Procurement Transformation

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.
