ClearTrial, the leading provider of Clinical Trial Operations (CTO) software, today announced that Molly Blake-Michaels, Director of Clinical Services at ClearTrial, has been selected to speak at the CBI Project Management conference in Chicago, IL on May 19th, 2010. Project planning and tracking, re-forecasting, and accruals management are some of the critical processes she will address, providing project managers with a framework to effectively handle change within a clinical trial lifecycle.

Molly Blake-Michaels will explore the most commonly used project management methodologies and models including Activity Based Costing and Earned Value Management (EVM) and best practices for getting vital project metrics to the right people at the right time.

Attendees will learn:

  • Difference between benchmarking and Activity Based Costing models
  • The concept of Earned Value Management (EVM)
  • Proven techniques for accurately managing accruals based on when the work is performed
  • Clinical project management best practices for increasing visibility, efficiency, responsiveness and performance

CBI's Project Management conference is attended by project management professionals around the country seeking information about how to better forecast, budget and allocate resources, achieve timely results, and manage and build in contingency planning to manage and mitigate risk. As 40% of R&D budgets are allocated to clinical trial costs and more than 80% of clinical trials are late and over budget, taking proactive steps to more effectively facilitate the clinical trial process is essential.

Attendees can also visit ClearTrial in the exhibit hall to see practical demonstrations of how some of the world's leading Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies are using ClearTrial as the foundation for their innovative project management best practices.

CBI's 2010 Project Management conference will be held at the Allerton Hotel in Chicago, IL, May 19-20, 2010. For more information and to register for the conference, visit
