  The Institute for Supply Management(TM) (ISM) and global management consulting firm A.T.Kearney have signed a partnership and sponsorship agreement that will lead to the creation of the A.T.Kearney Center for Strategic Supply Leadership (CSSL) @ ISM.

The center will serve as a catalyst for new thought in the field of supply management. It will be dedicated to closing the gap between the growing expectations of senior management and the results delivered by their organizations' supply partners. The center will work to identify breakthroughs in purchasing and supply at the highest levels and translate them into robust multi-level educational programs that shape an organizations' capabilities and business performance.

Through the sponsorship of A.T. Kearney, the center will gain access to the insight of a global leader in strategic sourcing. Much of the center's curriculum will be developed in conjunction with sourcing experts from A.T. Kearney and designed for senior supply management executives.

“For the last 10 years, our recurring research on supply management issues has pointed to the evolving strategic role of the supply management executive,” said Tom Slaight, A.T. Kearney vice president. “Companies viewed as leaders in supply management are using these capabilities to outperform their competitors. We're delighted to be joining with ISM to help shape the development of tomorrow's supply management leaders.”

The center's curriculum offerings will be researched and developed during the first quarter of 2004, with the first course planned for June 2004. The center will be governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of senior leaders from Fortune 500 companies. The members of this board will be announced in early 2004.
