Gaining cost management efficiency by interfacing EPPM and ERP in a growing project-focused biopharmaceutical company (that is operating through an outsourced model.)

For a project management professional working in a project-focused biopharmaceutical company to develop innovative medicines that improve patient’s lives is not only very rewarding and exiting, but it also brings an interesting project management challenge.

Development of innovative medicines in a fast growing company demands clear operating structure and operating systems.  Standardization is difficult but is required.  Being confronted with a growing portfolio and with continuously changing schedules brings an interesting challenge towards project cost management when operating through an outsourced model.

Joining this chapter event allows you to learn how such challenge is addressed by integration of an Enterprise Project and Portfolio Management (EPPM) system and an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and as such gaining efficiency in project cost management between the project management organization and the finance organization.
