Our industry doesn't have a great reputation for adapting to change. We can point to a variety of reasons why - we're risk averse, we're highly regulated, we prioritize conformity over creativity - but no matter how stubbornly we might resist, change is necessary and inevitable. Moreover, the scale and pace of change around us is unprecedented, driven by new technologies and increased pressure to produce better results more quickly. Many organizations are struggling to respond. Explore how change management practices can be incorporated into regular business operations to help clinical research organizations prepare for, adopt, and reinforce change. Speakers will present examples from a few high-impact changes their CRO underwent in the past 3 years and provide tools to take back and apply in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify when a facilitated change management approach is needed
  • Understand the components of effective change management
  • Prepare for a large scale change management project
