CIPS launches Corporate Award Program in Italy
The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) is one of the largest professional bodies in the world for procurement and supply management. Alongside SC Italy - an organisation that also supports companies to improve performance in supply chain management - registration to the Corporate Award Program - Advanced Level (CAP - Advanced) has opened with the program commencing in February 2020.
CAP - Advanced is designed to develop procurement and supply chain expertise within an organisation via an accredited training program. Completion of the CAP - Advanced, results in participating organisations becoming a Member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (MCIPS).
“There are great examples of excellent procurement practice in Italy already, but by joining forces with SC Italia we can increase the number of highly-trained and skilled professionals in the region as the challenges in procurement and supply management increase. We welcome interest from all sectors as I believe this programme will benefit those who want a higher level of learning and experience” commented Justin Calver, International Business Development Manager at CIPS.
“With global supply chains getting longer and longer and the urgent need of more Sustainable Procurement practices, we want to encourage any company to augment their standards” added Paolo Zaza, SC Italia Managing Partner and CIPS Country Manager for Italy.
Did you know? Earlier this month CIPS partnered with the UK government to ensure its supply chains are free from modern day slavery.
