The CPSCM™ – THE Fortune 500 Certification Program of Choice™ is originally approved by The prestigious University of Houston (UoH), and accredited by the Center for Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Excellence (CA, USA). The CPSCM™ Certification Program captures the essence of the top issues and opportunities that purchasing and supply chain senior executives need to know and need to be doing to enable their success, delegates will have proven tools that not only demonstrate how the organization can do better today, but also leverage on research and practise that has been tested with dozens of executive interviews, hundreds of global corporations and with advanced higher education institutions as well.
The CPSCM™ Graduation Program is for experienced practitioners and those who are in senior leadership positions. Everything learnt will be actionable immediately, with templates, process steps and examples to get your organization going. You will know exactly how to drive these strategies yourself, and will know how to drive them in your organization. This is not something that can be taught in any other seminar or certification series, nor should you be obtaining those other certification by ordering and reading books and taking exams.
What if you could learn skills that would allow you to double your cost savings, slash negotiation cycle time, almost eliminate supplier excursions (because the focus shifts from fire fighting to prevention), and have 4 hours a day completely free on your calendar to focus on more strategic initiatives at your pace? What is it worth for you to gain the confidence, the skills, and the capabilities to outcompete every person in your Industry, and have the capability to double your revenue in just a few years? The architects of these powerful materials did just that with their careers, and now they are giving YOU these Insider Power Secrets of the Masters.

HERE IS JUST A GLIMPSE OF SOME OF THE HUNDREDS OF COMPANIES WHO HAVE HAD THEIR EMPLOYEES TRAINED ON EXCLUSIVE CONTENT FROM OUR CPSCM™ CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Your Career And Income Trajectory Will Catapult
You’re going to learn the proprietary training from whom has been called upon to speak to the 50 Chief Purchasing Officers of the United States (with a collective $3.2 Trillion US budget!) and Harvard University’s world renowned Supply Chain Management program.
Complacency is the biggest threat to your career. Invest in your career now… or you can always keep doing what you’ve always been doing
Here’s what you are likely looking forward to in your career in procurement if you keep doing what you always have been doing: You will be part of the 95% in procurement who start and stay in the lower ranks and live mostly in frustration because they can’t stop spinning their wheels.
Lack of sufficient preparation for high stakes negotiations. Rogue customers that do what they want and get away with it by calling procurement a “road block”. Tough contracts and slow legal departments. Suppliers that can’t perform right to save their life. Thankless managers who burden you with administrative responsibilities and wonder why you don’t get strategic results. Internal Auditors that have to find something to report. 3% raises year after year. Hearing everyone talk about supply chain management but having no clue what to do about it. 80% or more of every day spent on unplanned activities (“fire fighting”) that don’t count as accomplishments on your status report or your performance review. No budget for training and lack of internal training resources. Less headcount but more expectations: small and diverse businesses, green business, and many flavor of the month programs that management dreams up or agrees to.
Have you experienced everything above? Is this you? Is this what you signed up for in Supply Chain? Is this how you want to spend your career?
BOTTOM LINE: IF YOU KEEP DOING THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AND HOPE FOR DIFFERENT RESULTS, YOUR CAREER WILL STAGNATE

Supply Chain, Procurement, Purchasing, Logistic, Sourcing, Supply, Buyer, Category/Materials, Legal, Contracts
Also Attend If You Are:
End user and engineering teams – because the program will focus on how to take cost out of the equation (in the product or service design itself) before the team ever go out to bid – which requires end user and engineering involvement. The program will examine the roles/responsibilities on the negotiation on team which they will be a part of. It will cover how to engage with these teams early to get better purchasing results, and finally walk the participant through how to redefine what is being purchased in terms of desired performance results which typically, only the end users can illustrate. End users are used to telling the organization what goods and services they want to buy and then often complain about the performance results.
