The Journey to Make Training Great: Taking the Lead toward the Excellent Organization
Friday, September 7, 2018 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EDT
Every company and function has a vision and mission to be the best at what they do. Whether commercial, research, clinical, enterprise or any function, training and people development play a crucial role on the road to excellence. When it comes to the management and execution of clinical trials, training arguably plays an even more crucial role. The functions supporting clinical trial operations require multifold types of expertise, involve very complex processes, are highly regulated and demand process excellence.
Join us for this LTEN webinar, as John Constantine, SVP at Orchestrall and former LTEN Board president, interviews Dr. Hassan Ansari, Executive Director, Clinical Quality & Infrastructure at Pharmacyclics. They will discuss how Dr. Ansari got the Clinical Operations organization to realize the need for better and more professional training, highlight the process that was used to address the need and show the current and expected results of this journey. John and Dr. Ansari will talk practically about how this can and should be done in all organizations.
At this webinar, John and Dr. Ansari will:
- Review and discuss how compliance with process and regulation are just not enough for the excellent organization.
- Outline some of the common manifestations of L&D that keep the organization stuck on “fully compliant” while not realizing the great benefits of people development.
- Challenge opinions on the technical and, more controversially, non-technical causes of L&D stagnation (hint: it’s not always about more money or people).
- Discuss thoughts and ideas on how business leaders, learning professionals and supplier partners can team up to help make the excellent organization a reality.
