Collaborative or Principled Negotiation for Conflict Resolution

Expectations and Introduction:

The intent of this project is to apply the theoretical and general aspects, to real-life and practical cases.

Conflict is an integral part of our lives, and we encounter it in every aspect of our personal and professional activities.
Surely, you have observed (or even participated in) some form of conflict at your workplace, be it a simple but heated interpersonal matter, or a full-scale organizational dispute.

The project will always have three short parts you will need to address in EACH module, as described below:

Focus should be put on sections II + III.

You can choose on describing and analyzing a conflict widening your scope and describing different incidents.

Part I - Background and Settings:

The Organization - Without revealing proprietary information, describe the organization of your choice (It should be one that you are familiar with, so preferably it would be easier, if it would be your own).

The Conflict - Describe the workplace conflict issue you have chosen to write about.

o What is the underlying problem or difference?

o Who are the parties or sides in this conflict?

Choose a Side - Choose one of the parties or sides in the conflict and let me know of your choice.

Part II - How was it Negotiated?

Describe "your chosen" side's decisions and/or behaviors and/or actions to the following:

o PN - Was the Principled Negotiation (PN) method, used in your case? If so, how? If not, could it have been implemented? how would it have benefited the two sides?
o Principles - How were the four principles of PN, carried out? If PN was not used, could it have been beneficial?
o BATNA - What was your side's BATNA? Was there a case where it was "activated"? If No BATNA was prepared, discuss this in Part III.

Part III - What Would You Have Done?:

Assuming you are the principal representative for your "chosen side":

o What would YOU have done in this case to solve the issue?
o What decisions would YOU have taken?
