In the field of Purchasing and Supply Management PMI works in cooperation with the highly influential and respected association Institute for Supply Management (ISM).

ISM was founded in 1915 by leading purchasing experts. With over 40.000 members in more than 90 countries ISM is one of the biggest international networks for experts in Purchasing and Supply Management. In addition to the yearly ISM conference many local events take place to ensure the regular opportunity of networking.

ISM is respected worldwide for profound and innovative research activities. In the monthly „ISM Report on Business®“ the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) also known as ISM Manufacturing Index is published. It is seen as an indicator for economic development in the USA.

So far the ISM training content has been integrated in some European university programs.  PMI is the first training provider offering ISM worldwide recognized training content and certification in Europe.

At present PMI is offering ISM as selfstudy. In 2014 the PMI will provide the "Certified Professional in Supply Management" CPSM as a series of 3 public seminars. Participants can not only profit from the profound ISM training program but also through interaction and networking within the group and with world class trainers.
