Whether you have an established medical device business or are starting up a new company, staffing efficiently is always a challenge. There is always a limit on how many engineers and staff positions you can fund, and the wide array of skills necessary over the course of developing a medical device often requires dozens of separate skill sets:
• Head of R&D
• Program/project manager
• Engineers: Design, clinical, quality control, electrical, mechanical
• Specialists: Machine shop, injection molding, proto-typing, regulatory
It’s not only challenging to find the right fit for each skill, often you’ll need more than one or two pairs of hands – if you want to meet your milestones, you may need as many as 10 from time to time. At other times, you may only need one person to do what is necessary. Click here to read more about FTEs in medical device development.
With the right type of staffing, at the level you need when you need, you’ll be assured of getting the best efforts of those trained for the specific task you need to accomplish. When your staff is stressed, overworked, or asked to work on tasks for which they aren’t trained, it can lead to errors or missed opportunities… which, of course, leads to lost time and money.
