Discussion: The Roadblock Do not include any names of people or organizations in your Discussion. Think back to a time where you were either leading or participating in a negotiation and one of the parties involved had the mindset that President Kennedy described, “…what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.” ( John F. Kennedy, The Berlin Crisis: Radio and Television Address to the American People – The White House, July 25, 1961) from – https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/negotiation) Then discuss the following: What was the issue? How many parties were involved? What impact did “mine is mine” have on the negotiation process? Was it resolved in a way that met everyone’s needs? Why/why not? Compare the negotiation strategy (or strategies) used with those of your classmates. Which did you find the most effective and why? In each discussion forum, students are expected to respond to the prompt by providing an informed, rigorous, and professional post. The initial post should be at least 150 words. In addition, students are required to respond at least 2 times to their classmates’ posts in a similarly informed, rigorous, and professional manner. Peer replies should be at least 100 words in order to qualify as substantive. Refer to the discussion rubric for more details. Rubrics GE Discussion Grading Rubric - Timeliness v2
You are required to develop a Project Business Case (setting up a new business venture) with clearly defined benefits of the expected project outputs. As projects are expected to solve some problems and/or deliver some benefits, the Project Business Case should focus on justifying the rationale of the project—-why the project is needed and what benefits the project can deliver. Some of the key considerations in the report can be: 1, Project Definition. This section shall define the project in terms of problem statement, and/or expected benefits, with clear objectives and contribution to some strategic achievements. 2, High Level Scope definition, with critical success factors and some measurable targets. It should also include realistic resource estimates. 3, A risk assessment of the project and project context, identifying the controls required to minimise or eliminate these risks, including an outline of any potential economic and environmental problems that may be relevant. Any issues you consider as important can be included in the group report in order to justify the rationale of the project initiative. The Project Business Case MUST include the use of appropriate project tools such as, Risk Assessment Matrices, GANTT, and Stakeholders Analysis etc.

1.You just assumed the Director of New Product Innovation role at your firm. As such, you and your group are responsible for all whitespace market analysis, including ideation and evaluation of potential new product ideas. Your new boss, the VP of Global Expansion, mentions that you’ve inherited a very talented team during your onboarding meeting, buts he has one big concern. She believes the team is susceptible to overly biased thinking based on the work she’s seen from them over the past 12 months. You subsequently speak up with zeal, “not a problem; we covered individual and team biases in my Z596 MBA course in the Kelley Direct Program!” She’s excited to know that you’re well trained and asks you to write up a quick briefing document for her with your plan to manage for bias accordingly. Please outline, with examples, three individual biases which may impact your team’s thinking and work product. In addition, using class content and examples, please develop a multi-point working process for your New Product Innovation team that stands the best chance of controlling for individual and team biases as they make decisions and recommendations.

Module 4 – Case NEGOTIATION Assignment Overview For this Case Assignment, we are going to revisit the good folks at Informational Systems. Remember the generational issues they were having in Module 3? In that Case you were asked to discuss which management styles would or would not work to help resolve their issues. Now we are going to get the key players around the table and start the negotiation phase. Pay attention to the details. Though the scenario states that “One of the issues is interdependence,” is there really only “one” issue? Here again is the scenario: The issues in the software development area of Informational Systems have grown into a genuine workplace conflict. One of the issues is interdependence—the Millennials want to schedule their work on their timetable and not rely on the work schedule of the older Baby Boomers. Also, the Baby Boomers are pushing for changes in the rewards system—they believe that bonuses should be commensurate with performance, while the Millennials think that everyone should be rewarded equally for participation in projects. Case Assignment NOTE: There are no right or wrong answers for this assignment. What’s important is how thoroughly you support your responses. After reviewing the scenario and the readings, especially the sections (including the embedded videos) on Stages of Negotiation and Types of Negotiating Strategies, prepare a 2- to 3-page paper on the following: First define exactly what you think is really driving the conflict. Then Using the five-step process found under Stages of Negotiation, work through each step describing what you would do to meet each step’s criteria. Use your experience and the readings when working through the questions – not all of the information you will need to answer the questions is in the scenario. Begin with Preparation and Planning. Your paper should follow this outline and answer each of the questions: Statement of the issue: what do you think is the actual underlying concern that is causing these two groups to not be able to work together? Support your answer using the scenario. Then respond to these questions under each Step as noted in the Stages of Negotiation section. Preparation and Planning What do you as the leader of the negotiation want to walk away with? What are the goals of each party? What do you think they will ask for? Do you think either party (or both) has a hidden agenda? Why/why not? What might they settle for? Does that differ from what you have in mind? Definition of Ground Rules Who will do the negotiating for each party? Where will the negotiation take place? Will there be time constraints placed on the process? HINT: Go back to the scenario to see how quickly you think this needs to be resolved). Will there be any limits to what each party wants? Why/why not? What will you do if an agreement cannot be reached? If you bring in a third-party negotiator will it be 1) an Arbitrator, 2) a Conciliator, 3) a Consultant, 4) a Mediator? Explain your choice based on the scenario and the information under “Third-Party Negotiations”. Clarification and Justification Describe your position as negotiator. Describe the millennial’s position. Describe the Boomer’s position. Bargaining and Problem Solving What is your optimal solution as negotiator? Would the millennials accept this? Why/why not? Would the Boomers accept this? Why/why not? If neither party accepts, what will you do? If both parties accept, what will you do? Closure and Implementation What is the final resolution agreed to by all parties? How will you implement it? Assignment Expectations Use concepts from the modular background readings as well as any good quality resources you can find. Cite all sources within the text and in a reference list at the end of the paper. Length: 2–3 pages double-spaced and typed. The following items will be assessed in particular: Your ability to follow prescribed assignment content guidelines. Your ability to apply the basic concepts to the questions. Some in-text references to the modular background readings (APA formatting required). The essay should address each element of the assignment. Remember to support your answers with solid references, including the case readings. Upload your paper as a .docx file to the Case 4 Dropbox when it is completed.
