A VMO's all-encompassing purpose is to aggresively lead and guide strategic sourcing intiatives while engaging vendors to meet cost, quality, and delivery performance goals.

Stephen Guth

Key Benefits of this training include:

  • Define and clarify the different roles and responsibilities between contract research organisations (CROs) and pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device vendors
  • Measure the progress and performance of a CRO using metrics and key performance indicators
  • Effectively manage a CRO/Vendor relationship and maintain clear dialogue before, during, and after an agreement
  • Establish oversight preparation and planning for vendors, and learn how to sufficiently train and prepare a CRO for a project
  • Explore Risk-Based Assessment tools to circumvent any issues or problems that may arise during the agreed project between a vendor and CRO

Why this training is crucial for your organisation :

    Forming quality partnerships between pharmaceuticals and CROs is essential to executing clinical trials in an efficient manner. There must be a commitment from both the sponsor company and the CRO to form a successful partnership and build value while ensuring regulatory compliance is met. The parties can build mutual synergies through establishing agreements on experience levels of study team staff, development and tracking of focussed KPIs, building trust with operational staff, project and benefit tracking through creating milestones, and setting clear roles and responsibilities.

    We have created a programme that will introduce you to the right skills, tools, techniques and the methodologies essential to the successful planning and controlling of projects. The programme focuses on development of your own skills around people management and interpersonal skills required to deliver performance on projects at all levels. The course is driven by practical experience, industry feedback and based to fulfil participant’s learning needs, giving you the opportunity to immediately apply your new understandings and skills to your own projects.
