    The CPSCM™ - Join the Top 1%

    Structured learning, curated community & orbit changing outcomes – in one membership.

    With a clear mission to give our members the tools and skills to elevate their capabilities, results, and career track in purchasing and supply chain management. CPSCM™ ultimate goal at the group level is for member companies to enable their purchasing departments to be and be recognized as value added centers of profit. 

    The ultimate goal at the individual level is to give CPSCM™ members the skills, knowledge, and capabilities to generate world class results not using the legacy model of memorizing the A-Z of procurement, but in driving upstream design for TCO, surgically removing costs from the supply chain, deftly tackling unfavorable bargaining power imbalances, driving investigative negotiations and transforming all of procurement to be singularly focused on the acquisition of performance results. 

    All CPSCM™ transformational models and case-studies are built by studying the global top 1% Organizations. 

    The approach is to understand not just what worked, but the context on why it worked, as well as dissecting critical failures and understanding root cause and key corrective strategies. There are a multitude of macro factors to why companies do – and the miss the opportunity to do – certain things, and we try to understand the why rather than the how.  Innovation, disruption, and transformation are fundamental pillars of the CPSCM™ case study framework.  

    There are absolutely zero manufactured cases in the CPSCM™ curriculum – all real world circumstances, all real world strategies, all real world successes and failures and all real world learnings.   


    Intro Video

    As a thirty year Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Veteran, most recently as Sr. VP of Supply Chain at Google, I can say that the CPSCM certification is The cream of the crop.

    Tim Shiple – Former Senior Vice President of Supply Chain at  

    Actionable Learning

    Shift the paradigm, from moving costs along the supply chain to taking them out of the supply chain. 

    Rearchitect the full procurement lifecycle to be singularly focused on the acquisition of PERFORMANCE RESULTS (instead of goods & services). 

    Drive upstream design for TCO with internal end users and key supply chain partners – taking costs out of the purchase before negotiations ensue. 

    Leverage investigative and learning negotiation models to enable the joint creation of value. 

    Solicit and harness supplier innovation for improved short- and longer-term performance and TCO results. 

    Secure procurement a seat at-the-table with internal business units to design anddrive organizational performance metrics and negotiation strategies focused on organizational success 

    ~ Omid Ghamami 

    Myth – Splitting the pie down the middle is a good compromise
    Reality – Rookie negotiators see only one pie and that’s the price pie
    Myth – Getting the upper hand and painting the supplier Into a corner gets results
    Reality –Suppliers will be bitter and you’ll spend more money

    Membership built for ambitious purchasing & supply chain leaders

    What if you could learn skills that would allow you to double your cost savings, slash negotiation cycle time, almost eliminate supplier excursions (because the focus shifts from fire fighting to prevention), and have 4 hours a day completely free on your calendar to focus on more strategic initiatives at your pace? What is it worth for you to gain the confidence, the skills, and the capabilities to outcompete every person in your Industry, and have the capability to double your revenue in just a few years? The architects of these powerful materials did just that with their careers, and now they are giving YOU these Insider Power Secrets of the Masters.

    Now if you insist on doing what you’ve always been doing, stop for a moment and ask yourself where that has gotten you so far. Are you at the position level you want or deserve? Have you mastered procurement to the point that negotiations are exciting and rewarding? Do your peers seek you out and ask you how you keep getting incredible results? Have you reached a level of prestige in your company that you feel good about? Is purchasing the lucrative career for you that it can and should be? Are you admired by your friends and family as being highly successful?

    Here’s what you are likely looking forward to in your career in procurement if you keep doing what you always have been doing: You will be part of the 95% in procurement who start and stay in the lower ranks and live mostly in frustration because they can’t stop spinning their wheels.

    Your Career And Income Trajectory Will Catapult

    You’re going to learn the proprietary training from whom has been called upon to speak to the 50 Chief Purchasing Officers of the United States (with a collective $3.2 Trillion US budget!) and Harvard University’s world renowned Supply Chain Management program.

    Complacency is the biggest threat to your career. Invest in your career now… or you can always keep doing what you’ve always been doing

    • Lack of sufficient preparation for high stakes negotiations.
    • Rogue customers that do what they want and get away with it by calling procurement a “road block”.
    • Tough contracts and slow legal departments. Suppliers that can’t perform right to save their life.
    • Thankless managers who burden you with administrative responsibilities and wonder why you don’t get strategic results. Internal Auditors that have to find something to report.
    • 3% raises year after year.
    • Hearing everyone talk about supply chain management but having no clue what to do about it.
    • 80% or more of every day spent on unplanned activities (“fire fighting”) that don’t count as accomplishments on your status report or your performance review.
    • No budget for training and lack of internal training resources.


    Have you experienced everything above? Is this you? Is this what you signed up for in Supply Chain? Is this how you want to spend your career?


    You will learn the powerful skills needed to:

We have frequent requirements in our Strategic Sourcing function and CPSCM™ will add and has added great value.

Since 1995, he has taught thousands of hours of courses, workshops, and seminars in 21 different countries on topics related to the entire spectrum of purchasing, supply chain management, purchasing contract law, negotiations, and supplier management.

      End user and engineering teams – because the program will focus on how to take cost out of the equation (in the product or service design itself) before the team ever go out to bid – which requires end user and engineering involvement. The program will examine the roles/responsibilities on the negotiation on team which they will be a part of. It will cover how to engage with these teams early to get better purchasing results, and finally walk the participant through how to redefine what is being purchased in terms of desired performance results which typically, only the end users can illustrate. End users are used to telling the organization what goods and services they want to buy and then often complain about the performance results.
