If you’ve been to our site, you know that we like to feature our students who are willing to share their success. And you know that we also like to showcase students from around the world because of the fact that the SPSM Certification is globally recognized.

Today, we added a new testimonial from someone whose accomplishments deserve to be recognized. It is featured on our Web page for the class “14 Purchasing Best Practices,” but I’ll also post it here.

Image of recent SPSM Certification earner Patrick Githendu“After signing up for the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program, we formed a commodity team following the instructions in 14 Purchasing Best Practices. This commodity team has now ensured that our procurement and supply management plan for Anti-Retroviral and Anti-Malarial Medicines produces savings as well as quality medicines. We have been able to source for products internationally at much reduced prices as compared to earlier purchases. For example, we recently sourced 550,000 USD worth of Anti-Malarials against a forecast of 750,000 USD for that same quantity where the forecast was based on previous pricing. These results have made it easy to justify the investment in my education with Next Level Purchasing.”
