Buyers, supply managers, purchasing managers, purchasing agents, negotiators, contract managers, and financial managers dedicated to strengthening the bottomline will all find this program invaluable.
The Institute for Supply Management™, established in 1915, is the world's leading educator of supply management professionals and is a valuable resource for decision makers in major markets, companies, and government. In May 2001 the membership of NAPM voted to change the association's name from the National Association of Purchasing Management to the Institute for Supply Management™ to reflect the increasing strategic and global significance of supply management.
