Negotiation skill is often associated with a winning corporate strategy. However, this often does not work out. This is because too much of hard bargaining or negotiation often leads to a souring of relationship even before work begins. Roles too need to be defined in advance. Else, there is the possibility of ambiguity. Often those that are driven to a corner towards a bad deal, underperform during the project. Conflicts of interest must thus be avoided. Hard bargaining, is thus not often worth the risk of jeopardizing the quality of actual work. Thus, it must be company practice to ensure the roles between negotiation and implementation are well- drafted right from the outset.

A lot of companies during their growth path, are faced with delays in decision- making. This is because it gets difficult for most to keep up with the pace of growth. Leaders then often get criticized for not taking decisive quick decisions. Ironically, leaders often do not even know that they are supposed to be taking a decision, as there is no clear channel for ideas to be presented. Team members would thus be advised to do thorough business research and then to tailor their communication when presenting their ideas to their team heads. Data needs to be thoroughly studied, to find the right problem or opportunity. A well- structured recommendation needs to be then crafted.
