ISM has announced the formation of two new committees: the Data and Analytics Committee, and a Solutions Provider Council, to provide insight into future product offerings and content.
The emphasis on data and analytics provides a skillset and future-focus that supply managers are looking to cultivate and leverage as the profession and technology continues to evolve.
Marco Romano, PMP, PMI-ACP is the chair of the newly launched Data and Analytics Committee. Romano is the Procurement Data and Analytics Officer at IBM in Global Procurement, Transformation and Technology. The group gathers thought leaders on topics to inform the Institute’s efforts by establishing best practices and supporting content to enable practitioners to achieve maximum value from their data and analytics programs.
ISM also identified the need to incorporate the voice of solution providers within the larger supply management and procurement ecosystem, creating the inaugural Solutions Provider Council. The Council’s chair is Roger Blumberg, Vice President of Corporate and Product Marketing at JAGGAER, a source-to-pay procurement solutions company.
Members of all committees and councils are selected and closely vetted by the global ISM leadership based on their thought leadership, diverse perspectives, and contributions to supply chain and procurement.
