Assignment 1: Dimensions of Negotiation & Organizational Conflict Resolution
Every day we are confronted to conflicts and situations when we have to negotiate. It could be either a negotiation between parents and children, employees and employers or a contract between two companies. Negotiation is a complex social process of decision making between two or more parties that discuss to find a solution for their opposing interests.
Negotiation includes many dimensions. In the first part, I will present you the ten dimensions that I believe are the most important in the negotiation process, as a form of a logical framework. And then, I ...view middle of the document...

A) The Decision can be analyzed under four criteria:
1) Choice: the Decision is made among different choices possible.
2) Risk: the Word is uncertain so the Decision is always risky related to the future.
3) Renunciation: resources are limited, so deciding always means renouncing to some alternatives.
4) Responsibility: the decision maker has to assume its choice and the consequences that it can have for the company, stakeholders, the third party, etc…
According to Mintzberg, the decision is represented by a triangle:
LOOK (Perception)
Take information

The Decision can be defined as “the thought process of selecting a logical choice from the available options. When trying to make a good decision, a person must weight the positives and negatives of each option, and consider all the alternatives. For effective decision making, a person must be able to forecast the outcome of each option as well, and based on all these items, determine which option is the best for that particular situation.” (

2) Look for solutions.
3) Compare alternatives (according to objective criteria).
4) Evaluate consequences of each option.
5) Put it into action.
Assuming that negotiators are rational means that in a certain situation they can evaluate all the alternatives and chose the solution that optimize their interests. The decision maker has to know perfectly the different options. However, being totally rational is not possible because: some information is not available, the World is too complex and the future is uncertain. Moreover, according to Simon & March (1958), the rationality is limited: it has cognitive, emotional and organizational limits.
B) According to Robbins & Judge (2008), the Motivation is a process by which a person gives intensity, direction and persistence to an action in order to reach a certain goal. The direction is given by the goals that are defined before a negotiation. Then, the persistence refers to the period during...
