Well, we decided that perhaps we needed to complement our elaborate ravings with something a bit simpler.  So, here is a list of the benefits of the SPSM Certification in brief bullet points!

Employers who have enrolled their procurement teams in the SPSM Certification Program have reported these benefits:

  • Greater cost savings
  • Better overall workplace performance
  • Enhanced credibility with management and internal customers
  • Support for best practice implementation and change management
  • Greater team unity
  • A stimulated and highly-skilled team
  • The enjoyment of performing more strategically
  • Improved ability for all team members to perform more independently

Procurement professionals who themselves have earned the SPSM Certification have reported these benefits:

  • Pay increases
  • More respect in the workplace and from suppliers
  • Promotions
  • Being more qualified for better procurement jobs
  • Better workplace performance that leads to better performance reviews

Simple enough?
