Institute for Supply Management
Supply management is a social profession, where cross-functional interaction and teambased problem solving are the norm. We look to our coworkers and supply partners for information in their areas of expertise, and reach out to colleagues in the industry for advice. Facilitating this communication is technology, evolving from the telephone, to email and now to social media. What social media and networks accomplish over other forms of communication technology is connecting vast users across a global landscape.
