Description

This course aims to deliver more than the usual project basics and will develop the concept of the project lifecycle from initiation through to delivery of business benefits, providing tools to manage all project resources. It is specifically targeted to the needs of facility projects within the regulated pharmaceutical industry and demonstrates the value inherent in the use of “good practice” project management in the regulated pharmaceutical environment. Trends in regulatory compliance, environmental, health and safety legislation, project delivery methodologies and product speed to market expectations all impact how pharmaceutical facility projects are managed. Each course module introduces key generic project management concepts and tools as well as methodologies which specifically support successful project delivery within the regulated pharmaceutical industry. This course is structured around a typical facility project lifecycle of Project Initiation, Delivery Planning, Design Planning and Delivery, Procurement, Construction, Commissioning and Qualification and Project Close-Out & Review and uses case study examples throughout to illustrate key points.
