This article describes the data management in a pharmaceutical development project. The project team needs to understand what is happening and to make the information accessible to management, so they can take the right decision. The management group governing the project consists of representatives from such diverse areas as production, marketing and regulatory affairs. They are not presented with preclinical findings on a daily basis, but, they appreciated the depth of the information they received from the project team, and the effort of the team to make it as easily accessible as possible. Details on the drug development project and the data presentation are given.
