Think about a situation in your life or work in which you need to choose a negotiation strategy.  First answer the questions below regarding the “key elements” of the situation, i.e., time, information, and power, and then answer the strategy questions which can help you select a preferred overall strategy to use as you start negotiating.
    • Is there a deadline that will affect the timing of your bargaining?
    • What is your BATNA and demonstrate how it is calculated?  What is your best estimate of the other party’s BATNA?  Is your BATNA your starting or walk-away point?
    • What other information do you need to collect before you start the negotiation?
    • Is the power between the two sides balanced or who appears to initially have the advantage?
    • If several economic issues are involved, could you develop a MESO or Economic Matrix of alternatives to offer to the other side?
