Implementing Integrated Project Management Framework: Lessons Learned from Ebola Rapid Response Efforts in West Africa 

At a large clinical research organization, project management approaches can vary greatly across many functional groups. Functional project and program management approaches under fragmented organizational structures can result in many different solutions to similar problems, each with its own pros and cons. While these functional group-specific PM approaches are often a key priority within each function to maintain excellent clinical research support services, program-wide planning, operational, and administrative support can stagnate significantly. However, integrating the most effective project management approaches from all involved at the functional and program level can have an immediate impact. The LBR/CMRP project team will share its experience and lessons learned from key customers while implementing and expanding the best integrated project management framework in support of a dozen Ebola clinical trials initiated by NIAID’s Division of Clinical Research Program during and after the outbreak Ebola virus disease in West Africa in 2014. 531
