Speaking from Experience: Lessons Learned from Risk-Based Monitoring Implementations

To maximize the ROI on R&D spend, Biopharma needs to transform clinical development. Current views of risk-based monitoring show it can reduce costs, while having a positive impact on quality and patient safety. To achieve these goals, change is required. By discussing numerous examples of RBM implementations, attendees will gain an understanding as to the changes required in roles, processes and procedures, as well as how technology is enabling this transformation.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 570 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 10 trips to carry that many people.

The Tipping Point for Modern India

History scripted – Madison Square Garden, New York

There are definite points in a Nation’s history when an astounding and progressive change begins. A change that is non-trivial and mostly revolutionary.

There was adequate hint of this for India, when Narendra Modi took charge as the Prime Minister early 2014, and the hint seems like evidence after hearing Modi share his vision at Madison Square Garden, New York this Sunday, 28-Sep-2014.

What works?

Stunning focus on fundamental governance while maintaining the confidence and panache of a leader in the modern world, Modi weaved the pre-freedom struggle into the new age effort of nation building. Remarkable simplicity.

What’s refreshing?

It is great to see a Leader who thinks it is not because of him that dreams will become reality, but it is because of the potential of the people who will help him make it real. Enlisting each Indian to participate in this movement and evoking a sense of accountability and pride at the same time is a vision that is compelling.

incredible india

From the farms of India to Mother Ganges, every aspect which is a priority to the Indian government today is one that will ignite passion in Indians for a much larger mission of building a great nation, India is destined to be.

Yes it is a long road ahead and a bigger yes… that the first few strides have been taken. India has arrived.

First day of Autumn

Celebrate change

A tiny wave of excitement as today marks the ‘First day of Autumn’. Also, it is an Equinox which means the day and night are almost exactly equal. The start of ‘Fall’.

Who moved my leaves

Autumn brings – an endearing transition to an earthly brown shade, cool gentle breeze ushering the winter to wade and fallen leaves on earth like a carpet you made. Nature in inspirational form.

Like trees in autumn, there is a cycle of change our personalities live through. If put to a time scale, an year is a good measure of when you pause and reflect on your own evolving identity.

If we take the analogy of trees in Fall, we as individuals could follow suite and shed a few leaves ourselves. It could be habits we want to break, attitudes we want to drop, activities we no longer enjoy or for some of us merely the weight we would like to shed, physical or otherwise!

Trails of North Carolina

Like trees cast aside leaves only to grow green with renewed life we should grow new habits that are of value, wear attitudes that help succeed and embrace ways of living that bring vitality to our existence and to those around.

So this autumn, I look to shed the burden of purposeless thought, enjoy the “now”, learn new skills and do more for someone who needs help the most.

You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you. – John Wooden

To the spirit of Equinox, we should continue to strive for a balance in our identities that generates strength and compassion. Everything else follows.

What thoughts come to your mind with autumn and equinox? Tell you story.

Independence | The value


15.Aug.1947 – Tribute

Carrying on with the spirit of thoughts I expressed on 04th of Jul which marked the American Independence day, some compelling lessons stare at us today, as the calendar proudly turned to 15th of August.

For India, the glory of one victory that has held strong for 68 years must now inspire a story of greatness that shall redefine freedom.  A freedom from the ordinary.  A freedom that will liberate us from political stigma and social dogma.

The global canvas is waiting for the tricolor to shine beyond the occasional spark. To become the torch light that grows hope, confidence and fortune. To become more of the land that was, is and will be revered, for time to come.

 This day, when a nation of 1.2 billion stands in attention to praise the sweet victory of “independence”, the same populace has to surpass the challenge of daily…

2014: Resolution – Finding more of You

Making resolutions? Indeed that day of the year again. Usher 2014!


In creating this blog site as evolving identity, one compelling thought was around progressing individual development. From one level to the next.

2014 could serve as fertile grounds with perfect opportunities to achieve part of that evolution. With a resolution!

Of many, 3 things will certainly help plough the land and sow the seeds:

  • 1] Add a non-academic skill to your quiver:
    • Creative or artistic endeavors are gratifying and liberating. Learn a musical instrument, paint your imagination or simply write your thoughts and share with your network. Bring at least one new skill to your repertoire this new year.

Your personality is a fountain waiting to spurt. Get out of its way.

  • 2] Celebrate your strength:
    • Be it your unflinching discipline, enviable interpersonal skills, ability to ideate, power to execute or your extraordinary commitment – do a little more of it this year, consciously. Know it, play it. This will get you to focus on what works for you as against what does not.


Aspire and achieve brilliance in your being.  Efforts realize thoughts, accomplishments realize dreams. So go the extra yard this new year and shine your way through.

 Some dream all their lives, some live all their dreams. – Rajneesh Patil

To your success,

Have a wonderful year ahead. Cheers!

Of Windmills and Minds

Thoughts like windmills hold immense energy for glorious possibilities. And like windmills, an outcome is only generated if you harness the power innate. The science of wind power though simple is fascinating at many levels.

To me, it is a compelling analogy to how our minds work. Here’s how:

Wind Energy

Begin to factor the enormous number of thoughts produced in the span of a day. Several hundreds if not thousands. Stating an obvious fact… but isn’t that staggering?

Through the relatively simple science of wind harnessing, >2.5% of the worlds’ energy requirement is now originating from a natural resource – the wind. That will continue to make a phenomenal impact to efforts in producing green energy.

If that is an exact science of tapping into a natural resource, there is an even more exact approach to human innovation and the power to excel in what you do. Harness the mind.

 Wind for windmills and thoughts for mind. Harness the energy – Rajneesh Patil

Begin to funnel thoughts and start spinning the windmills in your mind. Filter the thoughts to start generating ideas that can produce what you desire. And continue to strive untiringly, to implement those ideas. It is only that complete cycle when followed through in its entirety will the results arrive.

Be it windmills or mind, the flow is on and it is perennial. What matters is whether or not it generates useful energy.

So bring the technology of disciplined dreaming, purposeful action and unwavering commitment to your mind. Let the mills run. Let the power out.

So: How do ‘you‘ channel the energy from your thoughts? Keen to hear your mind.

P.S: Though “windmills and the mind” came as a striking idea, Google helped me realize this has been a song title for a few decades now. Cheers to Noel Harrison who got there first!
