This application is for a 12-week internship role from June - August 2023. Resume review begins in January 2023.
Regulatory CMC supports our Pharmaceutical Operations and Technology organization by influencing, enabling, and sustaining regulatory approvals of innovative therapies to serve patients. We present Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control (CMC) documentation to global regulators and manage subsequent negotiations necessary to obtain or maintain marketing authorization for the products concerned. Within Regulatory CMC, the Regulatory Intelligence, Policy, and Knowledge Management team, and the Strategic Operations and Business excellence teams are focused on driving continuous improvement and transformative ways of working across all products.
Successful application of Digital and Knowledge Management (KM) capabilities requires shifts in mindsets and rely heavily on people to drive meaningful change to optimize and transform our ways of working. These concepts are fairly nascent within the organization and require strong communications and learning to effectively brand them and the value they could bring to the organization.
Weeks 1-2: The knowledge acquisition phase will include regular meetings with the digital & KM leads, and the digital realization office with a goal after two weeks of clear understanding of the problem being solved and expectations for the deliverables.
Weeks 3-5: The information processing phase will focus on gathering existing collateral (e.g., training materials, tools, reports etc.), and brainstorming a framework for effective communication and training across digital and KM within Regulatory CMC.
Weeks 6-10: The strategy development phase will focus on developing a communication strategy and a learning strategy across KM and digital. This strategy will help drive adoption of relevant tools, increase our digital and KM fluency, and establish quantitative & qualitative methods for measuring progress in such areas.
Weeks 11-12: The close-out will focus on rolling out the communication and learning plans to the department, capturing the process for future maintenance of these plans, and developing a formal read-out for the project (PowerPoint).
