Successful Price / Contract Negotiations

Negotiation skills are a strategic factor for success. With the right tool set, you will achieve better results and save your margins by carrying out successful price and contract negotiations.

The workshop uses a proven, very interactive workshop concept with short theoretical inputs and real-life examples and useful practical tools. To get as real as possible, we will go through a series of exercises and role-plays using your own case examples.

Content: This is what we cover

  • Foundation of negotiations (challenges for negotiators, about procurement, their typical approaches etc.)
  • The Four Negotiation Principles (based on the Harvard Principle) and how to use them in real negotiation situations
  • Special situation ‘Price Negotiation’: What’s different to ‘standard’ negotiations and how to find out whether the buyer is bluffing or not
  • 10 Psychological Tools for Successful Negotiations
  • How to effectively prepare (using the CSK negotiation matrix)
