  3. Communications Assessment • Hired in March 2008 to enhance communication within Partners Research Management (RM) and between RM and the research community • Given the size of that community, divided my assessment into four phases: • RM employees and BWH and MGH department employees • McLean and Spaulding department employees • BWH and MGH PIs • McLean and Spaulding PIs

  4. Communications Assessment • Launched a “meet and greet” tour during first six weeks to discuss communication • Met with • 10 department employees from BWH • 9 department employees from MGH • 13 RM and Partners Clinical Research Office (PCRO) employees

  5. Communications Assessment • Several themes resulted from these meetings: • Research Management is viewed as a “black hole” • Communications are seen as reactive mandates • Lack of reliable information and limited communication about RM roles/responsibilities • Issue of relevant communication balanced between over- and under-communicating • Limited opportunities for two-way communication
