On Sept. 30, the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) was formally announced. ASCM will serve as a global leader in supply chain organizational transformation, innovation and leadership. The organization is all-encompassing and will propel the industry forward and transform how organizations do business.
“ASCM is the leader for end-to-end supply chain management, bringing corporations and professionals the latest ideas and proven best practices to help transform supply chains. We want to empower both the people who elevate supply chains and the companies who utilize them,” says APICS CEO Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE. “With ASCM, we recognized an exciting opportunity with this new association to expand our reach and elevate our position even further. Something special is happening in supply chain.”
ASCM will enable corporations to effectively tap into their supply chains and deliver strategic value and will continue to provide APICS certifications and training professionals and organizations.
In addition, ASCM will deliver new innovative products and services such as: learning and development through a powerful global network of alliances and thought leadership collaborations, the first comprehensive corporate designation that enables organizations to assess their supply chains in key areas for maximum sustainability, a dedicated learning center with on-demand resources and more.
ASCM is expected to fully launch in early 2019.
