Portfolio, Program, and Project Management in the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries illustrates how high-quality program and project management is crucial for drug companies to remain competitive, to deliver good returns to investors, and ultimately to bring novel personalized medicine to patients.  The book provides a combination of theoretical insights and pragmatic examples from professionals who are all working in the industry; case studies with very detailed, real-life examples of how the management of drug development is actually done; answers the pharmaceutical industry needs to streamline and make the drug development process more efficient; and the full spectrum of management processes needed from the operationalization of corporate strategy by portfolio management processes through to practical project control processes

The book, which contains chapters authored by Peter Harpum and various other industry and professional experts, is divided into three main sections to cover such topics as the impact of organizational size on P3M; planning and control; and reducing product safety risk.  This important new reference book is structured to align both novices and professionals in drug program management with success in the wake of emerging trends.  For more about the book, visit
