What will you be doing?
As a Portfolio Director, you’re no stranger to lengthy to-do lists, but we’ve broken the role down to three main functions.
You use your expertise to improve quality and client satisfaction. You do this by understanding the entire drug development process and guiding teams through that process – interfacing between multiple trials of the same asset in different stages of development, while managing to the client’s development plans and timelines. You do what it takes to gain business, retain business, and mitigate risks.
You are an operational leader, guiding teams regarding best practices in the evolution of drug development – from pre-clinical to post-marketing. You interface with other operational leads and provide strategic guidance to project teams by way of timeline management, risk mitigation, and liaising with requisite functional areas. You set your colleagues up for success.
You identify opportunities to improve the Center for Global Drug Development. You collaborate with your peers and leaders to define, develop, and implement improvements both locally and globally.
