Information Technology Program/Project Management

Pharmaceutical and healthcare organizations invest resources averaging 9 to 15 years and $350 to $500 million to develop a new drug product. A delay in bringing a product to market will typically cost an organization $1 million per day in revenues. These organizations are increasingly investing in information technology (IT) solutions to shorten this development time frame, reduce their investment, and ultimately increase their return on investment.

There are inherent complexities in the project management processes that contribute to delays in the development and implementation of IT solutions and adversely affect a project’s success. Projects succeed because they are actively managed throughout the entire systems development life cycle (SDLC). Visual Edge Consulting & Software, LLC’s program and project managers bring value to your organization by ensuring that your projects meet their projected cost, schedule, and quality objectives.

The management of a program or project of any size includes management of the following activities1:

  • Integration
  • Scope
  • Time
  • Cost
  • Quality
  • Human Resources
  • Communications
  • Risk
  • Procurement

Our consultants are accomplished in successfully executing these activities for projects that span the pharmaceutical value chain. Our program and project management staff has managed projects in the research and development, pre-clinical and clinical research, regulatory, quality assurance, and marketing phases of the drug development life cycle. The variety of projects in these areas range from drug discovery, drug development, and regulatory approval to field applications supporting the marketing efforts of the sales force. Visual Edge Consulting & Software, LLC’s portfolio includes program and project management of multimillion-dollar engagements as well as management of smaller projects.

Program/Project Managers can work alone or in conjunction with consultants from our other service areas. These services can be customized to best-fit specific client and project needs.
