Negotiation for Procurement Professionals : A Proven Approach That Puts the Buyer in Control (Paperback)
About this item
Highly effective negotiation skills are an essential element of a purchasing professional’s toolkit. Negotiation for Procurement Professionals shifts the emphasis away from relying on personality to a more structured approach that enables anyone to negotiate effectively, even when up against a formidable opponent. This allows the purchasing professional or team to evaluate the supplier in advance, assess the sales team, and tailor their negotiation strategy depending on cultural differences, personality traits, and game theory. It creates a strong framework for discussion in advance of the meeting, allowing the negotiator to plan their agenda, objectives, and tactics. This updated second edition contains a new section on multi-party negotiation, new information on negotiating in the public sector, and more "negotiation winning ways" and negotiation tactics.
