Sales Negotiating Gambits - Use Bracketing Technique during Early Negotiation Stage.

In negotiation, If you're asking for more than you expect to get, how much more than you expect to get should you ask for? The answer is that you should bracket your objective. Your initial proposal should be an equal distance on the other side of your objective as their proposal.

Let me give you a simple example of that. The buyer is offering you $1.60 for your widgets. You can live with $1.70. Bracketing tells you that you should start at $1.80. Then if you end up in the middle, you'll still make your objective. Of course it's not always true that you'll end up in the middle, but that is a good assumption to make if you don't have anything to go on. Assume that you'll end up in the middle, mid-way between the two opening negotiating positions. If you track that, you will be amazed how often it happens—in little things and in big things.

In little things. Your son comes to you and says he needs $20 for a fishing trip he's going to take this weekend. You say, "No way! I'm not going to give you $20. Do you realize that when I was your age I got 50 cents a week allowance, and I had to work for that? I'll give you $10 and not a penny more." Your son says, "I can't do it for $10!"
Now you have established the negotiating range. He's asking for $20. You're willing to pay $10. See how often you end up at $15! In our culture, splitting the difference always seems fair.

In big things. In 1982, Treasury Secretary Donald Regan and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Paul Volcker were negotiating the pay off of a huge international loan with the government of Mexico. Mexico was about to default on an $82-billion dollar loan. Their chief negotiator was Jesus Herzog, their finance minister. In a creative solution, they agreed to contribute huge amounts of petroleum to our strategic petroleum reserve. However, that didn't settle it all. We proposed to the Mexicans that they pay us a $100-million dollar negotiating fee, which was a politically acceptable way for them to pay us accrued interest. When President Lopez Portillo heard what we were asking for, he went ballistic. He said the equivalent of: You tell Ronald Reagan to drop dead. We're not paying the United States a negotiating fee. Not one peso! Nada!

So, here we have the negotiating range established. We're asking for $100 million dollars. They're offering zero. Guess what they ended up paying us? That's right. Fifty million dollars. Often, in little things and in big things, we end up splitting the difference.

Bracketing assumes one thing: that you can get the other side to state his or her position first. If buyers get you to state your position first, they can bracket you so that if you end up splitting the difference, as so often happens, the buyers end up getting what they want. That's an underlying principle of negotiating. Get the other side to state a position first. This is necessary so that you can bracket that proposal.
Don't let the other side trick you into committing first. If the status quo is fine with you, and there is no pressure on you to make a move, be bold enough to say to the other side, "You're the one who approached me. The way things are satisfies me. If you want to do this, you'll have to make a proposal to me."

After your buyer states a position, you can bracket your position on the high side of your objective—it's best to do this with implied flexibility. Your price may be high but when you indicate a willingness to negotiate, the buyer has a tendency to think, "It sounds as though we can get her down from that. Why don't I spend some time and see if I can get her down to a lower price than I'm paying now." It's a good way to get the negotiations started.

Key points to remember
 Bracket a proposal so that if you end up splitting the difference, you still get what you want.
 You can only bracket if you get the buyer to state his or her position first.
 Continue bracketing as you zero in on your objective with concessions.

12 Modes of IT Outsourcing. Value-added Outsourcing. Co-sourcing. Business Process Outsourcing. Shared Services. Offshore Outsourcing . Joint Venture

Modes of outsourcing
There are many sourcing options now available. It is useful at this point to spell out the major ones, and make some comment on their track record. Be aware that while some practices have better track records than others, much depends on the quality of risk mitigation and management practices put in place to run them. Selective outsourcing tends to be the lower risk option, while total outsourcing (80% or more of the IT budget with the market) is really best done by an organization that has matured its ability to manage large-scale outsourcing. Twelve options are now discussed that can be used selectively, or as part of a total outsourcing deal:

1. Transitional outsourcing – handing over legacy systems to enable in-house focus on building the new IT world. Generally an effective, low risk use of the market.

2. Value-added outsourcing – combining client and vendor strengths in order to market IT products or services commercially. Nice, logical idea, but in practice such components of a larger IT outsourcing deal have been too small too attract priority attention. Moreover, implementation looks a lot less attractive when it is realized that it requires nine times the initial development costs to commercialize a product/service, and there are no guaranteed paybacks in a competitive market.

3. Equity holdings – has a mixed record.

4. ‘Co-sourcing’ – a term coined by EDS whereby the supplier takes over an activity, or works with a client on it, and gets paid for improvements in the client’s business results. Again a mixed record because many factors can affect supplier performance that may well be out of its control; also, suppliers’ cultures have not always been set up to work in this way.

5. Multiple suppliers – the preferred option by most client organizations. It follows a ‘horses for courses’, ‘best-of-breed’ logic and spreads risk. At the same time there are additional transaction and management cost incurred by taking the multiple supplier route. Probably needs each supplier to be managed individually, as companies like BP Exploration and Dupont have not always found suppliers managing each other the most productive arrangement.

6. Spin-offs – creating a separate company out of an effective IT function, and allowing it to sell its services on the open market, as well as back to the original host company. EDS grew out of General Motors in this way. With a Dutch software house, Philips created Origin that proved fairly successful during the 1990s. The general record is not a good one, however. It takes a lot of new marketing, customer-focused and financial skills to commercialize an IT department, and the market is very competitive indeed for those with no previous track record.

7. Application service provision/‘netsourcing’ – renting applications, services and infrastructure over networks. Web services are the potential means to an expansion in this market, although its development was put on hold during the recession beginning in late 2000. Once the technology is sorted out, and suppliers can find a winning business model that will attract customers on an upswing in the economy, or can find ways of cutting customer costs dramatically and reliably, we anticipate this is a real one to watch for the medium-term future.

8. Business process outsourcing – in cost-pressured economies, a fast-growing market in 2002/3 because of the latent cost reductions inherent in streamlining indifferently managed back-offices and business processes and applying IT to the result. However, the market is still developing, with some good niche players and start-ups, but no one supplier yet looks able to service all a customer’s business process needs. Beware of supplier claims here, since many have been all too quick to jump into a potential growth area in an otherwise weak IT climate. Check that the marketing is matched by capabilities.

9. Backsourcing – bringing aspects of IT back in-house after originally outsourcing them. Thus Lend Lease Corporation brought back aspects of systems development several years into a long-term deal with IBM Global Services. East Midlands Electricity actually cancelled its 1992 12-year deal with Perot Systems in 1999, taking advantage of a clause permitting cancellation in the event of a merger (it merged with Powergen that year). From 1995 it had redefined the importance of IT to the business and began re-building its in-house skills. More often there is a steady creep back, as a result of changing requirements and contexts, or from a realization that the activity was in fact better positioned in-house all along.

10. Shared services – for example in accounting services or e-procurement exchanges. Here, several customers identify a non-competitive area worth outsourcing together to the same supplier. Thus, seven oil companies outsourced accounting administration to Accenture, based in Aberdeen, Scotland. The aim here is to achieve significant cost reductions through economies of scale.

11. Offshore outsourcing – sometimes billed as ‘cheaper, quicker, better’, suppliers in this market have been moving aggressively, with India cornering over 80% of the revenues by 2002, but with Russia and China, amongst others, beginning to position themselves to take more of the market. Initially focused on programming and low-level technical activity in which offshore economies had a significant labour cost advantage, the bigger players show an ability to move up the IT value chain quickly, including developing high quality technical skills bases. Management and transaction costs can be higher with this form of outsourcing, however. Some companies have already established ‘nearshore’ operations in customer countries, while some IT suppliers and customers have themselves established facilities in developing economies. Definitely one to watch and think about.

12. Joint venture – client and supplier establishing a third entity through which to resource and share risks and rewards. As one example, FI Group and the Royal Bank of Scotland established the jointly owned First Banking Systems in 1999. It was given a budget of £150 million over five years to develop commercial software and manage IT planning and architecture. It was actually terminated in 2002. In 2001/2 in the business process outsourcing market Xchanging took a modified model and created four enterprises with three clients to commercialize their back offices. Our own studies of these show an effective set of results over the first two years of operation.

Demonstrating and Documenting Superior Value with Customer Value Management.

Customer Value Management
To combat price concessions and commoditization pressures, companies have to fundamentally reexamine their philosophy of doing business and how they put it into practice. Business must adopt a philosophy of doing business based on demonstrated and documented superior value and implement that philosophy using an approach we call customer value management. Customer value management is a progressive, practical approach to business markets that, in its essence, has two basic goals:
1. Deliver superior value to targeted market segments and customer firms
2. Get an equitable return on the value delivered

Customer value management relies on customer value assessment to gain an understanding of customer requirements and preferences and what fulfilling those are worth in monetary terms. Although firms may be able to accomplish the first goal without any systematic assessment of customer value, it is unlikely that they will be able to accomplish the second goal without it. Simply put, to gain an equitable or fair return on the value their offerings deliver, business must be able to persuasively demonstrate and document the superior value they provide customers relative to the next-best alternative.

Demonstrating and Documenting Superior Value
Increasingly, to get an equitable or fair return, business must be able to persuasively demonstrate and document the superior value their offerings deliver to customers. By “demonstrate,” we mean showing prospective customers convincingly beforehand what cost savings or added value they can expect from using the supplier’s offering relative to the next-best alternative. Value case histories are written accounts that document the cost savings or added value that reference customers have received from using a business’s market offering. Another way that best-practice firms, such as GE Infrastructure Water & Process Technologies and SKF, demonstrate the value of their offerings to prospective customers is through customer value assessment tools, which we term value calculators. These tools are spreadsheet software applications that salespeople or value specialists conduct on laptops as part of a consultative selling approach to demonstrate the value that customers likely would receive from their offerings.

Business also must document the cost savings and incremental profits that offerings have delivered to customers. Thus, business work with their customers to define the measures on which they will track the cost savings or incremental profit produced and then, after a suitable period of time, work with customer managers to substantiate the results.

Documenting the superior value delivered to customers provides four powerful benefits to suppliers. First, it enhances the credibility of the value demonstrations for their offerings because customer managers know that the supplier is willing to return later to document the value received. Second, documenting enables customer managers to get credit for the cost savings and incremental profit produced. Third, documenting enables business to create value case histories and other materials for use in marketing communications to persuasively convey to prospective customers the value they, too, might obtain from the supplier’s offering. Finally, by comparing the value actually delivered with the value claimed in the demonstration and regressing these differences on customer descriptors, documenting enables business to further refine their understanding of how their offerings deliver the greatest value. This sharpens subsequent efforts to target customers. We term the tools that business use to document the value of their offerings value documenters.

Value Management - A Group Decision-Making Process to Achieve Stakeholders’ Needs and Expectations in the Most Resource-Effective Ways

Key definitions:
 ‘‘ Value has been defined as a ratio between ‘Quality & Cost’, ‘Function & Cost’, ‘Worth & Cost’, ‘Performance & Resources’, ‘Satisfaction of needs & Use of resources’ and ‘Benefits & Investment’. All those ratios and others are acceptable, as long as, on one side, lies the satisfaction of an explicit or implicit need and on the other, the resources invested to achieve it.’’ In the United States and U.S.-influenced countries like English Canada, the Middle East, Japan, the focus is on cost, whereas Europe and countries like Australia, French Canada, and Hong Kong have developed a broader view of resources.

 ‘‘ Value Management (VM) consists of the combined application of value methodologies and other methodologies at organizational level (from strategic to operational) in order to improve organizational effectiveness.’’ (In the U.S.-influence zone it is an umbrella term for VA and VE, whereas in Europe and other countries it is considered a management approach, as described in EN-12973:2000 European Standard).

 ‘‘ Value Analysis (VA) and Value Engineering (VE) are specific value methodologies aimed at improving existing products or developing new products. Products can include both goods and services.’’

 ‘‘ Value Methodologies include all processes, tools and techniques derived from the work of Lawrence Miles. They specifically include the concept of functions and function analysis (and its derivatives), the concept of cross-functional teamwork and the concept of a structured process based on creative thinking (alternative left/right brain use).

Value Management Today: A Style of Management
At a management level, VM is based on three root principles:
1. A focus on objectives and targets: stakeholders’ needs and critical success factors
2. A focus on the function: purpose of the product, system, or service
3. A continuous awareness of value: measures for improvement and innovativeness

There are three key concepts that underlie all value methodologies:
(a) A transverse approach, translated in practice by cross-functional teamwork. The VM methodology is based on a multidisciplinary team approach in a workshop environment; it enables the team to broaden perspective, assess every angle, share opinions, and reach consensus.
(b) A structured decision process leading to better business decisions. The VM process is a systematic approach, based on creative thinking, which uses time in the most efficient way to ensure that the scope of the VM study is covered in the best sequence.
(c) The use of functions, increasing effectiveness and enhancing competitiveness. VM relies on functions, rather than on predefined solutions, to identify the expected outcome of a project, thus allowing evaluation of a broader range of possible options.

The application of VM at the organizational level is a source of competitive advantage. The combined use of a cross-functional group process, the concept of functions and of creative thinking principles combined to foster learning and enhance innovation, creates an undeniable combination of differentiation and implicit knowledge, leading toward competitive advantage.

Organizational decisions are often characterized by a high degree of uncertainty (lack of information), ambiguity (conflicting information), and stress (lack of time). Group decision making (GDM) enhances the ratio of facts versus assumptions, the quality (truthfulness) of information, consensus and objective sharing, and group commitment to decisions (also a relief of stress). VM is a GDM process that through sense-making will reduces ambiguity and enhances quality of information, and builds consensus and buy-in from participants in the process. At the elaboration phase, it uses scope definition, feasibility, and risk management concepts to increase the level of information and reduce uncertainty, as well as the possibility to develop more resource-effective options. If the players are well chosen among the key stakeholders, VM will increase decision support and implementation success through its participative group process.

To be most effective, value management must be linked to strategy, success factors, programs, and prioritization, as well as to change management. VM is a group decision management (GDM) process, which enables groups of stakeholders to make sensible and well-grounded strategic decisions, based on needs; define and prioritize expected benefits; and quantify them. It also enables program managers to select and prioritize projects and other actions, based on the expected benefits that have been defined at a strategic level and the most effective use of resources. Value management, if it is applied at the project gateways and program appraisal phase, becomes a change management methodology that ensures a choice of options directly related to the expected benefits.

VM is the method of choice to deal with the ambiguity of stakeholders’ needs and expectations and the complexity of changing business environment at program level and project initiation. It will bring structure and objectivity to what has often been a highly subjective and intuitive process and provide a framework for decision making throughout the delivery process. The VM process requires involvement of the whole program/project team, at different levels and times, but to be effective, decision makers—with authority over resources—must be involved at all stages of the process.

Define Right Market Segment for your Marketing Plan. The universally accepted criteria for Viable Market Segment.

One of the key aspects of marketing planning is choosing the right customers to focus on. Few companies can successfully be ‘all things to all people’, and it is therefore necessary to define in precise and actionable terms just who are the organization's customers, both now and in the future. Knowing where sales and profits are coming from is key to understanding current market positions and assessing potential market directions.

Market segmentation enables a firm to target its limited resources on the most promising opportunities by sorting customers into economically manageable and ‘prioritizable’ groups. Segmentation can be based on a myriad of criteria regarding customer characteristics and buying behaviour, thus covering the critical issues of ‘who buys’, ‘what they buy’ and ‘why they buy’. The bases for market segmentation are summarized as follows:

1) What is bought
Price categories, outlets used, physical characteristics of different products. Analysis of product and purchase characteristics clarifies market structure and market mechanics.
2) Who buys
Demographic/socio-economic/geographic/cultural factors. Analysis of customer attributes aids communication programme design.
3) Why
Benefits, attitudes/beliefs, personality/lifestyle. Analysis of customer behaviour underpins marketing strategy.

A market segment is a group of customers with similar requirements which can be satisfied by a distinct marketing mix.

A market segment should be a group of customers with the same or similar requirements, which can be satisfied by a distinct marketing mix. The universally accepted criteria concerning what constitutes a viable market segment are:
 segments should be of an adequate size to provide the organization with the desired return for its effort;
 members of each segment should have a high degree of similarity in their requirements, yet be distinct from the rest of the market.
 criteria for describing segments must be relevant to the purchase situation;
 segments must be reachable.

To be useful for segmentation, a benefit has to appeal to a significant number of customers. Benefit analysis, or the listing of features of major products together with what they mean to the customer, is a way of identifying which are the most important benefits to which customers. To get from a feature to an advantage, and then to a benefit, the phrases ‘which means that?’ and ‘so what?’ can be helpful. For example, ‘Our products are handmade by experts (feature), which means that they are better quality than machine-made ones’ (advantage) — so what? — ‘which means that they last longer’ (the real benefit).

Five Different Traits and Mindsets for Investors. Understand Why You Act and React the Way You Do.

Do You Know Your Mindset?—Why You Act and React the Way You Do

Mindset: The Decision-Maker/Problem-Solver
You are a calculated risk taker. You focus solely on the bottom line, measured in results. You care only about the results and will base your success on those results. You are decisive, extremely competitive, and usually harbor a great deal of anger that comes out in bursts when you are frustrated (you have the highest propensity for taking it out on colleagues, assistants, and clients). You have a tendency to make decisions based on fewer data points than other
mindsets require. You tend to have little patience, are quick to make decisions—typically, quicker than most; that’s what makes you successful. You may have an extremely difficult time working with others who think slowly or act slowly. It drives you crazy. You tend to be perceived as being arrogant, but are not necessarily that way. You may tend to blame others for your mistakes.

Mindset: The Catalyst
If you are a Catalyst, you tend to create energy in the office and among clients. You are often an effective change agent. You have the tendency to be open to new experiences and take risks. You may often demonstrate eccentric behaviors and interests and may be capable of producing out-of-the-box solutions. Your preference for creative abstract thinking may cause problems for more conventional clients, and for your colleagues and manager.
Your conscientiousness is moderate as you respond to external pressure and may be quite motivated when you have an opportunity to influence others. Catalysts tend to be extroverts and can be viewed as dynamic, even magnetic, and are usually friendly and socially driven. Catalysts have a tendency to be overly agreeable. While you are enthusiastic and optimistic about your own ideas, you may sometimes appear as superficial and political. Also displaying a tendency toward being a social butterfly, you quickly retreat if you perceive that others may challenge or threaten you. When your expectations don’t match up with reality, however, you are more at risk than any other mindset for experiencing behavioral paralysis. The inclination to be overly optimistic about your abilities can set you up for emotional upheaval if you experience a minor setback. Charlie Sheen’s character, Bud Fox, in the movie, Wall Street, was a catalyst … aggressive and competitive, but he also was a dreamer.

Mindset: The Voice of Reason
As the Voice of Reason, you tend to be reliable, steady, and make thoughtful decisions. You may not get rattled easily, and will stick to the rules, so you rarely have compliance problems. You may be slow to offer trust, however, and it is only developed after careful consideration and you insist that others must prove over and again that they are trustworthy. In essence, the Voice of Reason has a great deal of the Catalyst and the Decision-Maker/Problem-Solver running through his veins. It is the happy medium between the other two mindsets.
Unfortunately, you tend to mask your emotions, you don’t let people in easily, and you don’t readily show them who you are. Others can be put off by you, and your colleagues will actually think you are not interested in them. This can be a big problem for you, especially when dealing with your manager.
You are inclined to be unusually conservative with clients’ money because you are generally not a risk taker. You are not flashy and you don’t like much social interaction or partying. You work by the book, you are respected, and are a very controlled individual. You are perceived as a polished individual who doesn’t rock the boat. Clients tend to be as conservative as you are. Conflict with clients tends to rattle you more than it does for other mindsets. You will likely not communicate your dissatisfaction with a conflictual office situation and this leads to more problems for you later.

Mindset: The Contrarian
Contrarians have the inclination to go against trends, don’t care about being tactful, and don’t care what people think about them. If you are a Contrarian, you may come across as extremely arrogant and intellectually elitist. You probably are a complete renegade, many are atheists, and some people consider your behavior to be a bit bizarre or humorous.
You, like the Voice of Reason, tend not to be a sociable person and are particularly awkward in a social setting. You may treat others at work as if they are a means to an end, and this remains your work persona. You may be more emotional and sensitive in your personal life, but you may have a tendency to discount others’ feelings in the business setting. Most times, you do not have the skills to look outside of yourself because you tend to be in your own world.
Contrarians don’t often take the time to think about what others are feeling or thinking. It’s not that they don’t care; they are just not aware. You are like the Lone Wolf and you say to yourself, “No one is going to tell me what to do. I’m doing my own thing, regardless of what anyone else is doing.” You are rebellious.
You may tend to dress in a quirky fashion and are eccentric in your investment styles as well. You have the potential of being extremely successful, like many innovative entrepreneurs are. The Contrarians are rare birds. About 5 percent of the audiences we speak to claim to be Contrarians.

Mindset: The Perfectionist/Facts and Details
Individuals who are the Perfectionist/Facts and Details type would make great compliance officers. They tend to be analytical thinkers and will run their practice by the book. Most abhor taking risks and, thus, do not make very good entrepreneurs on their own. They are generally the type who will remain at a large brokerage firm and not attempt to go independent even if it meant making more money, having more control, and enjoying more freedom. If you are this type of advisor, you are a great analyst, perhaps a great financial planner.
Typically, you are orderly, neat, quiet, and perfectionistic. You will make sound research decisions, don’t like risk, and are completely averse to it. You may require many data points before feeling comfortable in making a decision about a trade. Having a lot of internal anxiety, you can be driven by obsessional thoughts. You need things in order.
Some of the troublesome aspects of being a Perfectionist/Facts and Details person is that you tend not to think out of the box enough, are not as creative in your marketing methods, and almost never ask for referrals. Since you need to be in control of all things, you may be in a lot of trouble in a world that is filled with uncertainty, and especially in the markets. Conflicts with colleagues, managers, or clients can make you feel overwhelmed. You are inclined to avoid conflict at all costs and have trouble communicating your feelings in an assertive manner. As an introvert, you will likely repress anger or frustration with a colleague or client. This can later end up with you burning out. You entered this uncertain business because you love numbers. Math is comfortable and safe, whereas selling and servicing clients creates stress for you.
