Discussion Forum Purpose
ISM Discussion Forums provide a communication link for those involved in supply management to share information and knowledge. When adding your thoughts and comments, please stay on matters relevant to supply management (e.g., certification and professional credentials, affiliate management, eCommerce, technology, diversity, etc).
