Description

Negotiation is an invaluable skill for any project manager. Not only do you negotiate agreements with vendors and contractors, but you must effectively negotiate with stakeholders, customers and team members throughout the life of a project. This highly interactive experience covers the dynamics, processes and techniques of internal and external negotiation situations faced by project managers. Short on lecture and long on practice, this course provides participants the opportunity to experience one-on-one negotiations. You will learn how to analyze your own and the other party`s negotiation style, diffuse conflict and turn it into an advantage, and negotiate more effectively. You will also learn how to negotiate for efficient cost and schedule performance and achieve successful results on time. Participants will receive coaching and feedback from the instructor and the other participants.
