What makes the CPSM® different from other certifications? It encompasses all areas of global supply management and incorporates highly strategic skill sets that are proactive instead of just reactive, tactical or operational skill sets. The CPSM® gives you the multifaceted foundation to continuously improve and innovate in this highly competitive global marketplace.
The ISM Web site has a section called My ISM Account. In this area, you will find tools on managing your information on the ISM Web site.
Spread the Word — Sharing the Value of Supply Management
Promoting an event, organization or person can take on many forms. A feature story can be written, or you might see your local affiliate's event listed in a community calendar — sometimes only a photo and caption will appear highlighting a past affiliate event.
The April 23, 2009 satellite seminar, "Preparing to Negotiate Onshore and Offshore" will explore best practices for achieving negotiation success.
