Tips For A Better Project Management Tracker – Clinical Research


hey guys Serg here and today we’re going
to talk about more tips for a better tracker hey guys ECR G here and today
we’re gonna be talking about tips for making better trackers now this is for
people who are either project managers or assistant project managers or you
know any anybody out there in the clinical research industry who is going
to be looking at and maintaining a tracker now this is specifically a
project management video because project managers are people in the project
management side of things typically deal with a lot of trackers and that’s what I
know about because that’s how I came up in the industry so that we’re gonna talk
about some tips to go along with that now I know a lot of people who watch
these videos are new to clinical research or are interested in clinical
research or just wanting to know what it’s like in a professional environment
so you may not even know what a tracker is so that’s the first thing we’re gonna
talk about what is a tracker well a tracker is basically a fancy way of
saying an Excel spreadsheet or a table and it’s a table that keeps track and
the word tracker of certain things so in clinical research we have something
called a study contact list tracker a list or tracker which has everybody who
is on the study so from the project director from the project manager to you
know the CR raised to the CMA is anybody who has any interaction with that study
is going to be on that tracker and on that tracker is gonna be information
like email address phone number you know things to keep to keep in contact with
that person if necessary and just as a overall way to keep track of certain
things you know if they if their CV has been approved if they’ve been given
access to certain systems like metadata CTMS or if they’ve been given access to
the TMF things like that so it’s just a good way of keeping track of certain
things so now that we know what a tracker is
let’s go ahead and get into some tips for better maintaining one so the first
tip I have for you is less is more this is not a place for you to put a whole
bunch of information that isn’t necessary this is a place for you to put
only the necessary information and the reason why you only want to put
necessary information on there is because you don’t want to confuse
anybody who’s looking at it you don’t you want to make it so that they can get
into the tracker and get out because speed is the game you don’t want to have
someone go in there for one thing and have to navigate through ten things just
to get the one piece of information they have so you want to keep it nice
succinct and concise and that’s gonna help the tracker be overall better you
don’t want to put too much information there just enough is perfect so you want
to keep it concise so less is more and this and like we mentioned earlier speed
is everything so even when you’re making a tracker if you’ve made a tracker
before just make a copy of that tracker and insert the the new information the
new personnel the new study information into that tracker don’t go and try and
recreate the wheel every single time if you have a tracker that people on your
past teams liked and that you liked and that was concise just copy that for the
new team and you know fill in the necessary information replace the
necessary information don’t try and recreate the wheel maybe
you might you know change a color here and there but you don’t want to you know
take all that time to recreate everything and type out all the columns
and things like that if you have something that works stick to it like I
said speed is everything you don’t need to go wasting your time doing something
you’ve already done so that kind of goes in with less is more as well but speed
is everything and then the third thing we’re gonna talk about with the tracker
is readability like I said you don’t you don’t want to bog it down you don’t want
to you know make it not concise you don’t want to put a lot more information
that is necessary on a tracker that you have to keep track of because
and it’s going to bog down people it’s gonna take more time for them to get the
information they need from it and ultimately it’s gonna slow the team down
it’s gonna slow you down and it’s gonna be a lot harder for you to maintain the
more information you have on there so you definitely want to make sure that it
is concise for the reason that it’s gonna increase the readability and it’s
gonna keep everybody moving at a great speed when it comes to clinical trials
so those are the three tips I have for you
readability speed is everything and less is more when it comes to trackers like I
said before don’t try and reinvent the wheel if you have something that works
copy it and use it use it over and over and over again and that’s gonna help
increase your speed as well and you can use those same tips for so many other
things that you may be doing in clinical research as well which is no yume
balancing a lot of things as a entry-level clinical research person and
there’s gonna be a learning curve in the beginning so you want to maximize where
you can and not end up doing a lot more work that you have to do so we’re gonna
use a lot of these same techniques with some of the other things that I’m going
to teach you guys but as far as tracker goes these are great tips now if you
haven’t seen the video I did on how to create action log that’s kind of like a
tracker we’ve done a tutorial on that maybe we’ll do another video on how to
actually make a tracker will make a tracker for you guys and if you’d like
