The best way to visualize the interests of the two parties is as two circles – a Venn diagram. Where they overlap is the Scope for Agreement.
But we can also represent positions, BATNAs, and offers on a line.
There will be a gap between their offer and your offer
But you also need to add in your BATNA – your walk-away point – and theirs.
[BATNA = Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement]
This range gives the true SFN: Scope for Negotiation.
But each of you has a PSFN: Perceived Scope for Negotiation.
This is based on where you each perceive the other’s BATNA is
This can be wider or narrower than the true SFN
1. When you prepare for your next negotiation, think carefully about:
– Your starting position
– Your BATNA
– And your perceived scope for negotiation (2 MC CPD Points)
