1. Michael Lamoureux over at the Sourcing Innovation Blog has posted a two-part review of our online purchasing class Mastering Purchasing Fundamentals. You can check out Michael’s reviews here and here.

2. The phrase “Senior Professional in Supply Management®” had officially earned registered trademark status last month. Man, I never really cared to learn all that I did about the trademark registration process. It is a very expensive process that involves hiring a specialized attorney much unlike what I thought it would be – fill out a form and pay a fee. But trademark registration is a necessary evil. Even once-venerable institutions are today engaged in intellectual property theft and trademark registration can only help an organization protect its IP and spank the infringing parties in legal proceedings.

3. My article “Office Supplies Sourcing Secrets” was republished in the current edition of Government Procurement Magazine.
