Negotiation Presentation Library Resources

Your negotiation presentation assignment requires you to present an analysis of a real negotiation of the past or present. We recommend using the following library databases and resources to gather high quality resources to support your deliverable. Remember that there will be more information available if at least one of the companies involved in the negotiation is a publicly traded company. 

Additional Negotiation Search Strategies

Details of negotiations may be difficult to find, especially if one or multiple companies involved are private. This is due to the confidentiality involved. After using the library databases listed above, use the following resources & strategies to expand your research: 

  • Local media often reports on developments within businesses in their region, as it may effect the local economy and residents. Identify local media for the companies involved in the negotiation, then search their archives for reporting on your negotiation.
  • Using Google Advanced Search: 
    • enter both company names in the "all these words" box then in the "any of these words" box enter negotiation negotiations negotiate 
    • enter both company names in the "all these words" box, hit search, then on the results page click on tools in the upper right, then on any time in the upper left, then click on custom range and enter a time frame that encompasses the dates around the negotiation
    • in your research, you will probably come across the names of executives in either/both/all companies involved in the negotiation. Search for their names and their company name to see if there are any interviews with them that might give greater detail to the negotiation.
