What interested the researchers most, however, was that teams that did well on one assignment usually did well on all the others. Conversely, teams that failed at one thing seemed to fail at everything. (Duhigg)
As a Contract Research Organization (CRO), especially in the field of ophthalmology, you have to take on challenges and tasks with a team of compatible members who can achieve goals.
Establishing a team that accomplishes goals promptly and effectively is easier said than done. What does upper management need to do to ensure they have a great team tackling projects with great results? To get a better idea of how important it is for a project management team to use teamwork, allow a Project Manager experienced in the field of ophthalmology explain.
Brandon Beaudoin, Director of Clinical Operations at Trial Runners, on the importance of teamwork:
“Teamwork in the clinical research setting is vital to the success of any study. There are too many intricate mechanics that make up the machine that is a full-service project for just a couple of people to successfully manage alone. To make a prosperous team, each individual needs to know their role and how that role will contribute to the overall goal. In addition, a team that constantly agrees cannot be innovative. Trial Runners is built with very intelligent individuals that think outside the box and bring their ideas forward to the team, good or bad. This forward thinking is one of the factors that continues to grow us as individuals and makes Trial Runners a unique and successful ophthalmic CRO.”
In the field of ophthalmology, there are tons of subsidiary sectors of the field that need specialization. Thus, a company in the field must follow suit and delegate teams to tackle problems. The core of a successful Ophthalmology CRO is the teams that lead it. If your company has an adaptive, effective team to address concerns and goals, they will help your bottom line and ensure company-wide success!
