High-Value Contracts:  Buy Side or Sell Side, when the negotiation is high in value, every percentage point – and every term and condition – affects your company’s profitability.
Long-Term, Complex Contracts:  The longer the term and the more complex the variables involved in a contract, the greater the importance of strategy, expertise, planning, analysis, and coaching.
Strategic Alliances:  the question in strategic alliances or partnership agreements is not just whether they will work, but also for whom they will work.  Make sure your alliances serve you and your partner by getting the negotiation right.
