  1. Negotiation Paige Turner – Bestbooks Case

  2. Paige Turner – Best books • Contract negotiation between an author and a book company. • 8 issues to negotiate over. Point totals are on the back. DO NOT TALK ABOUT POINTS, but realize that you want to maximize your point value. • You have 30 minutes to reach an agreement • CORRECTION: Bestbook’s point sheet has wrong header, rest of the page is ok

  3. Solution • What is the max point value for Turner’s Agent? • What is the max point value for Bestbooks? • Who has the highest point total?

  4. Issues • Fixed Sum: distributive, best thing to do is trade off • Variable Sum: integrative, potential to optimize mutual gain. Gaining information from each other would lead to both sides getting maximum amount of points. • Compatible: integrative, both sides have the same interests
