The creation of the ISM-ADR School for Supply Management (ISM-ADR SSM) represents more than 100 years of supply management experience. Combined, ISM and ADR create a powerhouse of supply management education and a revolution in professional training and development.

In-company customized training and development programs provide your organization with high-value instruction at a significant time and cost savings.

The ISM-ADR School is an effective and sustainable solution to your organization's professional development needs.

Target Your Critical Training Needs

The first step of an effective training program is to identify your critical needs. The Development Needs Analysis® (DNA) is a Web-based tool for identifying the current knowledge of your procurement staff, creating a personal development profile for each member of the team. It is delivered online for each professional to take at his or her own pace and time using a unique login and password. This process identifies specific areas where supply managers can improve their skills.

By providing your organization with specific knowledge of your team's strengths and weaknesses, critical training can be applied where you need it most. This targeted approach to professional development is the core of our philosophy. Our goal is to develop a program that is effective in raising your procurement organization's strategic skills to a new level.
