Functionally Aligned Strategic Team (FAST)

What is FAST?

Our FAST program is a subset of our FSP outsourcing model and is designed to maximize efficiency, quality, and value in your R&D efforts. The Functionally Aligned Strategic Team is made up of SMEs from functional areas and assigned to your study/studies exactly when you need them, at exactly the level you need, and for exactly the right duration.





This program may include full FTEs and/or fractional FTEs based on the nature of the project.

The FAST program is best implemented when there is a finite and unmet need such as:


The FAST Program

Specifically designed to complement your team and meet the needs of your study, program, or project.

How it Works

A lead Strategy Advisor from Harbor Clinical will meet with you and your team to gain an understanding of the specific needs and goals.


With that, a proposal is quickly developed and presented. Depending on the scope of the project, our FAST will be in place in a matter of days. A lead point person is assigned and, where appropriate, a governance structure is established.


We will design and propose the right level of governance for the project, bearing in mind that the FAST program may be implemented on small or large projects.
