    Calibration system implementation is a resource-consuming task and many times the risk of failure is high in terms of benefits shortfall, changes in scope as well as cost and schedule overruns. However, a decision to implement a centralized calibration system is an opportunity to fundamentally improve business performance. Learn what are the key drivers for implementing a centralized calibration system as well as what are the practical do’s and don’ts relating to multi-site implementations.

    Implementation case story: learn why a large pharmaceutical company decided to have a centralized calibration system and what were the key considerations in multi-site implementation.

    Topics include: 

    • Implementation case story: Novartis
    • What drives companies to implement centralized calibration systems
    • Key learnings from multisite implementations (the do’s and don’ts)
    • Multi-site implementation process
    • Organizing and resourcing for multi-site implementation
    • Post go-live and lessons learned
