Project management

According to PMBoK (Project Management Body of Knowledge), a project is a “temporary endeavor to create a unique product, service or result”.

A clinical trial of a medicine or medical device should be considered as a complex and large-scale project that requires a multifunctional and well-coordinated team.

A clinical trial, like any other project, consists of a large number of various components and is carried out in several stages:

  • Conclusion of a contract
  • Development of study documents
  • Selection of clinical sites and service providers
  • Submission of a clinical trial application to regulatory authorities and getting the green light for its execution
  • Organization of logistics of the investigational drug and laboratory samples
  • Holding the investigators kick-off meeting
  • Study sites initiation
  • Patient recruitment
  • Clinical monitoring
  • Study sites management
  • Data management
  • Statistical analysis of the results
  • Interaction with regulators and preparation of the final clinical study report

Profile expertise and risk mitigation

A well-controlled clinical trial begins with a clear identification of possible risks and proper project planning to reduce the likelihood of these identified risks and minimize their consequences. It is crucial for the success of the entire project that the project team has a profile expertise in the selected therapeutic area of the investigational medicinal product or medical device.
