Most organizations don’t have a clear picture of how proficient they are at starting clinical trials, but most recognize they can do better. In fact, the majority of executives rate their organizations as laggards when it comes to study startup maturity. They don’t have the processes, people, data, and integration required to dramatically reduce startup timelines and achieve their goals.

Yet, most organizations want to – and actively seek to – achieve leadership in study startup—they simply don’t have the process methodologies in place to get there.

Are you like most organizations, lagging behind? Perhaps you’ve taken steps to integrate internal systems to some degree. Maybe you’re further along than most and you have repeatable processes that allow you to consistently achieve your goals.

Knowing where you are today is the first step in identifying how far you have to go to become a study startup leader.

Now you can test your study startup maturity!

Take goBalto’s Study Startup Maturity Quiz and find out where you currently fall on the study startup maturity scale. The quiz is based on interviews with 200 clinical operations professionals across 100 organizations.

  • Find and proactively eliminate bottlenecks
