The ability to negotiate is an important element of success for every leader, manager, supervisor, project manager, and employee as they deal with cus- tomers, suppliers, and one another. Negotiation is often the key to settling disputes, resolving conflict, allocating scarce resources, and making tough de- cisions. And in today’s workplace, where employee empowerment and team- based work are increasingly important, there are many more occasions in which informal negotiations are necessary in order to get things done.

Best Practice Workplace Negotiations offers a systematic approach to devel- oping negotiating skills. It serves as an introduction to current best practices in negotiation that can be applied across a broad range of business situations. This up-to-the-minute course covers win-win vs. win-lose negotiations; the BATNA concept (best alternative to a negotiated agreement-what every negotiator should have in mind before entering into any negotiation); walk-away price, or reserve point; negotiation as a logical set of process steps-preparation, initial moves, application of tactics, and post-deal evaluation; and the power of persuasive communication in negotiations.

Throughout the course, cases, assessments, exercises, Think About It sections, and Negotiating Tips offer students opportunities for practice, feedback, and practical application.
