Pharma - Global Regulatory Affairs - 250p - Teams across multiple regions - 1000s of submissions/year


When drawing up the planning of highly skilled resources, such as in regulatory affairs, team leaders and regulatory leads need to be able to anticipate and see capacity roadblocks long ahead. Resource availability needs to be clear at all times, as having the right persons at the right time is crucial in regulatory submissions.


In life science industries, regulatory submissions are the most critical milestones in new product developments and the product’s lifecycle. A correctly planned submission process really makes the difference because you:

  1. Increase your on-time submission delivery KPI
  2. Increase the quality of the submission deliverables
  3. Replace firefighting by a stable working environment
  4. Boost collaboration between regulatory teams
  5. Engage contingent workforce when you really need it
  6. Give end-to-end visibility, which leads to productivity
  7. And most of all, bring the benefits of new treatments sooner to patients

    Standardizing work items in regulatory affairs might seem difficult at first sight, but it is a winner’s effort

    • Teams will execute activities more efficiently
    • Delivering on time never before was this easy
