(Tempe, AZ) — Using the cornerstones of business and real-world success stories, the Institute for Supply Management's™ (ISM) Extending Your Influence for Even Better Performance in Your Supply Network: A Supply Management Conference presents new trends, fresh ideas, and practical solutions that directly impact an organization's success.

This Conference, being held in Scottsdale, Arizona, November 17-19, 2003, will focus on the four distinct supply chains (or networks) that drive business: financial, informational, relational, and physical. Only when the four networks are working in harmony can an organization develop a winning strategy. It is only when supply management professionals are actively involved in the process and development can an organization realize its full potential.

Effective supply management professionals have the responsibility to deliver value to all facets of the network. ISM is presenting this conference in support of that model. This program focuses on lessons learned and real-world successes with new perspectives and proven strategies to give an organization a competitive edge. Best practices and success stories cover a variety of industries including manufacturing, educational providers, retail, financial management, technology, and non-manufacturing services. Workshop speakers represent decades of experience and dedication to a successful supply management framework.
