Welcome to the exciting world of CPSM – Certified Professional in Supply Management. ISM launched the Certified Professional in Supply Management® (CPSM®) program in May 2008.

If you are new to supply management, have been in the field for a number of years, or are considering this as a career, you are in an exciting field, because there is probably no other function in a company, (with exception to sales) that can have a more positive impact on the bottom line. In fact, as we settle in to a down economy, organizations are relying more on the supply management function to increase profitability than marketing and sales, because in many companies, customer orders continue to remain flat. CPSM, which is a much less expensive commitment, both in terms of finances and time, is highly valued, both by the profession as well as by best-in-class corporations, such as the one that you work for.
Keep in mind that your upcoming examinations were developed by a team of supply management practitioners, educators and consultants using a comprehensive exam specification. This specification is based on an extensive cross-sector job analysis, which is periodically updated and includes the key areas of (a) manufacturing, (b) U.S. government/prime contractor, (c) state and local government, (d) institutions, (e) services, (f) retail, and (g) food.
ISM undertook an enormous task in developing the CPSM. ISM recognized that changes in the field demand that the CPSM reflect the skills necessary for both today and tomorrow for a supply management professional. The CPSM addresses the realities of supply management, as well as workplace complexities including globalization, greater use of technology and expanded competencies that supply management professionals employ to drive value in their organizations.
