It (Section 3-A-9) has three components first is assessment and situational analysis, second is the compliance metrics on supply management policies and procedures and the third subtopic is applying Peter Senge's learning organization ideas to the supply management organization. In this section, you are generally asking what is the articulated policy of the supply management department. Examples could be that a requisition from an user must be acknowledged within 24 hours and you may need to let the user department know the estimated delivery within 7 days. The compliance metrics part of this section is about confirming that compliance checks on procedures and policies are in place. For example, the supply management department in the above example might report that in the last quarter they did provide an action report to the requisitioning user at 24 hour acknowledgment 90% of the time. However, the 7 day delivery plan rule could happen in 70% of the cases as these were repeat buys and did not require RFP's etc.
The third sub-section is about the application of Peter Senge's learning organization ideas to supply management. Here is a nice summary of Peter Senge's ideas. Think about how they apply to the supply management function in your organization. Take systems thinking- think if the supply management thinking in your organization considers your organization as a system. For example, there may be an initiative for "going green" advocated by your CEO. This means that every contract that comes up for renewal should at least consider the possibility of more environmentally freindly products.
Section 3-A-9 is not a bridge exam topic or it seems to be a topic from the general CPM syllabus. In other words Bridge Exam takers don't need to cover this topic.
