Using the profession of “Medical Writing”, this session explores the productivity dissonance created when skills are not properly described, understood or communicated. Although Medical Writing is the use case presented here, this session addresses issues that are common throughout the organization. Also discussed is the idea of a tailored “Competency Model” to assist the organization with clarifying roles, skills and where they should ideally be applied. The net result is not only greater productivity for the organization, but greater job satisfaction overall.
Learning Objective : Describe common and uncommon barriers to collaboration; Discuss a case study of a fast paced clinical trial site; Discuss some effective tools considering the current scenario and continued improvement plan.
