IACCM Launch Accredited Qualification in Supplier Relationship Management (SRM)

Pioneering program will equip SRM practitioners with the core skills and knowledge they need to develop successful, collaborative customer-supplier relations

We are delighted to announce the launch of the IACCM SRM program. The first learning group will start at the end of January 2012, and we are taking pre-registrations (contact pmallory@iaccm.com for further details and to reserve your place).

Be one of the first to achieve the world's only internationally recognised and accredited qualification in supplier relationship management (SRM).

The pioneering program is designed to equip practitioners with the skills and knowledge they need to implement SRM practices effectively within their organisations. Completion of the program will lead to individual certification and a “licence to practise SRM”.

SRM is emerging as both an important business activity and a professional discipline within major organisations around the world. Research evidence suggests that SRM can deliver significant tangible benefits in addition to those achieved through world-class strategic sourcing, negotiation, and contract and performance management.

You will join a group of practitioners as they work through the learning program, in a virtual environment of e-learning modules enhanced by message board interactions across the group and webcasts to enhance the learning materials and provide a forum for interactive discussion of best practices. The skills assessment tool will enable you to do a gap analysis on your current level of skill and capability, enabling focus on personal learning goals for greatest development impact.

This comprehensive training program recognises that relationship management requires a blend of technical capabilities – for example, in process and organisational design, and structuring of appropriate contracts and future-facing measurement systems – and key behavioural competencies such as communication, influencing and trust building.

Participants on this e-learning programme, will learn how to:

  • Prepare convincing SRM business cases
  • Design an effective governance structure
  • Create and implement a communications plan
  • Engage key stakeholders and supplier executives
  • Develop metrics that drive successful behaviours
  • Encourage positive approaches to change
  • Collaborate with strategic partners
  • Devise appropriate contractual arrangements
  • Track and report SRM benefits
  • Resolve conflicts and issues collaboratively

The SRM Program has the following priced elements, all prices are quoted in US dollars:
