About NBOK™ Guide

 

A guide to the Negotiation Body of Knowledge (NBOK™ Guide) delivers guidelines for conducting successful negotiations.

It can be used by anyone wanting to gain knowledge of the basic principles of negotiation as well as those who want to improve their existing negotiation skills. It provides a comprehensive framework that includes aspects and processes for preparing and conducting negotiations. The Aspects of Negotiation are the seven main facets that help you understand negotiation in principle. They are the fundamental features that must be understood in order to relate and compare the different forms of negotiation. The processes described in the NBOK™ Guide offer a systematic approach to negotiation that helps you achieve your preferred outcomes.
