Delivering value with enterprise program management.
Hiring the right employees is a challenge for any business, but especially for the bio/pharmaceutical industry. Many organizations prioritize hiring technical roles rather than for project, program, and portfolio management. Project, program, and portfolio management roles are distinct roles that provide unique perspectives and value to a company but are often lumped together or forgotten because organizations overlook the value of these roles. This is especially true for smaller, newer life science companies that have limited funds and resources. They often see the aforementioned roles as operational or administrative and think of them as an accessory rather than a necessity. Supportive and coordinating functions—such as project, program, and portfolio management—add efficiencies and structured processes that enable technical team members to focus on their product development milestones.
