Past, Present, and Future of Supply Management

Dr. Russell Morey has spent over 45 years in supply management/purchasing as a business
and academic professional. He has often questioned those analysts and authorities that
speak of “when we return to normal”.  Dr. Morey’s philosophy is that we never return to the
way it used to be after major changes in our domestic and global economy. His presentation
identifies a few of the past issues that has elevated purchasing/supply management to the
current level and provided a foundation for viewing issues and making responsible decisions
for the present and future.  He will also identify a few of the challenges and issues we need
to address in the future if our profession and organizations are to remain competitive.
