The Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) has become the "Gateway to the POM World".
The long term goal and vision for POMS is that it should become the "home" organization for all POM professionals and be recognized as such by other professional organizations, accreditation bodies, university administrators, business and industry leaders, and our own colleagues in business schools. POMS must become the repository of fundamental POM information and the most authoritative source of developments in the POM field.
To achieve this goal, POMS facilitates communication among professors and POM professionals from all over the globe. POMS provides the following multi-dimensional links which create a "virtual department" and provide avenues for sharing ideas that impact teaching, research and practice.
- electronic links which include the POMS website (www.poms.org) and e-mail to and from the POMS home office (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- the printed word which includes Production and Operations Management, an increasingly influential quarterly journal solely devoted to the POM field, and POMS Chronicle, the society's newsletter
- face-to-face contact at POMS-sponsored conferences both in the United States and in other countries with an opportunity to network with members of POM community from all over the world.
