Clinical Project Schedule Management: Successful Start-Up Planning

Successful clinical trial projects don’t happen, they require effective planning and processes at both the site and sponsor/CRO to meet timelines. The use of a project management tool, a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) to define clinical trial start-up tasks, timelines, and assignments is an effective method to improve project success. Instruction on how to implement a WBS for clinical trial start-up planning will be mapped out along with best practices to ensure successful communication between the investigative site departments responsible for timely deliverables to the sponsor/CRO.
