Negotiation is considered a skill in understanding how to adapt to various communication situations. Your negotiation style may vary with others and your ability to adapt takes practice and learning. Understanding your own abilities will help you determine where you need to improve your skills.

Respond to these questions:

  1. Interpret your total score: 19–22 = excellent; 15–18 = good; 11–14 = fair.
  2. How did you rate as a negotiator?
  3. What can you do to improve your negotiation skills?
  4. What did you learn from this assessment?

ASSIGNMENT

The following Assignment assesses the following course outcome:

MT453-5: Evaluate the key differences between international and domestic sales strategies.

Make sure to take the Hofstede cultural differences Learning Activity prior to attempting this Assignment.

We have many segments in our society with differing cultures and views of interpersonal relationships. When a company wants to work with international markets, we may see a wider diversity in these differences even when some countries are fairly homogeneous in their culture. When are faced with international differences we must adapt. Evaluating international differences can help you prepare for future sales calls to the specific markets.

Scenario (fictitious):

There is a farming cooperative in southern Mexico that wants to purchase some drones for soil assessment from your company Drones International (DI).

Your Director of Sales (Sherry Jones) is going to set up this meeting with the Purchasing Director of the Mexican Cooperative (Jorge Rodriguez).

Sherry Jones wants to hold the meeting at 10:00 am ET in their offices and her goal is to have the sale agreed to by the end of the meeting.
