Called the Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM), the nonprofit aims to help organizations innovate and transform their business processes.
“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,” said APICS CEO Abe Eshkenazi.
Supply chain has become a significant and driving force in the success of businesses around the world. As a new organization, ASCM will enable corporations to more effectively tap into their supply chains and deliver strategic value.
“With ASCM, we recognized an exciting opportunity with this new association to expand our reach and elevate our position even further,” Eshkenazi continued. “Something special is happening in supply chain.”
ASCM will continue to provide the industry-leading APICS certifications and trainings professionals and organizations have come to trust. In addition, ASCM will deliver new, innovative products and services, including:
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, scalability and competitive advantage
the ASCM Supply Chain Learning Center with on-demand resources and education —
and more to come.
“As supply chain practices rapidly evolve, organizations need accessible tools and resources from an unbiased partner. ASCM is ready to make a powerful impact on the industry, corporations and their workforces,” Eshkenazi added.
More information about ASCM will be rolled out over the coming months, with the full launch expected in early 2019.
