One of the hardest questions to answer is “What topics does the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program cover?”

Well…a lot!

So rather than spout off the topics that most individuals are interested in – spend analysis, stratetic sourcing, managing supply risk, eProcurement and eSourcing, cost savings reporting, yada, yada, yada – we’ve developed a tool that can help purchasing professionals and procurement executives identify whether or not the topics they are most interested in are included. This tool is called the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program Index.

This index lists the topics that are covered in the six purchasing classes that comprise the program. Now, this is new, so it’s not perfect nor all inclusive. But it is a decent starting point for determining which classes cover which topics. And it demonstrates the breadth of topics that are covered.
