  6. 6. Syllabus: Program of Study • Project management framework • Project Initiating processes • Scope management • Time management • Cost management • Quality management • HR management • Communication management • Stakeholder management • Procurement management • Risk management • Integration management • Professional conduct • Jan 2016 Exam changes
  7. 7. Project. A temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result (not operation: ongoing and repetitive, can be included in the project if it’s a part of it). Progressive Elaboration. The iterative process of increasing the level of detail in a project management plan as greater amounts of information and more accurate estimates become available (rolling wave planning). I1 Temporary has a beginning & an end Unique product, service, or result Progressive Elaboration Business Case. Typically, the business need (Market demand, Organizational need, Customer request, Technological advance, Legal requirement, Social need) and the cost-benefit analysis are contained in the business case to justify the project. Note: Feasibility Study. Usually consists of Technical, Economic, Market/ Environmental, and Legal studies. Statement of Work (SOW). by initiator, sponsor or customer - A narrative description of products, services, or results to be delivered by the project (Business need, Product scope description, Strategic plan).
  8. 8. Product Life Cycle. phases of a product, from concept through delivery, growth, maturity, and to retirement (Benefit/Cost =1). Project Life Cycle. The series of phases that a project passes through from its initiation to its closure (Project Boundary). I2 Predictive Life Cycle. project scope, and the time and cost required to deliver that scope, are determined as early as possible. Iterative Life Cycle. Iterations develop the product through a series of repeated cycles, while increments successively add to the functionality of the product. Incremental Life Cycle. A project life cycle where the project scope is generally determined early in the project life cycle, but time and cost estimates are routinely modified. Adaptive Life Cycle. change-driven or agile methods - Scrum, iterative and incremental, but differ in that iterations are very rapid. Predictive Life Cycle
  9. 9. Project Management. The application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements/ objectives. Constraint. A limiting factor that affects the execution of a project, program, portfolio, or process (time, cost, quality, scope, risk, resources & customer satisfaction). Project Management Process Group. A logical grouping of project management inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs. Initiating Process Group. obtaining authorization to start the project or phase (Two Processes out of 47 Processes ). Planning Process Group. define the course of action required to attain the objectives (most important). Executing Process Group. to complete the work defined in the project management plan (most time and resource usage). Monitoring and Controlling Process Group. to track, review, and regulate the progress and performance of the project; identify any areas in which changes to the plan are required; and initiate the corresponding changes. Closing Process Group. to finalize all activities to formally close a project or phase. I3
  10. 10. I4 Subproject. A smaller portion of the overall project created when a project is subdivided into more manageable components or pieces. Program. Related projects, subprograms, and program activities managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits not available from managing them individually. Portfolio. Projects, programs, subportfolios, and operations managed as a group to achieve strategic objectives. Organizational Project Management Maturity. The level of an organization’s ability to deliver the desired strategic outcomes in a predictable, controllable, and reliable manner - Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3®). Project Management Office (PMO). An organizational structure that standardizes the project-related governance processes and facilitates the sharing of resources, methodologies, tools, and techniques (supportive, controlling & directive). Project Governance. The alignment of project objectives with the strategy of the larger organization by the project sponsor and project team, and is required to fit within the larger context of the program or organization sponsoring it, but is separate from organizational governance.
  11. 11. Product-oriented processes. These specify and create the project’s product, typically defined by project life cycle and vary by application area. I5 Phase-to-Phase Relationships: - Sequential relationship. -Overlapping relationship.
  12. 12. Projectized Organization the project manager has full authority (team is loyal to the project – buy-in, but don’t have home). Functional Organization. clear superior, and staff are grouped by areas of specialization (team has career path, technical support). Matrix Organization. the project manager shares responsibility with the functional managers (strong, balanced & weak: expeditor or coordinator). Composite Organization fundamentally functional organization may create a special project team. PM may interact with : Strategic, middle management, and operational levels. 12
  13. 13. Organizational Governance. Organizations use governance to establish strategic direction and performance parameters. Organizational governance criteria can impose constraints on projects - particularly if the project delivers a service which will be subject to strict organizational governance. Organizational Process Assets. Plans, processes, policies, procedures, and knowledge bases that are used by the performing organization (historical information, lessons learned, policies, templates,…). Enterprise Environmental Factors. Conditions, not under the immediate control of the team, that influence, constrain, or direct the project, program, or portfolio. Business Value. a concept that is unique to each organization. Business value is defined as the entire value of the business; the total sum of all tangible and intangible elements. Project Management Information System (PMIS). An information system consisting of the tools and techniques used to gather, integrate, and disseminate the outputs of project management processes. It is used to support all aspects of the project from initiating through closing, and can include both manual and automated systems. Work Authorization System. A subsystem of the overall project management system. It is a collection of formal documented procedures that defines how project work will be authorized (committed) to ensure that the work is done by the identified organization, at the right time, and in the proper sequence. It includes the steps, documents, tracking system, and defined approval levels needed to issue work authorizations. I7
  14. 14. Stakeholder. who may affect, be affected by, or perceive itself to be affected by a decision, activity, or outcome of a project. Customer. that will pay for the project’s product, service, or result. Customers can be internal or external to the performing organization. Sponsor. who provides resources (funding to specific scope) and support (with stakeholders) for the project, program, or portfolio and is accountable for enabling success. I8 The project manager is the person assigned by the performing organization to lead the team that is responsible for achieving the project objectives. Depending on the organizational structure, a project manager may report to a functional manager. PM may be one of several project managers who report to a program or portfolio manager. 1- Responsibilities and Competencies of the Project Manager. to satisfy task needs, team needs, and individual needs. Competencies: -Knowledge – Performance -Personal, and balancing the project constraints. 2- Interpersonal Skills of a Project Manager. such as: - Leadership, - Team building, - Motivation, - Communication, - Influencing, - Decision making, - Political and cultural awareness, - Negotiation, - Trust building, - Conflict management, and - Coaching.
  15. 15. Project Selection I9 Economic Value Added (EVA). concerned with whether the project returns to the company more value than the initiative costs. Payback period. Payback period in capital budgeting refers to the period of time to recoup the funds expended in an investment. Working Capital. current assets minus liabilities for an organization or amount of money the company has available to invest. Benefit cost ratio (BCR). the amount of money a project is going to make versus cost to build it. Generally, if benefit is higher than cost, the project is a good investment. Net present value (NPV). This is the actual value at a given time of the project minus all of the costs associated with it. This includes the time it takes to build it. People calculate this number to see if it’s worth doing a project (PV = FV / (1+r)^n). Discount Rate. The interest rate used to calculate present value of expected yearly benefits and costs. Internal rate of return. This is the amount of money the project will return to the company that is funding it. It’s how much money a project is making the company. It’s usually expressed as a percentage of the funding that has been allocated to it. Depreciation. The rate at which project loses value over time. the product loses value as time goes on (Straight line: The same amount of depreciation is each year, Accelerated: Double Declining Balance, Sum of the Years Digits) . Lifecycle costing. it’s really useful to figure out how much you expect a project to cost - not just to develop, to support the product once it’s in place and being used by customer. Opportunity cost. When an organization has to choose between projects, it’s always giving up the money would have made on the next best one it doesn’t do (not selected). Sunk cost. is a cost that has already been incurred and cannot be recovered. Sunk costs should not affect the rational decision-maker's best choice, the prospective cost is an avoidable future cost and is properly included in any decision-making processes. Law of Diminishing Returns. After a certain point, adding more input/ resource/ money will not produce a proportional increase in productivity/ return. Trade-offs by two categories: 1. Benefit measurement methods (Comparative approach) - Murder board (a panel of people who try to shoot down a new project idea). - Peer review . - Scoring models . - Economic models (described aside). 2. Constrained optimization methods (Mathematical approach) Linear programming . Integer programming . Dynamic programming . Multi-objective programming.

PMIS (the work authorization system). Expert Judgement. Such expertise is provided by any group or individual with specialized knowledge or training. Facilitation techniques. Building consensus and overcoming obstacles. Brainstorming, conflict resolution, problem solving, and meeting management are examples of key techniques used by facilitators. Project Charter. A document issued by the project initiator or sponsor that formally authorizes the existence of a project and provides the project manager with the authority (milestones is helpful in management, may use phase exits/ stage gates/ decision gates/ kill points as phase end reviews to determine if the project should continue and correct errors). Not having a project charter is unethical, it wastes company time, human resources, and money.
  18. 18. P2 13.1. Identify Stakeholders Procurement Documents. Relevant parties, such as the parties in the contracts, suppliers, should also be considered as part of the project stakeholder list. Stakeholder Analysis. systematically gathering and analyzing quantitative and qualitative information to determine whose interests should be taken into account throughout the project (as early as possible, Stakeholders can be identified throughout the project). There are multiple classification models, such as: - Power/interest grid, grouping the stakeholders based on their level of authority (“power”) and their level or concern (“interest”) regarding the project outcomes; - Power/influence grid, grouping the stakeholders based on their level of authority (“power”) and their active involvement (“influence”) in the project; - Influence/impact grid, grouping based on their active involvement (“influence”) and their ability to effect changes to the project’s planning or execution (“impact”); - Salience model, describing classes of stakeholders based on their power (ability to impose their will), urgency (need for immediate attention), and legitimacy (their involvement is appropriate). Stakeholder Register. A project document including the identification, assessment (e.g. skill), and classification of project stakeholders (should be shared with others at the discretion of the project manager). Key stakeholders include anyone in a decision-making or management role who is impacted by the project outcome.

The key benefit of this process is by balancing the requirement with the benefit of organization. It also provides a common understanding of the project scope among project stakeholders. Product Analysis. For projects that have a product as a deliverable, it is a tool to define scope that generally means asking questions about a product and forming answers to describe the use, characteristics, and other the relevant aspects of what is going to be manufactured.

  35. 35. - Prevention over inspection. Quality should be planned, designed, and built into - not inspected into the project’s management or the project’s deliverables (quality is planned-in, not inspected-in), Philip Crosby: zero defect. - Continuous improvement. (Kaizen: Japanese means continuous improvement) The PDCA (plan-do-check-act) cycle is the basis for quality improvement as defined by Shewhart and modified by Deming. In addition, quality improvement initiatives such as Total Quality Management (TQM), Six Sigma, and Lean Six Sigma could improve the quality of the project’s management as well as the quality of the project’s product. Commonly used process improvement models include Malcolm Baldrige, Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3®), and Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI®). Just-in-Time. Means keeping only the inventory you need on hand when you need it. So, instead of keeping a big inventory of parts sitting around. Some companies have done away with warehouses all together and have production lines take the parts directly off the trucks to do the work. If you’re working in a Just-in-Time shop, quality is really important because there isn’t any extra inventory to deal with mistakes/ rework. Quality. The degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfills requirements, (ISO 9000) [10]. (Customer satisfaction, fitness for use & conformance to requirements). Grade. A category or rank used to distinguish items that have the same functional use but different technical characteristics (e.g., “hammer”) but do not share the same requirements for quality (e.g., different hammers may need to withstand different amounts of force). 8- Quality Management
  36. 36. P20 8.1. Plan Quality Management Quality Management Plan. A component of the project management plan describes how an organization’s quality policies will be implemented and how to meet project’s quality requirements (specs.: conformance within tolerance). Process Improvement Plan. It details the steps for analyzing processes to identify activities that enhance value (process boundaries- process owner, configuration- graphical, metrics & targets). Quality Metrics. A description of a project or product attribute and how to measure it, include: function points, mean time between failure (MTBF), and mean time to repair (MTTR). Quality Checklists. A structured tool used to verify that a set of required steps. Cost-Benefit Analysis. A financial analysis tool to determine the benefits provided by a project against costs (marginal analysis: to determine level of quality). Cost of Quality. The cost of preventing mistakes is generally much less than the cost of correcting mistakes when they are found by inspection or during usage. Conformance Work. Work is done to compensate for imperfections that prevent organizations from completing planned activities correctly as essential first-time work, that are related to prevention and appraisal/ inspection (to avoid failure). Nonconformance Work. Work is done to deal with the consequences of errors and failures (because of failure - internal & external). In efficient quality management systems, the amount of nonconformance work will approach zero.
  37. 37. 37 Seven Basic Quality Tools. A standard toolkit for planning, monitoring, and controlling the issues related to quality. Fishbone diagram (1). Cause and Effect Diagram (Ishikawa). A decomposition technique that helps trace an undesirable effect back to its root cause, to simulate thinking & discuss. Flowchart (2). The depiction in a diagram format of the inputs, process actions, and outputs of one or more processes. Pareto Diagram (3). (Joseph Juran- 80/20: Heuristics) A histogram, ordered by frequency of occurrence, that shows how many results were generated by each identified cause. Control Chart (4). A graphic display of process data over time and against control limits. Run Chart. Trend analysis. Control Limits. The area composed of standard deviations on either side of the centerline or mean, any out of control is assignable (special) cause and require investigation. Specification Limits. customer’s requirements, may be greater than or less than the area defined by the control limits. Rule of seven. A process is considered out of control when 7 consecutive plot points are all above or all below the mean. Accuracy. assessment of correctness (conformance to target). Precision: dispersion of the data; standard deviation (6 sigma (σ)= 99.9997%, 3 sigma (σ)=99.73%, 2 sigma (σ)= 95.46%, 1 sigma (σ)= 68.27%). Checksheets (5). A tally sheet that can be used as a checklist when gathering data. Histogram (6). A special form of bar chart used to describe the central tendency (group around mean, median or mode), dispersion, and shape of a statistical distribution. Scatter Diagram (7). A correlation chart (+ve or -ve) that uses a regression line to explain or to predict how the change in an independent variable will change a dependent variable.
  38. 38. P21 Benchmarking. Benchmarking is the comparison of actual or planned practices, to identify best practices, generate ideas for improvement, and provide a basis for measuring performance. Design of Experiments. A statistical method for identifying which factors may influence specific variables of a product or process under development or in production. Statistical Sampling. Choosing part of a population of interest for inspection. - Mutual exclusive: can’t happen at the same time like head and tail. - Statistical independence: is the opposite of conditional probability. It states that the probability of one event occurring does not affect the probability of another event occurring. Additional Quality Planning Tools. They include, but are not limited to: brainstorming, force field analysis (These are diagrams of the forces for and against change), nominal group techniques and quality management and control tools. 8.2. Perform Quality Assurance Quality Audits. A quality audit is a structured, independent process to determine if project activities comply with procedures/method statement, policies and processes, (by internal or external auditors). Process Analysis. A process analysis follows the steps outlined in the process improvement plan to identify needed improvements (add-value).
  39. 39. 39 Quality Management and Control Tools. They are a type of quality planning tools used to link and sequence the activities identified. Affinity Diagram (1). A group creativity technique that allows large numbers of ideas to be classified into groups for review and analysis. Process Decision Program Charts (2-PDPC). The PDPC is used to understand a goal in relation to the steps for getting to the goal. Tree Diagram (3). A systematic diagram of a decomposition hierarchy used to visualize as parent-to-child relationships a systematic set of rules. Prioritization Matrices (4). A quality management planning tool used to identify key issues and evaluate suitable alternatives to define a set of implementation priorities. Interrelationship Digraphs (5). A quality management planning tool, the interrelationship digraphs provide a process for creative problem- solving in moderately complex scenarios that possess intertwined logical relationships. Network Diagrams (6). Matrix Diagrams (7). A quality management and control tool used to perform data analysis within the organizational structure created in the matrix. The matrix diagram seeks to show the strength of relationships between factors, causes, and objectives that exist between the rows and columns that form the matrix.
  40. 40. P22 8.3. Control Quality Perform Quality Control. Control Quality is the process of monitoring and recording results of executing the quality activities to assess performance and recommend necessary changes. Deliverable. Any unique and verifiable product, result, or capability to perform a service that is required to be produced to complete a process, phase, or project. Seven basic quality tools. Statistical sampling./ Attribute sampling (the result either conforms or does not conform - pass/ fail basis) and variables sampling (the result is rated on a continuous scale that measures the degree of conformity). Inspection. Also known as reviews, peer reviews, audits, or walkthroughs. Approved Change Requests Review. A review of the change requests to verify that these were implemented as approved. Validated Changes. Any changed or repaired items are inspected and will be either accepted or rejected before notification of the decision is provided. Rejected items may require rework. Verified Deliverables. Deliverables that are result of executing quality control process to determine correctness. The process of (5.5. Validate Scope) to be implemented after this process.
  41. 41. P23 9.1. Plan Human Resource Management Human Resource Management Plan. A component of the project management plan that describes how the roles and responsibilities, reporting relationships, required skills, and staff management will be addressed and structured (Roles and responsibilities - Project organization charts - Staffing management plan: source, calendars/ histogram, release plan, training, rewards,…). Organization charts and position descriptions. Most of the formats fall into one of three types hierarchical -OBS (1) Organizational Breakdown Structure , text-oriented(2) (role of each stakeholder is determined by project manager and stakeholder).The matrix format(3). This also ensures that for any one task there is only one person accountable to avoid confusion of responsibility. One example of a RAM (Responsibility Assignment Matrix) is a RACI. RACI uses responsible, accountable, consult, and inform statuses to define the involvement of stakeholders in project activities. Networking. Establishing connections and relationships with other people from the same or other organizations. Organizational Theory. provides information regarding the way in which people, teams, and organizational units behave, applicable theories may recommend exercising a flexible leadership style. Levels of authority should match responsibilities (not competencies).
  42. 42. P24 &25 9.2. Acquire Project Team Pre-assignment. When project team members are selected in advance. Negotiation. Project management team should effectively negotiate and influence others who are in a position to provide the required human resources (dedicated full time, or part time, or others). Acquisition. Obtaining human and material resources necessary to perform project activities (from outside sources). Acquisition implies a cost of resources, and is not necessarily financial. Virtual Teams. groups of people who fulfill their roles with little or no time spent meeting face to face. Project staff assignment. Specify which resources are assigned to each activity. Project staff assignments provide documentation, which includes the list of project team members. 9.3. Develop Project Team Team Performance assessments. As a result of conducting an evaluation of the team’s overall performance/ effectiveness, the project management team can identify the specific training, coaching, mentoring, assistance, or changes required to improve the team’s performance.
  43. 43. fP25 Interpersonal Skills. Soft skills – are behavioral competencies that include proficiencies such as communication skills, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, negotiation, influence, team building, Building trust, Active listening, Overcoming resistance to change and group facilitation (Leadership styles) . Training. Training can be formal or informal. Examples of training methods include classroom, online, computer-based, on-the-job training from project team member. Ground Rules. Expectations regarding acceptable behavior by project team members. Colocation. “Tight matrix,” (sometimes called “war room”) an organizational placement strategy where the project team members are physically located close to one another in order to improve communication, working relationships, and productivity. Recognition and rewards. Generally, money is viewed as a tangible aspect of any reward system, but intangible rewards could be equally or even more effective. Personnel assessment tools. Personnel assessment tools give the project manager and the project team insight into areas of strength and weakness (such as attitudinal surveys, specific assessments, structured interviews, ability tests, and focus groups). 'Halo effect'. The halo effect is essentially a cognitive bias, it’s wrong behavior to promote every good one, because you are good at one thing, you will be good at everything we ask you to do. ‘Perquisites (Perks)’ some employees receives special rewards e.g. parking spaces, corner offices, executive dining. ‘Fringe Benefits’ Standard benefits formally given to all employees, such as insurance, education benefits and profit benefits. Team-building activities. As an ongoing process (The Tuckman Model: Forming. Independent. Storming. Norming. Trust each other. Performing. Well-organized unit. Adjourning. The team completes the work and released / moves on from the project).
  44. 44. 44 Motivation theories: Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs says that people have needs, and until the lower ones (Physiological (like food and warmth), Security - safety and job security, Acceptance on the team) are satisfied they won’t even begin to think about the higher ones (Esteem, Self-actualization (fulfilling your full potential, and making a contribution)). Herzberg’s Motivation-Hygiene Theory What Herzberg figured out was that you need things like good working conditions, a satisfying personal life, and good relations with your boss and coworkers - stuff he called “hygiene factors.” They don’t motivate you, but you need them before you can be motivated. Until you have them, you don’t really care about “motivation factors” like achievement, recognition, personal growth, or career advancement. McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y McGregor tells us that there are two kinds of managers: ones who assume that everyone on the team is selfish and unmotivated, and ones who trust their team to do a good job. He calls the kind of manager who distrusts the team a “Theory X” manager, and the kind who trusts them a “Theory Y” manager, (Theory Z focused on increasing employee loyalty to the company). McClelland’s Achievement Theory says that people need to be motivated. Achievement is when someone performs well and is recognized for it. Power means he or she has a lot of control or influence in the company. And someone feels a strong sense of affiliation from being a part of a working team and having good relationships with coworkers. Expectancy Theory says that you need to give people an expectation of a reward in order to motivate them—but this works only if that award is achievable. If everyone knows the award is either worthless or impossible to achieve, it will actually demotivate them!
  45. 45. P26 9.4. Manage Project Team Issue Log. An issue log can be used to document and monitor who is responsible for resolving specific issues by a target date (unresolved issues can be a major source of conflict and project delays). Performance Reports. See work performance reports (Integration – Control). Observation and Conversation. Observation and conversation are used to stay in touch with the work and attitudes of project team members. Project Performance Appraisals. Objectives for conducting performance appraisals can include clarification of roles and responsibilities, constructive feedback to team members, discovery of unknown or unresolved issues, development of individual training plans, and the establishment of specific future goals. Interpersonal Skills. (Leadership: team with common goal– Influencing: sharing power and relying – Decision making: command, consultation, consensus, and coin flip (random) - Trust building - Political and cultural awareness: communicate directive, collaborative, logical, explorer – Coaching: enhancing their skills to can do) - Management skills, kinds of power (Formal: Legitimate, Reward, Penalty/ Punishment/ coercive: the worst – Expert: the best – Referent: the charisma, admire you and loyal to you).
  46. 46. fP26 Collaborate/Problem Solve (Confronting). Incorporating multiple viewpoints and insights from differing perspectives; requires a cooperative attitude and open dialogue that typically leads to consensus and commitment (win / win). Compromise/Reconcile. Searching for solutions that bring some degree of satisfaction to all parties in order to temporarily or partially resolve the conflict (lose / lose). Smooth/Accommodate. Emphasizing areas of agreement rather than areas of difference; conceding one’s position to the needs of others to maintain harmony and relationships. Withdraw/Avoid. Retreating from an actual or potential conflict situation; postponing the issue to be better prepared or to be resolved by others. Force/Direct. Pushing one’s viewpoint at the expense of others; offering only win-lose solutions, usually enforced through a power position to resolve an emergency. Conflict Management. Handling, controlling, and guiding a conflictual situation to achieve a resolution – by team themselves then their boss specially in the social responsibility/ law/ ethics, (Major reasons of conflicts in order: schedules, priorities, resources – then - Technical opinions, Cost, Personalities). Decision Making Model: Problem Definition- Problem Solution Generation- Ideas to Action- Solution Action Planning- Solution Evaluation Planning- Evaluation of the Outcome and Process. Factors that affect the decision style: time constraints, trust, quality, and acceptance.

(Point of Total Assumption: used in the event of cost overrun, is the point at which the seller assumes all additional costs for delivering a product of the project - PTA = ((Ceiling Price -Total Price) / Buyer's Share Ratio)) + Target Cost); the ‘total cost’, ‘estimated cost’, or ‘target cost’ (are synonymous), represents the contracted cost without the profit. Fixed Price with Economic Price Adjustment Contracts (FP-EPA). a special provision allowing for predefined final adjustments to the contract price due to changed conditions, such as inflation, or cost change for specific commodities. Cost-Reimbursable Contract. (2) A type of contract involving payment to the seller for the seller’s actual costs, plus a fee typically representing seller’s profit, this require buyer to audit invoices carefully (Proposal: RFP, risk for buyer).

Procurement Negotiations. clarify the structure, requirements, and other terms of the purchases so that mutual agreement can be reached prior to signing the contract. Final contract language reflects all agreements reached (in order: performance, scope, schedule, price). You may refer to any of these tactics: • Fait Accompli - Standard contract terms that are nonnegotiable. (In reality, anything in the contract is negotiable although your adversary will never admit it). • Deadline - Make it clear that this is the time by which they must do. As the deadline approaches, increase the emotional pressure, talking more about what will happen if the deadline is missed. • Good guy /bad guy - One person acts in an aggressive and pushy way, making unreasonable demands and requiring compliance. The other person acts in kind and friendly, asking nicely - and getting compliance. • Missing man - The person who can actually make the decision is missing from the negotiation. The negotiator can then negotiate for a lower price or more favorable terms which they claim they can agree to. • Limited authority - Refusing to give in on items because you have not been given authority to do what is being requested. • Fair and reasonable - You can engage the other person by asking them 'what is fair'. You can also bring something into the negotiation that is, by definition, fair. You can also reject criteria from the adversary on the grounds that it is not fair. • Unreasonable - Stating that the other side is making unreasonable demands of you in the negotiation. • Delay - Stretching out the negotiation, especially at critical moments. • Attack - A direct attack on your integrity, trustworthiness, competence, or other such bullying bombast designed to force compliance out of you.
