The last time that I interviewed Bill Michels was in March 2012 shortly after his company ADR North America was acquired by the Institute for Supply Management™ (ISM), which is the first supply management institute in the world.

At the time, I saw the ADR acquisition by a for profit arm of ISM as a significant move in that it seemed to be a logical evolution or perhaps merging of complimentary competencies, that very likely represents the new consultancy model that will both define and drive procurement practice for the next 10 to 20 years.

So here we are a year later, and with the 98th Annual ISM conference just around the corner, Bill joins me to talk about the acquisition, the present course and the future of ISM.
