|Lombard, Illinois USA (May 1, 2013) — The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) announced the release of its first book in a series of three that focuses on developing talent within the supply chain management (SCM) profession.
Titled Supply Chain Management Talent Development–The Acquire Process, the soft-cover, 36-page publication is available for purchase in the CSCMP Store at http://cscmp.org/products. The cost of the book is $19.95 US for CSCMP members; nonmembers pay $29.95 US.
Recognizing the need that SCM organizations have to enhance their current and future talent pools, CSCMP commissioned a study conducted by researchers at Auburn University and Central Michigan University. This study examined the talent requirements of a number of leading organizations, and the methods they used to identify, develop, and support potential leaders.
Key findings of the research are presented in Supply Chain Management Talent Development–The Acquire Process, which will enable leaders to create high-performance teams as well as retain high-caliber professionals. The three-part publication series will help young and established professionals and hiring and human resource managers improve three main functions of the talent management process: acquire, develop, and advance.
CSCMP’s new book will also explore why it is critical for organizations to establish talent supply chains that are holistically planned and managed in order to acquire, develop, and retain key personnel. This will ensure that teams are equipped and prepared to deliver supply chain excellence and competitive advantage. The research will also underscore the importance of encouraging executives to think more strategically about the human component of SCM, elevating talent issues to the same level of consideration as supply chain processes and technology initiatives.
Since 1963, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) has been the leading worldwide professional association dedicated to education, research, and the advancement of the supply chain management profession. With more than 9,000 members globally, representing business, government, and academia from 62 countries, CSCMP members are the leading practitioners and authorities in the fields of logistics and supply chain management.
