Facility Project Management in the Regulated Pharmaceutical Industry (T26)
This training course aims to deliver more than the usual project basics and will develop the concept of the project lifecycle from initiation through to delivery of business benefits, providing tools to manage all project resources. It is specifically targeted to the needs of facility projects within the regulated pharmaceutical industry and demonstrates the value inherent in the use of “good practice” project management in the regulated pharmaceutical environment. This course is structured around a typical facility project lifecycle of Project Initiation, Delivery Planning, Design Planning and Delivery, Procurement, Construction, Commissioning and Qualification and Project Close-Out & Review and uses case study examples throughout to illustrate key points.
