The Project Manager will work with the sponsor to schedule and conduct a Start-Up Meeting.  The purpose of the Project Start-Up Meeting is to assemble the Concentrics-Sponsor Project Team and to review key timelines, deliverables and issues associated with the protocol.  Proactive planning and discussion are primary keys to success.  As a result of this meeting, Concentrics will prepare a Study Success Plan and several guiding documents.
