Ron Hess - Pfizer Pharmaceutical 

Ron presented a practical view of Project Management at Pfizer and in the pharmaceutical industry in general.  He covered how Pfizer uses standards, processes, templates, and tools to manage the triple constraint in clinical trial projects.  Several case studies were used to demonstrate how Project Management is conducted at Pfizer.
