Final Project for Negotiating Globally 2020 

Complete 1 of the following 4 projects:

Project 1: Culture and Negotiation

This project prepares you and your company/organization for intercultural opportunities and challenges in terms of what may be expected when people from two different cultures negotiate (e.g., dignity and face cultures or dignity and honor cultures). You may either create your own company or use a ‘real life’ company as a case study. The project must contain two parts and be 12-15 pages long.

 

The two parts the project should contain are:

 

Part 1 (9-11 pages): An analysis (comparison/contrast) of two different cultures and their respective negotiation strategies. The project must address the following challenges:

  • An analysis/discussion of how negotiators from two different cultures (e.g., dignity and face) prototypically tend to be similar and different from each other when they negotiate. Your analysis may include considerations of both within and between culture negotiations.
  • An analysis/discussion of the Question and Answer (Q&A) negotiation strategy with the Substantiation and Offers (S&O) negotiation strategy. In your response, you must include an assessment of strengths and weaknesses of each strategy based on scientific findings from established negotiation research. An analysis/discussion of how these two cultures tend to resolve disputes. I.e., what are some of the major challenges when these cultures resolve disputes cross-culturally?

 

Other items that may be considered:

 

  • An analysis/discussion of what some of the major challenges are between intracultural negotiations (i.e. within culture negotiations) and negotiations based on foreign direct investments (FDI).

 

Part 2 (4-6 pages): A Global Negotiation Portfolio

 

This part of the project involves an analysis of your own strengths and weaknesses as a global negotiator. This section should include the following: - An analysis of own personal strengths and weaknesses when negotiating with a foreign culture (e.g., face or honor cultures). Make references to the cases negotiated during the semester and apply Salacuse or Brett or any other text you find appropriate.

  • An analysis of own personal strengths and weaknesses when encountering strategic misalignment – i.e. Q&A and S&O. Make references to the cases negotiated during the semester and apply Salacuse or Brett or any other text you find appropriate.

 

It is of the utmost importance that relevant literature from the course syllabus is applied to your analyses to avoid unsubstantiated claims etc.

 

Project 2: Market Penetration

This project prepares you and your company/organization for market penetration at the level of the environmental context (see Lewicki et al). You may either create your own company or use a ‘real life’ company as a case study, and the idea is to prepare a forthcoming negotiation. The project must contain two parts and be 12-15 pages long.

 

The two parts the project should contain are:

 

Part 1 (9-11 pages): An analysis of the country’s/market’s environmental context (and/or immediate context) and the culture your company intends to penetrate. Issues to be analyzed may include:

 

  • Cultural Differences
  • Ideological Differences
  • Instability and Change
  • Foreign Government Control and Bureaucracy
  • Currency Fluctuations and Foreign Exchange
  • Political Pluralism
  • Legal Pluralism
  • External Stakeholders
  • Foreign Direct Investments

 

Note: This list is neither comprehensive nor conclusive, and it is advisable not to investigate all issues in the same paper. The paper should be written from the perspective of negotiation.

This section should include the following: - An analysis of own personal strengths and weaknesses when negotiating with a foreign culture (e.g., face or honor cultures).

The two parts the project should contain are:

 

Part 1 (9-11 pages): An analysis of organizational challenges within the organization for the purpose of identifying opportunities and constraints in international negotiations. Apply Movius and Susskind’s (2009) ‘Built to Win’ framework and consider the following:

 

  • Assess current challenges and opportunities 
  • Negotiation performance
  • Make diagnosis and provide recommendations
  • Identify sponsors and champions
  • Create culture of learning (e.g., adjust and align operating procedures, promote organizational learning) Address persistent barriers.

 

Note: This list is neither comprehensive nor conclusive, and it is advisable not to investigate all issues raised in ‘Built to Win’ in the same paper.

Project 4: Self-selected case study of an international negotiation

This project involves a self-selected case study that may or may not have been discussed in the press. The project may either analyze the negotiation process or the outcome (or both), and attempt to address to what degree culture (including organizational culture) impacted said negotiation.

 

The two parts the project should contain are:

 

Part 1 (9-11 pages): An analysis (comparison/contrast) of two different cultures and their respective negotiation strategies. The project must address the following challenges:

  • An analysis/discussion of how negotiators from two different cultures (e.g., dignity and face) prototypically tend to be similar and different from each other when they negotiate. Your analysis may include considerations of both within and between culture negotiations.
  • An analysis/discussion of the Question and Answer (Q&A) negotiation strategy with the Substantiation and Offers (S&O) negotiation strategy (if focusing on the process). In your response, you must include an assessment of strengths and weaknesses of each strategy based on scientific findings from established negotiation research.
  • An analysis/discussion of how these two cultures tend to resolve disputes. I.e., What are some of the major challenges when these cultures resolve disputes crossculturally?

 

Part 2 (4-6 pages): A Global Negotiation Portfolio

 

This part of the project involves an analysis of your own strengths and weaknesses as a global negotiator. This section should include the following: - An analysis of own personal strengths and weaknesses when negotiating with a foreign culture (e.g., face or honor cultures).

Project Structure:

 

While the project descriptions allow for some individual flexibility, each project must include the following sections:

 

Part 1: Project X

  1. Introduction (brief)
  2. Problem statement (brief)
  3. Theory/Method (brief – esp. if you choose a discussion project)
  4. Analysis (major part of the project)
  5. Discussion (brief)
  6. Conclusion (brief)

 

Part 2: A Global Negotiation Portfolio

  1. Strength/weakness analysis of negotiation with a foreign culture
  2. Strength/weakness analysis of strategic misalignment
  3. References to cases negotiated during the semester and the course literature.

 

It is of the utmost importance that relevant literature from the course syllabus is applied throughout your project to avoid unsubstantiated claims etc.

 

 

 

 

A Note on Collaboration

 

Collaboration is allowed on Part 1, but Part 2 has to be written individually. Each group member uploads an exam (Part 1 is the same for each group member), but make sure you state your group members very clearly, and who is responsible for each section in the paper. 

 

The paper length decreases with 50% for each member (for instance, if part 1 is 10 pages, then it will have to be 15 pages for two people, and 17.5 pages for three people). MAKE SURE your paper conforms to the paper length stated in the curriculum (otherwise it will be rejected).
