  • Software Development Life Cycle forms have been completed

  • Enforces Astellas, industry and regulatory standards in programmed deliverables (including CDISC standards for datasets and internal TLF standards).

  • Ensures that study-level and integrated (cross-study) programmed deliverables are ready to be used in regulatory submissions

  • Actively participates in the development and implementation of programming tools for Statistical Programming infrastructure projects.

  • Leads Statistical programming activities related to the disclosure of Astellas clinical trial data to regulatory agencies and researcher-based sites.

  • Is responsible to efficiently communicate, at regular intervals, to functional management on study/project/initiative status and resource issues

Quantitative Dimensions:

Each year, the Senior Manager is involved in eight to 12 studies and one to four compounds within a TA. The Senior Manager indirectly provides oversight of eight to 16 statistical programmers or FSP resources.
