Stage Gate Decision-Making Workshop (Part 1 of 2)

Courtland R. LaVallee
Executive Director, Project Management
Dynavax Technologies, United States

This interactive two-part workshop will help attendees who may be primarily involved in tactical activities understand how a company makes strategic decisions for moving a product forward. After a review of a new drug product, attendees will work in teams to discuss their product’s information and make recommendations for whether and how their product should be advanced through the development pipeline.

Workshop content is based on DIA's New Drug Product Development and Life Cycle Management training course. Part 1 of this workshop will focus on processes and decisions in phase 2, while Part 2 will focus on phase 3 and the decision to file.

Preregistration is required, and attendees are strongly encouraged to attend both Part 1 and Part 2.

Part 2 will take place on Monday at 11:00 am (Session #124).
