How the ISCM Program Works
The ISCM Program works through its structure as a consortium
of non-competing companies from various industries to:
1. Facilitate best-practice-sharing and exchange among sponsors
at ISCM events.
ISCM sponsors share their own best-practices and develop a
collective wisdom at ISCM events, and the events are designed
by ISCM sponsors so that the content and focus is what the sponsors
are interested in - this does require sponsor involvement in
order to identify themes and plans for events.
Because the sponsors do not include competing companies,
consulting companies or software providers, the exchange among
the sponsors is open, honest and very practical.
2. Create new supply chain knowledge through research projects.
The ISCM Program funds research projects selected by the sponsors
- hence the work is focused on sponsors' interests. As noted
for events, this does require sponsor involvement in order to
identify the issues to research and projects of interest to
Key Learning - We have found that the more involved our
sponsors are in the planning and engagement with us, the more
value the sponsor can derive from the program. This includes being
involved in the event planning, research planning, actively engaging
in research projects (volunteering specific problems to study
within your organization as a study site) and actively engaging
with ISCM resources to find new ways to create value for the sponsors.
The Program exists to serve the consortium so we need companies
interested in actively engaging with us in our work.
