Stakeholder Engagement & Communication in BioPharma – Federman
Managing the development of a drug molecule from research through commercialized product is a long and arduous journey. Along that journey are many speed bumps and triumphs, process optimization, clinical trials, and manufacturing validations, but all along the way there are a variety of key stakeholders who engage in decision making, guiding, and informing project teams. As a biopharma project manager – one needs to communicate effectively, work in a cross functional matrix, guide project teams through many levels of governance to achieve success and reach the next milestone on the path to health authority approvals. There are also many drug molecules and project teams that form partnerships, alliances, or even contract out certain aspects to specialized organizations and services, all of which require key stakeholder management and communication channels to ensure goals are met, progress is made, and the organization stays competitive within a given therapy area.
