CPO in the Making Workshop

Fall 2014
Tempe, AZ

Groom your high-potential procurement and supply chain executives (or yourself) for their next position at this highly experiential workshop. They will work in small groups on action-based case studies using tools and templates that enhance their leadership, business acumen and decision-making skills. Your executives will also examine best practices in supply chain integration and financial measures. Plus, they will understand what makes them a best practice and how to best use financial and analytical measures to make important business decisions.

You won't find this type of focused hands-on training anywhere else. These rising stars will be coached in small groups by Bill Michels, president of ADR North America — an ISM Services company, along with several very special guest speakers. This class can help you check off succession planning from your to-do list.
