Change control is a critical component of regulatory, quality and compliance management. Regulated organizations are mandated to establish change control procedures as a means of maintaining product quality, safety and assuring FDA and ISO compliance. The three key challenges facing Life Sciences Organizations today in relation to change management are:
- Assessing the impact of product and process changes across functions
- Executing product and process changes with clear definition of roles & responsibilities
- Identifying the right measures that drive the desired behavior, business performance and outcomes
