Top industry executives choose Waddell Group for their Medical Device Project Management needs because:
1) Our medical device project management process is proven to get desired results.
Our medical device project management process (as detailed below) takes into account the medical device company’s existing resources, budget, and goals. We are experts at getting work back on track and creating schedules that are dependable and realistic. We leave your team stronger than they were before.
2) Our medical device project managers are experts at Fixed Duration Projects.
Often, companies need project managers just for a certain amount of time and for a particular project. Many times they can’t hire internally as the project needs a specific kind of expertise. Our project managers – who have varied experiences with the medical device industry – get in, get the job done successfully, and get out. They are there just for the duration of the project, nothing more nothing less. Thus saving companies the headache of hiring, training, and then trying to decide what to do with the project manager after the project ends.
3) Waddell group’s project management experts seamlessly fit in.
Many companies have non-permanent projects that go on for an unknown duration. They don’t want to put current projects on hold by pulling project managers from existing projects to work on the new project or train someone new just for one project. This is where our project managers step in with their expertise, seamlessly fitting in with the company culture, project team, and requirements.
On that note, if you’re looking for the right talent and experience to get your project accomplished successfully, get in touch. Beyond essential project management skills, Waddell group’s highly experienced consultants know how to lead teams, manage in times of crisis, and influence for change.
4) Our leaders know that effective results are produced through empowered teams.
Our project managers create teams who are engaged and accountable for their role in reaching company goals. With a Waddell Group project leader at the helm:
- Sometimes on time becomes always on time.
- Usually done right becomes always done right.
- Usually meeting budget becomes always meeting budget.
- Decent quality becomes excellent quality.
- An underperforming team becomes a high-performing team.
5) We know how to run a successful project on time, and on budget.
Company executives and managers – especially the highly successful ones, good at their jobs – are already burdened with responsibilities. And adding more work to their plates is not always a good idea as it may lead to burnout. Thus causing the company to lose one of its big assets. Many companies choose to hire externally instead. Which is where we come in. Waddell Group has delivered on 600 projects and counting. Our medical device project executives and project managers get your product to market successfully. We offer expertise, intellectual property, and proven methodologies enabling a project to run on time and within budget.
6) We can provide specific talent and industry expertise that medical device companies don’t have on their team currently.
Some companies need a specific talent that they don’t have on their team currently and they can’t afford to miss here or they’d end up losing valuable funding or resources. Our project management experts are qualified across multiple niches, functionalities, and project types. Making them an easy fit for companies who need specific talent on their team.
We’ve delivered 45 PMA projects, turned around failing device manufacturing facilities, and brought hundreds of products to market across four continents.
7) Some companies need an external perspective.
Some companies need an external perspective from someone who has seen how other companies do things and can bring varied expertise to the situation while working with an internal company team. Waddell Group’s team is a set of exceptional leaders selected by our founders. We curate talent to match our clients’ needs. That includes the need for an external perspective.

8) And the right superstar.
Great leaders understand the power of each individual on their team. Waddell Group synthesizes your team’s talent with your company’s goals to produce great results. Yes, the wrong superstar may affect the team’s performance negatively. But when you bring in just the right person to lead a team, the team performance dramatically improves. Like a ‘star player’ in team-sports, this superstar will lead the team to its goals in the right way by:
- being highly skilled at what they do
- having a positive influence on the team
- meshing with others
- being aware of everyone’s strengths and weaknesses
- being a fully integrated part of the team
We can bring in the right superstar to ‘elevate the game’ of the rest of the team.
