Description: Effective communication between the sponsor and the contract organization is critical to delivering quality science on time and on budget. In this invitation-only session, AAPS hosts a candid conversation between leaders from both sides of the table to discuss the headache-generating issues that accompany outsourcing critical work to expert specialists today. Facilitators who have experienced these challenges first-hand will lead the conversation based on the issues anonymously identified to AAPS by leaders in the field. In Part I of the program, facilitators will focus on describing the issues from both parties’ perspectives, while in Part 2, participants will discuss realistic strategies for making these relationships work.
1) Timely communication of critical changes in projects – when to speak up
2) Understanding the operational processes of your partner – what I wish you knew about me
3) Mapping the project scope and details – what you don’t know will slow your partner down considerably
This two-part event begins with a 4 pm session followed by a 5 pm reception on Monday, Nov. 13. Part 2 begins with a 7:30 am breakfast followed by discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
