Leveraging the ISM Report On Business® and Semiannual Economic Forecast

The ISM Report On Business® makes the news each month with its Manufacturing and Services PMI® Indexes. The Report On Business® has been a reliable indicator of economic conditions for more than 80 years. Twice each year, in the spring and in the fall, the Report On Business® issues its Semiannual Economic Forecast. This year the Spring 2022 Semiannual Economic Forecast was issued at ISM World 2022 annual conference in May.

This interactive presentation will provide background on and expert analysis of the Spring 2022 Semiannual Economic Forecast by the Chairs of the Business Survey Committees for both the Manufacturing PMI® and the Services PMI®. The presentation will also discuss how best to leverage the data from a procurement leader's standpoint, as well as how to use it within your team to improve strategic decision-making.
