Securing agreements, be that between you and clients, suppliers, management or other outside connections is an everyday part of modern business culture. If you have negotiated well, the extra benefits fall to you, if you have not negotiated well, the extra benefits simply fall to the other party. Modern management skills rate the value of good negotiation skills as vital for managers to progress their careers as the skill will be called on frequently and its results are easily measured. Equally, if you are in sales or sales management, staff representative or managing a team, the skill of negotiation cannot be underestimated.
