Improving Purchasing Negotiation Skills

25th May 2021

Negotiation is a two-way communication wherein the dealing parties always have some issues on which the settlement is sought. All such issues provide the subject matter for the negotiation. It should also be noted that negotiation is possible only for those issues which are subject to settlement under various alternative sources. There cannot be any negotiation for an issue which has the one and the only solution.
