Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 6, 2008
Gregory Cuppan, Managing Principal of McCulley/Cuppan will be a guest speaker at the Drug Information Association (DIA) Annual Meeting June 22-26, 2008 in Boston, MA. Mr. Cuppan joins a group of industry thought-leaders and experts at this important pharmaceutical industry conference. Mr. Cuppan will make a presentation regarding how to enhance review practices within the pharmaceutical research and development enterprise.
In his presentation, Mr. Cuppan will examine how review work practices may be an organizational liability, compromising productivity as well as the value of critical document deliverables. His presentation will suggest that pharmaceutical companies are largely unaware of how current practices often negatively impact document development lifecycles and the communication quality of the final document product. His presentation will also suggest that insufficient attention is given to how documents can be efficiently developed and strategically reviewed to leverage the organizational knowledge. Mr Cuppan will then provide a summary of review best practices.

Mr. Cuppan is the Managing Principal of McCulley/Cuppan LLC, a group he co-founded.
