This project management training for FDA regulated companies will show how you can meet key FDA and EU MDD regulatory requirements for the project you manage. It will focus on proven tools and techniques for successful development and implementation of project management planning.
Why Should You Attend
The FDA expects companies to manage projects formally, with a written plan -- to include regulatory requirements, design and/or change control, with consideration of all applicable standards, and to demonstrate "progress against plan". The EU MDD and their notified bodies are no different.
How can this be done from a project's inception? How can lean principles be incorporated from project inception? What is "failing fast" in the "build, measure, learn, re-evaluate / decide loop"? Can Agile principles mesh with FDA's documentation requirements? How can a Project Leader or Project Manager ensure critical elements are not omitted until late in the project when disaster looms? How to gain management support for the Milestones, Tasks, Timelines?
This webinar will provide valuable guidance to regulated companies in development and implementation of new Lean Project Management Planning concepts including some Agile principles, for new product development, regulatory compliance audit responses, proof of "progress against plan", and other activities requiring a planned documented rationale. Three of the most common tools will be discussed. "Hit the ground running" with one very simple approach using common Excel- or Word-type PC applications programs. Learn how regular use of a few simple but powerful tools will virtually eliminate "firefighting" in a new project.
Attend this training to understand how one can reduce scheduling uncertainty, aid project team communication, prevent incomplete projects when time is running out, decrease product liability, assist in company-wide cost reduction efforts, with less chance of recalls, and an improved bottom line.
