What You Will Learn

  • Understand the nature of negotiation. Interests, goals, and cooperation are ambiguous and often do not have “right” answers. Follow a repeatable process to analyze negotiating situations.
  • Gain a broad intellectual understanding of the central concepts in negotiation. These concepts are the building blocks that can be systematically applied to evaluate any negotiation.
  • Improve the ability to analyze the behavior and motives of negotiators in settings that have both competitive and cooperative elements.
  • Develop high-level experience in the negotiation process, including learning to evaluate the costs and benefits of alternative actions and how to manage the negotiating conversation.


    This session provides an interactive experience designed to introduce participants to the process professional buyers rely on for successful negotiation. Common and not-so-common-sense solutions are presented with practical applications. The content is applicable to a broad spectrum of negotiation problems and is relevant to procurement, engineering, marketing professionals. 

    Participants can practice their negotiation skills through simulations and role-playing. 

    Main Points: 

    • Follow a repeatable process with the Negotiation Guide-Roadmap to Success
    • Avoiding the common mistakes
    • Application examples for professional and personal negotiations
