Willow Grove, PA (January 9, 2018) – Leading Strategic Sourcing Services provider, Source One Management Services announces its partnership with the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) to produce the premier supply chain event of the year: ISM2018. With a commitment of driving innovation in supply management and promoting procurement’s value, Source One proudly supports the ISM Annual Conference as Diamond Sponsors. The three-day supply chain and procurement event, held from May 6-9 in Nashville, Tennessee, promises to unite supply management leaders from around the globe to trade insights for tackling today’s procurement challenges.

The premier supply management conference once again features an impactful itinerary of panel discussions and learning sessions exploring methods for leveraging Procurement to produce savings, engage stakeholders, and drive change across organizations. Supply chain professionals ranging from upstarts to C-level executives will also enjoy access to specialized career development and team building workshops. In addition to procurement leaders, ISM2018 welcomes keynote speakers: Former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, former Director of the NSA, Gen. Keith Alexander, founder of The Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, and former Amazon executive, John Rossman.

Reinforcing ISM’s mission of encouraging education of supply management professionals across the country, Source One looks forward to lending their procurement insights and strategic sourcing best practices as ISM2018 exhibitors and speakers. Over the years, Source One’s Procurement experts have led conversations advocating for Procurement’s evolution and shared insights on procurement transformation,  supply chain talent management, and procurement data analytics. Among the loaded ISM2018 agenda, Source One’s procurement consultants will be presenting sessions on enhancing procurement’s internal image and equipping procurement professionals with the right skilsets to advance supply management operations.

“Source One’s Procurement consultants wait all year for this supply management conference,” writes William Dorn, VP of Operations at Source One. “Collaborating with ISM has repeatedly enabled us to network and share best practices with other Strategic Sourcing and Supply Management leaders.  Each year, we look forward to bringing our experience and insights to the supply management conference’s agenda and forming long-lasting relationships with practitioners to support their procurement goals following the event. We always return from the conference with a renewed enthusiasm for promoting impactful Procurement .”

Source One will also serve as the exclusive sponsor for ExecIn.  A private element of ISM2018, the event is exclusively for non-consulting supply leaders representing companies with annual revenues of $1.2 Billion or more. The executives-only sub-conference provides private sessions with keynote speakers and additional networking opportunities for executive-level supply chain professionals.

Source One Management Services joins an extensive list of exhibitors and guest presenters at ISM2018.  They look forward to sharing their insights and networking with other Strategic Sourcing leaders once again.  Additionally, they encourage all attendees to stop by booth #729 to learn more about their methods for optimizing Procurement’s performance.
