Topic: Cross Culture Negotiation Skills for International Manger



The business world is changing rapidly; competition is fiercer than ever before. The competitive nature of business globally requires negotiators to be more familiar with new negotiating techniques and strategies. In the area of international negotiation, intercultural savvy becomes a real necessity. In fact, negotiation expertise and intercultural savoir-faire are more important than the magnitude or reputation of a corporation. Negotiating international transactions is difficult and can easily fail. The difference between failure and success in international business negotiations resides in the ability and knowledge of the persons at the negotiating table. Even though culture is an important factor in global deals, it is not the only one. A true negotiator is someone who can identify the various factors he/she encounters, evaluate them, and determine the course of action that must be taken.
