective:
• Acquire understanding of basic project management theory • Apply project management theory to multifunctional projects • Broaden context beyond medical writing • Add team-building strategies
Content:
Discussion will include project management theory and practical applications, both within the context of a matrix organisation, and as an independent providing services to clients. A medical writing group may also adopt these practices to better control their own destiny. This workshop will be a combination of lecture and in-class exercise, and will include discussions based on analysis of the scenarios presented in the homework. While the majority of the presentation will be didactic, there will be opportunity for attendees to share their experiences and ask questions throughout the presentation.
