Great science makes great drugs. Great project management makes great companies.
Project management is one of the most important functions within any biotech or pharmaceutical company. Great project management delivers effective progress towards goals, coordinates complicated tasks, and manages our most precious resource – time. Unfortunately, project management is often overlooked because it’s not as exciting and dynamic as science and finance.
Preclinical GPS takes project management very seriously because great project management can move any program to its goals. As a corollary, poor project management can keep the greatest projects from being successful.
At Preclinical GPS, we build and implement a 2853-step project plan from drug concept to IND. These steps represent each major action required for preclinical development. We use this plan as our map for preclinical development and for gap analysis. With this map, Preclinical GPS manages 2 to 4 INDs each year. We have additional project plans that support individual studies and programs beyond IND.

Perfection is acceptable
To ensure perfect execution of projects, Preclinical GPS has developed extensive checklists and processes for pre-study activities, protocol review, in-life assessments, data review, report review, CRO audits, and regulatory document preparation.
We understand that checklists are not especially interesting. However, we use checklists for the same reasons that airplane pilots use checklists – because perfection is acceptable.
