Clinical Trial Optimization

Chaucer / Chaucer Life Sciences / Case Studies / Clinical Trial Optimization

Our client needed help with:

  • Changing a fragmented culture and non-standardized operating procedure that had resulted in higher than acceptable risk and poor time to market in a clinical trial program that spanned multiple global hubs on five continents.
  • Previous attempts to standardize had failed. We were asked to shape and execute the roll-out of a new process and enabling technology that, if successful, would fundamentally change our client’s clinical trial operations by improving communication and standardizing processes to lower risk and improve time to market.

Our approach:

  • We began by assessing the program scope and change readiness by region, country, business line, unit and function.
  • In our experience, this is the necessary first step to create a program that will result in sustainable change, so that the business can realize the benefits. We found that there was little sense of ownership of the standard practices in place, resulting in low adherence.
  • Based on this information, we integrated robust stakeholder communications and engagement into every aspect of the roll-out plan, which included landscape mapping, change impact assessment, benefits mapping and tracking, process definition and socialization, training needs analysis, training planning and roll out as well as testing and cutover.

The results:


Better Speed of Adoption  than previous programs
