How does your organisation’s negotiation capability stack-up? How do you get up to scratch? Do you have the right team, strategy and skills for agreeing your next business-critical deal? Who was the real winner in your last major negotiation? Scotwork’s senior negotiation consultants work with you to answer these and other vital questions. By sharing insights, shaping strategies and raising skill-levels we instill best-practice business-wide. And make you more competitive.


How effectively does your team or organisation negotiate? Are you below, on par with or above your industry benchmark? What are you really good at, and where do you fall short? Our online survey tells you how capable your organisation is, and where and how to maximise your negotiation performance.

NSCS gives you a comprehensive, factual and concise answer to your questions:

  • Discover the behavioural dynamics of how your people conduct a negotiation and the effect they have on outcomes.
  • How effectively does my team negotiate?
  • Are there common issues to fix?
  • Are there gaps in competency?
  • What are the priorities for skills development?
  • How do we benchmark by function, division or sector?
  • What development objectives will deliver the greatest returns from my team?

Taking the survey

50 critical negotiation behaviour and style points to:

  • Explore how effectively they prepare
  • Review how they present their own case and take account of others’ needs to achieve deals
  • Understand how the organisation empowers people to reach agreements
  • Evaluate your people’s own view of the quality of the deals they achieve and their effect on continued relationships with your customers, suppliers or staff
  • Discover the behavioural dynamics of how your people conduct a negotiation and the effect they have on outcomes

Maximising your negotiation performance
The report focuses on nine areas of negotiating and compares the results of your respondents with those of thousands of negotiators in more than a hundred businesses in 23 geographical areas around the world. It offers conclusions and recommendations to develop the team's negotiating capability. Providing critical insights before and during their skills development programmes.

What happens next?

With over 40 years’ experience of teaching negotiating, Scotwork identify areas of development focus where we believe that development would provide benefits in improved negotiating capability and outcomes for your business.
