Integrated Project Management

CSSi LifeSciences provides all the relevant consulting and embedded management capabilities required to support drug and medical device development from discovery to commercialization.

Our approach is based on understanding your unique needs and challenges and crafting an integrated development plan to meet them.

On-Demand Development Team—A Proven, Flexible Model

The development of a novel drug or medical device requires numerous experts from diverse fields working together during product development. Unfortunately, assembling an expert team can be prohibitively expensive for small companies who are forced to bring in individual consultants as the needs arise. This approach typically leads to disjointed tasks not aligned with the product strategy, or a development strategy that does not consider the numerous phases that are appropriate for the stage of development. Therefore, many virtual and emerging growth companies are looking for the help and experience only an accomplished consulting group can provide.

CSSi LifeSciences has a dedicated team ready to help you accelerate your product to commercialization. Our consultative, problem-solving approach is based on first understanding your unique challenges and then crafting a milestone-based and flexible plan to achieve your goals. We utilize a stepwise approach that is appropriate to each phase of development.
