Appleton Greene & Co Global – Executive Summary


Business Administration by Appleton Greene & Co Global – Montreal Toronto New York London Boston Biotechnology Healthcare Consultancy Pharmaceutical

Our analysis, undertaken during the last 5 years, has illustrated that many companies invest heavily in the acquisition of pre-packaged solutions, without needing or using the entire package. As economists say, there is money left on the table. Dr. Popa has created a solution by providing tailor made services for organizations that want to run their projects on time and on budget, while adhering to the highest quality standards. Business administration is the process of managing a business or non-profit organization, so that it remains stable and continues to grow. The administration of a business includes the performance or management of business operations and decision making, as well as the efficient organization of people and other resources, to direct activities toward common goals and objectives. In general, administration refers to the broader management function, including the associated finance, personnel and MIS services. In some analyses, management is viewed as a subset of administration, specifically associated with the technical and operational aspects of an organization, distinct from executive or strategic functions. Administrators, broadly speaking, engage in a common set of functions to meet the organization’s goals. – Appleton Greene & Co Global

Medical affairs

Appleton Greene & Co Global – The regulatory process can look very complex, whether your company is a multinational pharmaceutical or medical device company, or a company that is newly emerging in the marketplace. With proper planning and groundwork, successful submissions do not require last minute scrambles and overtime. Due to our extensive experience we can help you to deliver electronic submissions on time, on budget, and with less stress. Our Regulatory Affairs department are fully trained and experienced in preparing all major regulatory submissions for Phase II-III clinical trials, including complex multinational submissions for pharmaceutical products, biological products and medical devices. We prepare a full range of drug regulatory submissions for product licensing in Canada, USA and Europe: Abbreviated new drug applications (ANDA); Biologics license applications (BLA); Clinical trial authorization/application (CTA); Clinical trial notifications (CTN); Common technical document (CTD); Drug master files (DMF); Investigational device exemptions (IDE); Investigational new drug applications (INDA); Marketing authorization applications (MAA); New drug applications (NDA); New drug submissions (NDS); Orphan drug applications (ODA); Pre-market approvals (PMA).

Corporate change

Appleton Greene & Co Global – The linking of new leadership with attempted cultural change is not surprising when you consider that leadership and culture are essentially two sides of the same coin. A new CEO (or an existing one) can delegate many tasks, but the task of setting the culture cannot be delegated. Why? Because there is compelling evidence that business performance and culture are closely linked. If the CEO wants the business to achieve its corporate objectives, then the culture has to be right. In a major research program, Harvard professors John Kotter and James Heskett found consistent correlation between robust, engaged cultures and high-performance business results. Organisational culture is a problem when the way in which the organisation usually operates puts obstacles in the way towards achievement. Some examples: the goals of the organisation demand an external orientation of the members, but the organisational culture is characterized by internal orientation; transparency is needed to be accountable and to function democratically, but the tradition to involve family members and to favor them, may makes transparency cloudy; being value driven as a main characteristic of a NGO stands not well with the business-like attitude of our professionals; productivity, being directed towards goals, may be hindered by the grown habit to intervene in each other’s work, directing most of the energy to each other instead of to the product; the not-outspoken rule not to intervene in each other’s work (the non-intervention principle) may hinder the ideal working method of sharing ideas, innovations, solutions and problems; because of the one-sided fixation on ideology, satisfaction of personal needs may be considered as forbidden; a grown emphasis on output may have led to the situation in which reflection (base for learning) is considered a waste of time; organisational culture is not the result of just a decision, but the outcome of a lasting process, in which the attitude, beliefs and behavior of people are gradually shaped. Organisational culture, even if not objectively effective, is always a logical adaptation to a changed environment. Organisational culture may be compared to coping mechanisms: once effective in one specific situation, but internalized, unconscious familiar, and hardly noticeable for the owner. We will give you the processes and will guide you through the complex processes of corporate change and will make it a success.

Regulatory compliance

Appleton Greene & Co Global – The regulatory process can look very complex, whether your company is a multinational pharmaceutical or medical device company or whether a company that is newly emerging in the marketplace. With proper planning and groundwork, successful submissions do not require last minute scrambles and overtime. Due to our extensive experience we can help you deliver electronic submissions on time, on budget, and with less stress. Having documentation accessible and organized for regulatory research and inspections for the clinical trials and then for the whole life of the product is one of the most important regulatory aspects. We help you through our specific and Customizable Document Management System (C-DMS) to have all documents filed and accessible all the time. For the clinical research sector this also opens us the possibility to create an electronic submission so that FDA reviewers receive them the day they are published. In addition we conduct critical appraisal and gap analysis, a technique for determining what useful information is missing in a submission and suggesting solutions for solving the problem of our clients’ submissions. Electronic submission services are available in addition to traditional paper document services.

During the preparation process, client’s team is able to get to know our candidates for Project Management role and identify the most suitable person.

They are provided and use the state-of-the-art technology to be in real time communication with the sites, the client and the study team in order to maintain control over the project. Our Project Managers have to respond quickly to the client’s needs, to anticipate possible problems and to provide the best solution available.

We want our clients to return to us; We provide a higher level of trial detail because we know that this detail is critical to the success of the project and this could be a life and death situation for smaller clients.
