What Makes a Great CRA – A 360 Degree Perspective

While beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, views of CRA competency and proficiency also rest in the eyes of different stakeholders. A hiring manager will naturally have a different perspective than the site staff being monitored. And while the industry struggles with the age-old myth that to be a “good” CRA (or be hired as a CRA) you need to have at least two years of experience as a CRA, the situation is becoming even more complex as the traditional role of the CRA is ever evolving. In this dynamic panel discussion, four industry experts will share their observations on the critical knowledge, skills and abilities essential for a great CRA, how these can be developed and assessed and why it is important to consider a holistic view of CRA performance from different perspectives.
