Agile Negotiation

The Workshop

Scrum transformed the way you develop software; let Agile Negotiation transform the way you get what you need for yourself and your team. Agilists put great importance on "Individuals & Interactions" and "Customer Collaboration." Do you have the tools to support these values? Are you a high-performing negotiator?

During this 1-day workshop you'll be introduced to a framework you can use to move from positional negotiation to a value-driven approach. The transformation to Agile Negotiation is as powerful as the switch from Waterfall to Scrum.

I learned a lot at Agile 2013, and hold the skills taught in this session among the most valuable. Your style is is funny, casual, yet serious and to-the-point. Perfect for our forum.
