November saw us award the first SPSM® Certifications in Rwanda and the Isle of Man/British Isles.

Having cracked the 40 country plateau for SPSM’s awarded (and the 80 country plateau where purchasers are enrolled in the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program), there really isn’t another purchasing and supply management certification that can come close in terms of global recognition.

But it isn’t just global recognition that distinguishes the SPSM®. In the next day or so, I’ll be posting a resource that will help you assess the comprehensive nature of the content.
