Planning is paramount in SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT whether it be in professional development, supply chain management, supplier selection, or negotiation. It is the key component.
ISM’s Certified Professional in Supplier Diversity™ (CPSD™) certification program is one of the few that exists for this growing and much-needed specialization. Many companies engage in supplier diversity to be socially responsible or to meet customer or federal requirements, but don’t understand its true profit potential. As a CPSD, you’ll be the guiding hand with the knowledge and training to show an organization how supplier diversity can improve the bottom line and accelerate innovation by becoming more efficient and by getting exposure to new customer bases.
