For more information, please visit the author`s website at www.michaelwheeler.com. It helped me save $23,000. I knew something about the negotiations before I read them. Michael Wheelers The Art of Negotiation: How to Improvise Agreement in a Chaotic World is on the shoulders of a series of previous books on the negotiations of Wheeler`s colleagues in the negotiation program at Harvard Law School (PON) and others, but not because they need their support. Instead, The Art of Negotiation highlights the most important models of these books by showing why, when and how to improvise in relation to them. Some standard trading models seem static, Wheeler says, while controlling trading requires managing the “inherent uncertainty” of almost every negotiation, which requires improvisation, which often involves taking time off from a certain trading model, combining elements of more than one model, or reviewing your goals or plan to achieve them. It provides compelling arguments and attractive and uplifting examples, as well as guidelines not only from negotiations, but also from social sciences, improvisation and military training. The art of trial is clear and full of discernment, grace and humour. It makes an important contribution to the negotiating literature. I am waiting and I hope that this will affect the doctrine of negotiation, training and the stock market. Wheeler (Harvard Business School/Negotiation, 2003, etc.) distills his teaching and research experience in extending negotiation methods. The author writes that many trading tactics do not… This review essay describes the book, introduces a new system of understanding trading patterns and uses it to explain and expand some of the ideas in The Art of Negotiation.
Then he offers another title for Wheeler`s book and describes recent efforts to combine improv with training and practice of negotiation and mediation. I would like to pay tribute to Wheeler`s important work through enlargement. Thirty years ago, Roger Fisher and Bill Ury wrote the groundbreaking book Getting to Yes. It has established the approach of mutual gains in negotiations or what the popular media like to call “win-win negotiations”. But there are few, if any, negotiating situations where everyone can get everything they want. In reality, most people want to win win-win negotiations. And the way to win is to come up with a proposed deal that is “good” for the other side and “great” for you. Michael Wheeler highlights the improvised nature of the negotiation by attacking his own research and work with colleagues at Program on Negotiation. He explains how best practices from diplomats like George J. Mitchell, dealmaker Bruce Wasserstein and Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub are on daily transactions like selling a home, buying a car or landing a new contract application.
Wheeler also uses lessons from fields such as jazz, sports, theatre and even military science. It was a solid book on the negotiations. I learned some good tactics to improve my skills in this area. Not my favorite book on this topic, but it was decent. Harvard-educated business school professor Michael Wheeler has taught thousands of MBA students, executives, executives and officials from companies and organizations around the world to negotiate. Wheeler is the editor of the Negotiation Journal, published by the Negotiation Program at Harvard Law School, and co-chair of the board of directors of the non-profit Consensus Building Institute.
