Case Study: Noisy Neighbors (graded)

Linda and Larry are angry because their new neighbors in the apartment complex, Dale and Donna, seem to hold late-night parties every Thursday. Linda and Larry both have long work days that require them to rise early and remain alert all day. Linda and Larry have asked Dale and Donna to keep the noise down on Thursday nights and conclude their parties by midnight. Dale and Donna have ignored their requests. Linda and Larry have reached their boiling points and have decided to call the police this Thursday if the party goes on beyond midnight.

Given this scenario, how have Linda and Larry handled the conflict thus far? What should they do now?

Additional questions to consider:

  1. 1.Some negotiating is “interest-based”, and some is “rights based”.What determines which approach is better and which approach is least costly?
  2. 2.When is “active avoidance” appropriate?

Given your own scoring on the Personal Bargaining Inventory, how well would you have likely handled the situation if you were Kelly?

DeVry HRM 595 Week 3 Topic Proposal Assignment latest

Course Project

By the end of the week, submit a topic proposal for your Negotiation Analysis Paper. The proposal (one page) should describe the focus of the paper and your method.

a workplace negotiation, such as a complex contract, new position or new salary (preferred);

a complex business transaction, such as a merger or acquisition;

a complex real estate purchase;

a union-management contract (including professional sports leagues);

a neighborhood group negotiating zoning concerns with a city government;

a negotiation between divorcing spouses who have complex settlement issues; and

a negotiation between a vendor and business over products and services.

The above are representative examples of possible topics. The important thing to keep in mind in your topic selection is that the negotiation should be complex enough that you can preform a thoughtful and critical analysis in your paper using concepts learned in this course.

  • On essay questions, your answers should be succinct, should fully address each part of the question, and should demonstrate your knowledge and understanding in a concise but complete answer.Most essay questions require answers that are a couple of paragraphs (not a couple of sentences) that directly speak to each part of the question.
  • Remember to always use proper citation when quoting other sources.This means that ANY borrowed material (even a short phrase) should be placed in quotation marks with the source (URL, author/date/page #) immediately following the end of the passage (the end quote). Changing a few words in a passage does NOT constitute putting it in your own words and proper citation is still required. Borrowed material should NOT dominate a student’s work, but should only be used sparingly to support your own thoughts, ideas, and examples. Heavy usage of borrowed material (even if properly cited) can jeopardize the points for that question. Un-cited material can jeopardize a passing grade on the exam.
