Take a look at how certification helped one of our clients shift from tactical to strategic to realize significant results.
The results were so dramatic, the company now requires all executives in training to spend at least two years learning and applying supply chain management…
Dear Supply Leader,
I have been working on transforming our sourcing organization from a tactical reactionary purchasing group to a proactive Supply Management team and finally to a highly effective visionary Strategic Sourcing Team. As we solidified our team in Strategic Sourcing, I found myself looking for training that would establish a common foundation of sourcing knowledge.
After researching several opportunities, we decided to pursue the ISM CPSM certification. After looking at many training methods we chose Jack Quinn Solutions’ CPSM Boot camp. The results have been amazing, out of 7 Sourcing Managers, all but one achieved ISM certification.
Rockline Industries is a privately held company and thus doesn’t communicate financial size and results. But I can tell you that we have six manufacturing operations located through the USA, Asia, and Europe.
The results from attending the Boot camp and being certified have been outstanding. We’ve implemented elaborate commodity strategy plans and executed against them. This has resulted in significantly exceeding our KPIs and Strategic Objectives. The most impactful areas have been cost reductions, RM quality improvements, deliberate risk mitigation plans and a long-term vision.
Our top leadership have recognized it as well, and as a result, our Executive Training Program (ETP) now requires candidates to work in Strategic Sourcing as part of the training. These high-potential individuals are required to spend 2 yrs in Sourcing working to accomplish three things: 1) manage a commodity, 2) lead a significant sourcing project (to the level of a paradigm shift), and 3) achieve CPSM certification. Now we know our next generation of Executives at Rockline will always consider Sourcing as part of their major decisions.
Thank-you Jack Quinn Solutions for the enormous success with our team achieving CPSM certification using the Boot Camp framework and I know we would not have had that without your help.
