The Executive’s Guide To The SPSM® Certification

A resource for improvement-minded procurement leaders

Are you struggling to get your procurement department where you want it to be?  If you’re like most procurement leaders, you have a team of buyers that isn’t quite hitting their performance metrics.  Your procurement department lacks credibility with stakeholders and management.  And you feel that the capabilities of your buyers, purchasing agents, procurement specialists, sourcing analysts, and/or managers vary tremendously from person to person.

The good news is that procurement departments don’t have to be that way. Certain procurement leaders have found a program that enabled them to hit their numbers.  A program that helped them earn unprecedented levels of credibility.  A program that elevated the capabilities of their entire teams:  from buyers to CPO’s.  That program is the SPSM® Certification Program!

Paul Sas, who selected the SPSM as his choice for a procurement professional and buyer certification program

“I was looking for a program that would supplement [my buyers’] hospital training and introduce them to a broader spectrum of purchasing responsibilities than they would get just in healthcare…I really push being independent thinkers and what Next Level does best is improve their ability to be self-directed.”

Paul Sas – District Director of Supply Chain Services – PalomarPomerado Health

from Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine.
