ISPE's 2016-2017 International Board of Directors Chair

Looking to the year ahead, I see both opportunities and challenges for ISPE. It is clear to me that our 2016-2019 strategic plan entitled “Embracing the Challenge” remains directionally correct and we will continue to work toward that plan. The challenges we face relate to the complexity and competitiveness of our environment. If we embrace these challenges head on and become progressive in our approach to them, we as a Society will benefit substantially.  Read more from Arnold in the monthly blog post Chairman's Chatter.
