Rho Clinical research project management ensures success
The Rho difference is in the way we manage each project
Our process enables us to deliver high-quality results that are within scope, time, and cost constraints with unparalleled customer service. We customize our approach to ensure all individual pieces come together in line with the client's strategy. And we continually ask, "How can we do this better?" Whether we assist in the design of a study or compile a submission, we are proactive and anticipate potential hurdles to develop creative solutions. This allows us to monitor and minimize risks rather than react to them. We encourage direct interaction between our experts and our clients. This approach optimizes design, accelerates timelines, reduces costs, and improves quality.
The Rho project management process
Our Project Managers are experts at leading projects and utilizing the Rho project management process to deliver results with exceptional customer service.

During project initiation, Rho partners with our clients to understand the science and determine the endpoints of the project. We identify stakeholders and review the scope of work. The foundation is laid, and we are ready to start planning the project.
The second part of the project management process is planning. Considering the complexity of each clinical research project, the management of many resources requires an insightful plan to ensure the work meets our client's needs. The plan must also be flexible to accommodate changes likely to occur in such a complex project. During this phase, the plan is shaped through strategic and tactical discussions with all stakeholders. These discussions help to create timelines, plan resources, and determine best practices to complete the work efficiently.
Over the course of this phase, we hold team meetings to enhance team performance and review study status, we manage outside vendors and contractors, and we provide high-quality project deliverables. Our Project Managers drive the execution process by continually communicating with all stakeholders and facilitating decision making.
As the project advances, the controlling phase ensures that a project doesn't travel off its intended path to completion. While the plan is being executed, we measure, monitor, and communicate project performance in terms of scope, cost, and quality. We keep efforts focused and we raise awareness when decisions need to be made.
The project work is completed, and we ensure that the client's needs have been met with all deliverables. Documentation produced throughout the project is compiled and archived. All stakeholders reflect on the lessons that were learned throughout the course of the project, and best practices are carried forward. Plans are created to address key learnings.
