[Not offered in 2022]

Credit points: 3
Year: 2022
Student Contribution Band: Band 4
Administered by: College of Business, Law & Governance

This subject provides an introduction to contemporary theories of negotiation both in Australia and overseas. The subject builds a sound understanding of the various negotiation models available with a particular focus on interest-based negotiation. The subject explores the factors at play in negotiation, how to recognise them and how to deal with them. The overall focus is on the major elements and stages of the negotiation processes and levels and forms of intervention. Detailed attention is paid to recognition of negotiation styles, reactions and interventions with the intent of maximising the benefits to be derived through co-operative bargaining as distinct from positional bargaining.
