Project Management (proj' ekt man'ij-mənt): 1. The subtle art of creating a climate in which high-performance teams feel comfortable taking risks; 2. The rare ability to translate invention into innovation; 3. The practice of linking compelling visions to value-creating, 'implementable' strategies; 4. A commitment to engaging fully the unique talents of highly intelligent people; 5. A leadership style with an enduring and consistent focus on people and the decisions they make.
ZephyrBiotech LLC has radically re-defined Project Management to support the needs of virtual, emergent and early stage life science companies.
