This article--authored by the leader of Chiron's (Emeryville, CA, USA) project management office--discusses the strategy he used to implement an EPM initiative, one that subsequently redefined the biotechnology giant's corporate culture. This article identifies the mistakes companies can make when implementing an EPM system and the techniques Chiron used to successfully transform the way its employees function in their roles, techniques that enabled Chiron to better allocate its resources and improve its ability to align its strategic and tactical initiatives. It explains the benefits it has achieved after adopting an EPM system and describes the challenges it must confront when developing pharmaceutical projects.
