Recently, not only industry but also academia are utilizing project management skills and techniques, to produce deliverables under cost and time constrains. In addition, recent new therapy development, such as oncology, requires simultaneous development of multiple indications and/or concurrent CDx development, and simple project management tools may not fully solve organizational problems. Thus “program management”, where multiple projects are managed effectively and efficiently, plays critical roles. In this session, basic concept and examples program management implementation will be introduced and participants are encouraged to participate in discussion, so that we can deeply understand and discuss effective and efficient management for recent complex new therapy development.
