SCDM 2017 Annual Conference | September 24-27, 2017

Don't miss panelist Melissa Lamb, Director of Data Management during Session 12: US and Europe Data Management after the Offshoring Efforts on Tuesday, September 26 from 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM.

It has been over 10 years since CROs and pharma companies began offshoring data management activities. What has changed for data managers in the US and Europe? What does this mean for the future of data managers in the US, Europe and these low cost countries? Has this really saved costs? Are there good processes in place to ensure and measure quality? Do staff in all of these roles have access to the training they need? Do staff in low cost countries have the opportunity to progress in their careers? Do people see further changes coming in their companies? This panel discussion will discuss the answer to these and other questions and open the floor up to the audience to share their thoughts and experiences.
