Welcome to Mastering Negotiations: Conducting a Two-Party Negotiation. In this program, you will play the role of an Associate at the fictitious law firm of Blevin, Edmonds, & Victor, or BEV, P.A.

You’ve been assigned to negotiate a non-disclosure agreement between one of the firm's clients and the client’s prospective business partner. There's also the secondary issue of negotiating an evaluation fee that compensates the client fairly for delaying its own product development while the evaluation is in process.

  • Apply problem-solving strategy to negotiate terms desired by a client.
  • Apply a problem-solving strategy to negotiate terms desired by a counterpart.
  • Protect critical information during questioning by a counterpart.
  • Ask questions to gain information about a counterpart's position. 
  • Apply zero-sum bargaining techniques.
