Spread the Word — Sharing the Value of Supply Management
ISM will be participating in 2007 Supply Management Month. The theme will remain unchanged from the past two years: Supply Management: Maximizing Opportunity, Managing Risk. The Supply Management Month theme is remaining consistent with the key message being promoted in ISM’s national image campaign, which is now in its third year. The image campaign is designed to run for several years in order to make a memorable impact on the perception of supply management.
ISM offers four C.P.M. online review courses in its Knowledge Center. The C.P.M. online review courses are self-paced and accessible 24/7. These online courses supplement other exam preparation activities, are organized by job analysis tasks that correspond with actual exam material and are closely aligned with the content in the ISM C.P.M. Study Guide. Registrants have easy access to the electronic version of the ISM C.P.M. Study Guide, many sample questions with answer rationale in the Q & A section and the ability to post questions to a Content Discussion Guide through the C.P.M. online content discussion boards.
Visit the Knowledge Center today and gain access to ISM's expanded class offerings that now include Accenture's Supply Chain Academy (SCA) courses. Global in scope, these courses were developed by experts from more than 30 leading organizations, professional associations, industry consortia and educational institutions.
