Learn to apply project management techniques to streamline your regulatory procedures

Course Overview

The role of regulatory affairs has evolved over time to one that requires skills and competencies usually associated with project management. Regulatory professionals are required to manage cross-functional teams, set timelines, and manage documentation. They must do all of this in a regulatory environment which adds a unique set of challenges when compared to standard projects.

This course will provide you with an understanding of how project management principles and tools can be applied, allowing you to proactively plan for evolving timelines and requirements, engage stakeholders and combat resistance to change, streamline documentation requirements, and more. You will learn using a combination of trainer-led presentations and group discussions to consolidate what you have learned. There will also be additional time for you to discuss the implications of Brexit on this subject matter.
