If your organization’s procurement function is in the business of simply buying reactively, it’s missing a crucial opportunity. Developing a coordinated, strategic approach to procurement gets better value from your supply base, puts you in control and makes a solid contribution to delivering competitive advantage.
Our procurement transformation program delivers a tailor-made blend of Positive’s programs, processes and resources. Our four stages – Diagnostic, Roadmap, Delivery, Results – provide a fully managed journey through the entire process. This creates a profound and lasting transformation in the way your organization does procurement.
Securing growth by unlocking your procurement potential
Our approach is driven by a resource base that combines top procurement expertise and exceptional learning resources. Through our programs and bespoke packages, we draw on a comprehensive mix of hands-on training and advanced learning tools – using a system that’s proven to enhance the procurement capability of global businesses.

“Red Sheet has changed how we negotiate in Oerlikon and has become a standard and required approach for all practitioners negotiating important agreements. We have realized a clear and quantifiable uplift in negotiation capability across the global team which has enabled us to realise greater results from our negotiations. The most striking change is how our teams now negotiate. Whereas before the supplier always seemed to have the upper hand, now we have the upper hand – suppliers just don’t know what to do or where we are heading next – it puts us in control of the process and individuals”.
Peter Iff, Head of Purchasing Excellence – Oerlikon
“The online training provided by Positive Purchasing exceeded my expectations. The level of engagement of my team throughout the training was very high due to the slick presentation and entertaining breakout sessions. The skilled staff kept the pace and material fresh, and the multiple sessions and breaks allowed my team to learn and also keep up with their ‘day job’. The presentation quality set a high standard and provided a benchmark for the virtual future in our organization”.
