Project Management: 04. Negotiating

Project Management: 04. Negotiating

Updated Apr 29, 2020

Negotiating is an important part of being a project manager. Anytime someone reaches an agreement, a change, a commitment, an action, a result, or a price, negotiation is taking place. There will be projects when you need to use negotiation skills frequently, and sometimes there will be projects where you don't negotiate at all. It all will depend on the project and every project will be different. A successful project management negotiation is a win-win situation, so that's what we'll be focusing on in this program. We'll discuss preparation, making offers, deadlocks, concessions, agreement documents, and things that you'll want to avoid when negotiating.
