Accelerating Operational Readiness in Biotech: Bridging the Chasm from Project Mode to Operations

Life Sciences, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain, Commercialization & HEOR,
  • Tuesday, January 25, 2022

Turning a capital project or technology transfer into successful operations requires focused execution of a structured, multi-workstream plan. The ability to define clear objectives and establish ownership in each department and workstream will propel a site to success, or else the operational goals will fall short.

The biotech industry has decades of deep experience to know what the post-startup issues will be, yet few sites leverage this industry experience to reach their targeted operational objectives in less than two years, while even fewer can sustain consistent levels of timely targeted product release.

In this session, the featured speaker will introduce and discuss how using a structured workstream approach to operational readiness will reduce costly delays, bottlenecks, and deviations to accelerate production and release to market.

Register for this webinar to learn how using a structured, staged approach will help meet operational readiness goals.
