PMO Conference for the Pharma Sector

Time: 9.30 Location: Brussels Type: Conference Language:

QRP International has a long experience in organising training and consultancy for project, programme and portfolio managers. QRP has assisted many professionals and their organisations in setting up and running a PMO. In this way, QRP has also supported these professionals and organisations to stream their P3M (project, programme and portfolio) processes.


In recent years many professionals from the pharmaceutical sector have attended our courses. In order to also play a role after the course, we aim to organise a user group. The aim of this user group is to improve the sector as a whole and to discuss the roadblocks that prevent the further improvement of projects, programmes and portfolios within the pharmaceutical sector.

We have identified 3 main areas of Project Management within the pharma industry:

  • Project Management in Clinical Study Management
  • Corporate PMO Structure, linked to Programme and Portfolio Management
  • Project Management within the factory, often connected to Lean practices


  • Providing two case studies from the sector (see speakers section)
  • Creating the possibility to discuss roadblocks and learn from each other
  • Bringing key players from the sector together to discuss their actual situation, progress and vision for the future
  • Sharing high-quality industry information that comes from within the sector
  • Giving attendees the opportunity to ask for advice from QRP accredited trainers and consultants during this event
