The Institute also provided consultancy services in the Purchasing and Supply Chain Management field to turn around six organizations affected by poor management of the Purchasing and Supply Chain Management function. Our experience in the private and public sectors have shown that crisis preventive and management efforts have to be put in place in the entire organizations in good time and engage the service of experts in the field.

The International Trade Centre (ITC), in August 2006, launched a new programme in Sri Lanka to promote the export of services, and to provide associations, chambers and other trade support institutions a unique opportunity to deliver new programmes / services to their members.
Institute of Supply and Materials Management (ISMM) has taken a keen interest in supporting this worthy exercise of ITC and wish to propagate the lucrative concept to the ISMM Members and the public at large, thereby add value to the national economy. In this process ISMM has scheduled to launch the following activities under the "Successful Services Exporting (SSE)".
