Biomedical development is a multidisciplinary effort and statistic is essential to it. The latter is understood by few and shunned by most. This should not be so. Strategy and Statistics relates statisticians' contributions to clinical trial teams and explains their role in R & D. Concepts are presented with real-world examples and based on the author's over 20-year experience in both industry and academia. The book aims to facilitate interactions between bio-statisticians and the wide variety of individuals engaged in clinical development. These include professionals from disciplines such as life sciences, project management, medicine, engineering, physics, nursing, marketing, monitoring and finance. Strategy and Statistics is written in a conversational tone with humour. It is non-technical. The book is highly accessible to those outside of statistics and in it. Written in a conversational tone. It is non-technical and will make for easy and entertaining reading; requires no previous knowledge of statistics. Real-world examples - mostly those encountered by the author. These provide a practical, "how to" guide in clinical development. Will promote productive cooperation between statistical professionals and others and so, will contribute to R & D success.
