Extras from AMA

Pre-Qualifying Exam: This is an advanced seminar designed for those who already have a solid knowledge of the fundamentals of negotiating. No basics will be covered. Ideally, you have taken AMA’s Negotiating to Win seminar #2513 or similar basic negotiation training.

We have designed a series of pre-qualifying questions that we recommend you take before registering; the answers you choose will help us assess the best learning path for you.

Two weeks before your seminar, you will receive a copy of Negotiation: Readings , Exercises and Cases, 5th ed., by Roy J. Lewicki ($90 value). In this book, you are required to read the “Pacific Oil Case Study” (pp. 588–607). You’ll be working with this case study and will need to bring the book with you when you attend the seminar.

In addition, please come with a complex negotiation in mind. This will help you mentally adapt what you learn during your seminar to your real-life situation.
