Proper Time Management – Your Key to Success

If you have ever felt like you are less productive than you’d like to be? Do you easily get lost in projects that should take you a fraction of the time you actually spend on them? Well, if this sounds like you then a few time management tips may help to turn that all around. It is easy to get overwhelmed when you find yourself with multiple tasks to complete and of course, one huge looming deadline, if you have a strategy in place to deal with things, you will be amazed at how proficient you become. First of all, you need to establish a routine. Creating one will add structure to your day and will help you turn many of your repetitive tasks into habits seemingly overnight. Once they have become ingrained, they are naturally less of something you need to even think about throughout the day. Try and incorporate as many day-to -day aspects of your work into this routine and you will find more free time for other tasks. How much time do you spend waiting each day? Maybe it is waiting for a train or bus, or waiting in line for your morning coffee. You know that your day will somehow involve waiting, so why not make the most of it? Plan ahead for those periods of time, no matter how brief, to make a quick call, reply to a few e-mails or jot down a few notes. Another time management strategy may involve delegating tasks to other people. After all, why not let your support staff help you with minor projects thus freeing you...

Examples of Lean Manufacturing Success in Biopharmaceuticals

Since its full-blown development by Toyota beginning in the 1950s, lean manufacturing has been successfully implemented in various other manufacturing industries. Despite demonstrable success across several sectors, lean manufacturing solutions have been slow to take hold in the biopharmaceuticals field, and where they have, it has been just a tenuous hold. Some analysts and consultants think it’s time for that to change. In an article titled “Harvesting the Benefits of LEAN in Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing” (BioPharm International 22.10, October 2009), Thibaud S. Stoll and Jean-Francois Guilland state early on that “direct applications [of lean manufacturing solutions] in the field of biopharmaceutical manufacturing have been quite limited to date because of concerns about the complexity of the associated technology and stringent regulatory requirements.” But they also maintain that “implementing LEAN the proper way in biopharmaceutical manufacturing can bring huge benefits and help the industry to deal with increasing pressure on development and manufacturing costs, as well as with challenges in compliance quality.” Then these authors adduce two case studies to support their case. One of these involves a lean manufacturing implementation in a “large-scale cell-culture facility, with three independent manufacturing lines using 3,000-L and 10,000-L bioreactors. The facility is used to produce clinical active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) material, primarily for Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials, of various biopharmaceuticals in development.” This plant also conducts technical development in adjacent labs. After an initial assessment by lean manufacturing consultants to determine the primary problem areas where improvements could be made, specific projects were clearly defined and steps delineated. Two of the major goals, along with practicable metrics, in this implementation were increasing...

5 Common Marketing Excuses – And How to Turn Them Into Business Success

1. ‘It’s not for businesses like mine’ Businesses big or small should include marketing as an integral part of their yearly business plan. It’s the third most important aspect of maintaining business success. Many businesses assume that once they are up and open people will just come knocking on their door. However, experience has taught me that nobody knows who or where you are unless you tell him or her! Sounds simple but it is amazing how many businesses fail every year because of this simple assumption. Remember there is always another business just waiting to take your place. Marketing is for everyone. 2. ‘We don’t have time’ Quite simply – make time! The first thing to do is review your business, products or services. Focus on areas that need bringing to your customers’ attention. It’s amazing how many businesses don’t think ahead. Hiring a brand and marketing professional to help you create a simple marketing plan will help you manage deadlines, and will keep you one step ahead of your competition. 3. ‘We don’t have the budget’ Every business should set aside at least 5 – 10% of revenue for marketing every year. But marketing doesn’t have to be expensive. There are hundreds of low cost ways to promote your business, from promotional t-shirts (everyone loves a useful freebie!) to blogs – items that either evoke a response or that customers get to keep. Word of mouth is obviously one of the best forms of public marketing. It also helps to use a variety of different marketing methods; just ensure you have a strong message with a clear...
