    A1.Training $3.50

    Prep Time:
    25 mins - 30 mins

    Price Per Role:
    $3.50
    Description

    A1.Training is an international, scoreable, two-party, six-issue negotiation with integrative potential. One party is a Romanian energy company that wishes to buy consulting services and worker training from a large US-based technical training and consulting company. The six issues of A1.Training represent all three types of negotiation issues: distributive (zero-sum), compatible (shared), and integrative (tradeable). The twist here is that the payoff matrix is asymmetric—one party has more upside potential from this deal. Thus, the negotiation is perfect as an early exercise to teach basic integrative techniques of finding compatible issues and trading off priorities, and it clearly demonstrates to students the folly of comparing their outcome to their counterpart’s outcome and/or worrying about making sure both parties get an equal outcome. This negotiation is also perfect to use in a negotiations course if New Recruit has already been used in a prior core management course.

    Description

    All in the Family is a two party exercise that illustrates the strengths and weaknesses of four different procedures for distributing a set of ten items between two parties:  1) “Divide and Choose” works off parties’ own priorities and estimates of the other party’s priorities and encourages students to use and understand the maximization procedure, called Solver, in Excel; 2) “Alternating Selection” illustrates first mover advantage effects; 3) “Bargaining” – face to face or electronic – often leads to suboptimal agreements; 4) “FOTE” (full, open, and truthful exchange) illustrates in what ways students can improve their outcome over their bargained outcome. This exercise includes an Excel spreadsheet for students to use to compare and contrast the different procedures, teaching notes, and a second Excel spreadsheet for the instructor to use to post student results.

    Price Per Role:
    $3.50
    Description

    Three-member cross-functional teams negotiate the design of a house, in which a client specifies required features and a limited budget. Each negotiator is assigned a role: the structural expert, the finish expert, or the land expert. Each expert is given confidential information about pricing for various options they can include in the design plan, a confidential profit schedule (indicating how much profit they will make if their option is included in the design), and special bonus information involving integrative tradeoffs. The main task of the group is to determine the set of options, beyond those required by the client, to be included in the design for the house. The exercise involves three dependent measures: perceptions of group members' competitiveness, joint profit (and integrative trade-offs), and equality of resource distribution.

    • Overcoming the threat of a lawsuit and an initial impasse.
    • Recognizing and developing perceived power and refraining from abusing power.
    • De-escalating an emotional situation by managing their own and others’ emotions.
    • Refocusing on building a future relationship.
    • Identifying creative solutions that “expand the pie.”
