In the field of pharmaceutical research and development (R&D), project management has not yet been embraced with as much enthusiasm as in other fields. Part of the reason is due to the unique nature of pharmaceutical R&D, and part is because most project managers come up through the company ranks and lack formal project management training. This article discusses a number of issues facing project managers in pharmaceutical R&D, such as the level of detail appropriate to put into project plans, ways to quantitatively measure project management benefits, and the differences between the traditional project management roles and skill sets and those necessary in the pharmaceutical R&D field.
