March 2012 Research Alert

This month we've added five new studies to the Best Practice Database. Three of the five new studies deal with staff and spend benchmarks for the Regulatory Affairs function at medical device organizations, one study examines resources and training approaches for market research training and development groups and the last document explores internal communications involving middle management.

A new report was also published in March that reviews the medical device sector's current approach to conducting clinical trials in emerging areas of the world, in particular the use of outsourcing. The six new Best Practices, LLC studies listed below under Newly Added Research explore how leading companies have made their operations more effective across these different areas.

If you are not a member of the Best Practice Database but would still like to receive a monthly Research Alert via email, just sign-up here.
