Course Description

Micro-credential - Negotiating for Value

This micro-credential is for participants who are managing and leading organisations including chief executives, senior managers, sales executives, buyers and independent business people. It is also suitable for entrepreneurs, legal practitioners, and other professional service firm executives.

It is designed to empower candidates to employ tried and tested negotiation strategies to create value through mutually beneficial deals. A well-designed negotiation strategy informs how value-maximising agreements should be approached.

This course is designed to meet the requirements of modern business where it is accepted that identifiable determinants lead to successful negotiation. Special attention is given to strategic, cultural, and behavioural variables for mutually beneficial, non-manipulative and sustainable deal-making.

During this course, participants are immersed in interactive presentations, which focus on establishing the corner posts of principled, integrative and value-maximizing negotiation. Throughout the course, due attention is devoted to strategic, behavioural and cultural variables.

The course has a strong emphasis on crafting mutually beneficial, nonmanipulative and sustainable deals that are premised on universal principles of human behaviour, cross-cultural imperatives, creativity, and innovation.

On successful completion of this micro-credential, learners will be able to:

  • Learning from an experienced mentor who has taught and consulted public and private sector organisations around the world.
  • Get insights into human behaviour, cross-cultural imperatives, creativity, and innovation.
  • Work, plan and negotiate together to successfully create bi-lateral and multi-lateral agreements.
  • Apply the core determinants that underpin principled, value-maximizing negotiation.
  • Demonstrate a systematic and critically evaluative understanding of the positions undertaken by participants during the different stages of negotiation.
  • Employ negotiation as an opportunity for parties to work together to jointly develop creative and innovative solutions.
  • Determine and differentiate destructive from the constructive deployment of power in the pursuit of principled, value-enhancing negotiation.
