90th Annual International Conference Proceedings - 2005 - San Antonio, TX

The increasing complex fragmented business process, demand for speed, and pressures for cost control forced on us by the changing world situation reinforce the importance of better relationships throughout supply management processes. Similarly, rapid economic development, demand for increases in quality and performance, changing political attitudes, significantly improved communication systems, better transportation systems, trends toward economic integration and increasingly intense competition are tremendous social forces driving change in our supply management processes. These social economic changes will become even more important as we move on into the 21st century. This paper defines the process of networking and is my personal advice on how you can use networking during ISM’s 90th International Supply Management Conference as a great career building opportunity for you.
