Supply Management News & Reports

Is It Time to Decouple Your Supply Chain from China?

May 10, 2022

The economic, business and moral costs of sourcing from China continue to accelerate, as integrating the nation into the global economic order hasn’t improved its human rights record or advanced the cause of democracy.

Being certified by ISM, whether it's a CPSM or CPSD, is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Those four letters after your name carry a lot of weight in the global supply management field because ISM certification has been respected as the foundational benchmark by the profession for nearly 40 years.
