Advanced Purchasing Negotiation

A leading company is in the process of upgrading its professional negotiation capabilities for procurement professionals. It is understood that to deal with savvy suppliers in the VUCAmarket and complex communications with all the stakeholders, the procurement are to be equipped with professional negotiation skills.

VUCA – this acronym stands for ‘Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity’, and is applied in general conditions and situations and is particularly suitable for the Chinese marketing environment.

“Advanced Negotiations” is a highly interactive training program that directs participants to build professional competency in negotiation preparations, negotiation process, identifying and applying personal negotiation styles and tactics to enhance their negotiation effectiveness.

With the focus on professional way of working before and during negotiations, we encourage participants to walk away from “bargaining” centered negotiation. At the sametime, the program also reminds participants to differentiate between negotiation scenarios and apply the right behavior and tactics to balance results and relationship.
