June 5th, 2019 PMI Project Showcase

Wednesday, June 6th 5:40pm to 6:30pm 

Topic: Project Management of Lab & Bio-Manufacturing Buildings – Challenges are Non-Linear to Project Size 

Presenter: Ms. Ingrid Newman , PMP, MBA, MCR, BSc. Engineering
Presentation Summary: 

In the biotech and life science industry, scale or size has a different meaning than in traditional industries. Product sizes may be on a milliliter or nano scale. While the products may be tiny, the facilities that produce the research and that ultimately manufacture the products are much larger in scale. In the same way, the project management challenges faced on smaller size and value projects are often out of proportion to similar larger projects for larger clients. 

Ms. Newman will present examples of the project delivery process from Facility Logix’s Project Management perspective and will highlight the unique challenges of working on smaller projects for clients who may develop a new facility one in a lifetime. 

(0.75 PDU awarded - Technical Project Management)
