Clinical Research projects involve multidisciplinary teams with different backgrounds and vocabulary, but they need to work together for a successful outcome. This is often where clinical research teams fail or complain. ECCRT put in place a SMART solution named ‘Team To Go’ to overcome this issue.
This programme focuses on your team and the communication between each stakeholder in order to increase your efficiency during a study.
TTG is not only about training a team on specific skills, but it is also about bonding the team for success. Not designed to be a one-time effort, it will provide guidance and coaching to your team throughout the project in order to have a successful outcome.
The 3 main components of TTG are:
What are the objectives of the TTG?
- Focus the team on the project deliverables and goals
- Increase team efficiency to avoid study delay and budget overrun
- Increase team members motivation and create a real team
Here is what past participants have to say about the TTG:
The 2 team days with ECCRT trainer significantly increased the team spirit and the cooperation within the team. This was not self-evident since the team is not physically located at the same place. Also, we were operating as a team in the challenging business context of clinical development and set up a dossier for a Biopharmaceutical drug, the ECCRT trainer certainly contributed to the success of our team and their daily work.
Concretely, one of the outputs of our team sessions together is that team members, all solid managers, or leaders, think a bit more before they display criticism or express a complaint. They think in advance: ‘how would I respond or feel when I would receive this specific feedback?’. This way of thinking got very well integrated in our daily interaction. – The feedback from a CEO after 1 year.
“ECCRT provided negotiation training to my project managers team. It was a team with very little experience in soft skills training. The trainer really adapts the course to people needs and their different backgrounds. This training was a real surprise for them in a positive way.
They discovered that soft skills can be learned and improved. The team, but also with external stakeholders’ communication improved afterwards. They started to communicate differently, dare to say their thought, adapted their speech to their customers (internal and external) etc. This training opened their eyes to another way of negotiating. They are now willing to have other soft skills training thanks to ECCRT.” – The feedback from a Team Manager 1 year after the project.
