Achieving program success in a clinical research setting continues to be a complex effort compounded by the current budget climate. Finding innovative ways to streamline program planning, tracking, and reporting processes has become critical to the success of clinical research. Tracking progress using major milestones and having a better understanding of the unique characteristics of clinical studies that influence resource utilization is essential to program sustainability, operational efficiency, and effective resource optimization. Using the Integrated Strategic Project Management Framework (ISPMF), the protocol portfolio along with program budget and labor utilization data for the past four fiscal years is analyzed to develop managerial/operational insight into the protocol complexities of all study types including Natural History, Phase 0, Phase I, Phase I/II, Phase II, Phase III, and Phase IV. This poster presentation aims to provide an overview of the successful launch and implementation of the ISPMF, including the best project management standards for overcoming obstacles in order to increase resource visibility and awareness at program and operational levels. In addition, this session will highlight lessons learned and the benefits experienced from implementing the ISPMF.
