Objective of assessments

We are committed to your learning by providing a training and assessment framework that ensures the knowledge gained through training is translated into practice in your work in the workplace with consistent and competent work performance. The purpose of the assessment process is to assess your ability:

  • to apply skills and knowledge using written and demonstration activities that apply to tasks and activities of a workplace.
  • to translate your learning into your work performance in a workplace through demonstration.
  • to apply skills and knowledge actively, correctly, and consistently for work in a workplace.

 

The assessment process

The assessment process is known as competency-based assessment. This means that evidence of your current skills and knowledge will be measured against national standards, not against the learning you have undertaken either recently or in the past. Some of the assessment will be concerned with how you apply your skills and knowledge in a workplace, and some in the training room as required by each unit. The assessment tasks have been designed to enable you to demonstrate skills and knowledge application and produce the critical evidence to successfully demonstrate competency at the required standard.

 

Your assessor will ensure that you are ready for assessment and will explain the assessment process.  Your assessment tasks will outline the evidence to be collected and how it will be collected, for example, a written activity, case study, or demonstration and observation. The assessor will also have determined if you have any special needs to be considered during assessment. Changes can be made to the way assessment is undertaken to account for special needs and this is called making Reasonable Adjustment provided to you in the assessment guide separately.

 

 

 

Assessment guide

Your assessment guide that is provided to you will explain the following. Please refer to assessment guide for the following information before commencing your written work and demonstration:

  1. Your responsibilities during the assessment.

Asking specific and good questions Good questions when placed inappropriate parts of conversation can immensely affect the negotiation. Finding win-win situation Discovering the negotiation point is very important as it should not be much low or much higher but just slightly perfect where both the parties could feel lucrative Sticking to principles When principles of any individual are communicated with more audacity then the credibility of the conversation enhances which enforces the opposite individual to agree to the terms of the speaker Leaving the Ego Behind To achieve good negotiation the speaker has to cross the lines multiple times for achieving good negotiation and hence keeping the ego aside always helps in getting a good deal Being patient Most of the good deals slip off the hands of professionals just because they rush the conversation and do not listen to specific things.

9Identify five conflict resolution techniques.Satisfactory

answer

YesNo
Conflict resolving techniques Clarifying the issue Clarifying the issue appropriately in a detailed manner gives essential insights into the root cause of the issue and possible solutions to it. Finding middle points Finding the appropriate paths to resolution of problems for both parties is the most effective way of resolving the conflict. Advising various solutions In most situations, the conflicts escalate as most of the involved individuals lack the appropriate knowledge of possible solutions thus good advice provides them a direction, and issues are resolved much faster. Involving parties in resolution Talks Bringing the involved parties together often results in a solution to the problem in a much faster way as both the parties present their thoughts directly to each other, making it easy for finding a middle path Speaking out consequences Making the involved parties aware of the consequences of the escalation of the conflict could assist in providing them with a clear idea of how bad things could go and encourage them to find a solution to it.

Meeting 1

 

Plan for negotiation

Needs

To demand higher raise from the management on the grounds of better performance than other employees

 

Purpose and position 

The sole purpose of the negotiation is to feel more valuable to the company as stated that my performance is better than others. The position that I would hold for negotiation would be mediatory as I am strictly demanding the things

 

Authority

Being a valuable employee of the company I hold the utmost authority to negotiate terms with the company for my services.

 

Confidentiality

The information regarding the organization of such meetings and things discussed should be kept private as it could mislead other employees.

 

Information needs for Negotiation

The information on the exact rise in pay of other employees is very essential.

 

Objectives of negotiation

To achieve more raises than the other employees as to feel elevated on the grounds of efforts and hard work.

 

To not feel dejected and be on the same level as others.

 

Supporting arguments

As you stated earlier that I am better than all the other employees with more dedication, hard work world diligence, thus I should not be on the same level as them.

 

I have always given more than others and similar raise would be very demotivating for me to work with the same amount of effort.

 

Needs of stakeholders

The stakeholders need to be aware of the pay raise being implemented.

 

Potential problems 

The managers could point out the lack of funds.

Managers could try to deviate me with other options ns such as tax benefits, insurance, etc.

Managers could deny my good performance standards

The information regarding even the organization of such meetings should be kept private for ensuring proper business practices.

 

Information needs

All the stakeholders need to be aware of the allocated budget and proposed cost.

 

Objective of negotiation

The sole objective of negotiation is to bring down the cost of upgradation to $60,000

 

Another objective is to develop good relations with Hewlett Packard for future business prospects

 

Supporting Arguments

Our company would like to continue the business with you for future aspects as we are planning to expand further

 

The costs you are demanding are way higher and I don’t want to ruin our deal for some thousand bucks.

 

Potential Problems

The internet connectivity could lose and disrupt the meeting

 

My representative at Hewlett Packard might not support my terms.

 

Meeting Role Play

Stakeholders – Coordinator (David), Harry (Hewlett Packard operations Officer), Daniel (My representative who knows Harry)

 

Coordinator – Good morning gentlemen, I hope you all are doing well. As you all are already aware of the objective of this meeting, thus I hope we would understand each other. Thank you

 

Harry – Thank you, David my company is very excited to work with you and we are looking forward to more future developments

 

Daniel – Yes David Harry is right I have closed down more than 20 deals of contracted up-gradation and they never let me down.

 

Harry – Thanks David, I appreciate that.

 

David – Harry as you are aware that we are planning for system upgrading and your company looks well and capable enough for providing good service

 

Harry – Thank you, man I also appreciate the progress your organization has made over the past 5 years.

 

David – Yeah, the thing is that the cost you offered to us of $67,500 for the up-gradation is a bit too high and expensive and disturbing our defined budget thus I think it would be good If we could figure out a middle way for benefit of both of us.

Harry – David the cost is already feasible and lower as we provide the same services at no more than $70,000, but I will try my best to find a resolution.

Daniel – Of course Harry, I think the company of David is going to provide you with a lot of Business and you two would do great together for each other. I request you to put down your final cost

Harry – I can provide you with the up-gradation under $60,000 but that would be with few sacrifices for the current demanded equipment

David – No Harry we can’t compromise on quality.

Harry – No the quality would not be compromised but I think the CPU version you are demanding right now is more demanding and you would not require it for your daily purposes. I assure you that the quality of your work and hardware would not be affected.

David – Are you sure about that, if I find any complications later then I might reject your whole batch of hardware

Harry – Yes David I heard your concern and I assure you that you would not face problems regarding performance.

Daniel – Yes David Harry is right I have closed a lot of deals with him and I have not seen any businesses facing any issues regarding the hardware Harry is proposing to you

David – Okay Harry if that is the case then I am good with it. So can we close the deal on $60,000

Harry – Sure David, I am fine with $60,000

Daniel – Okay guys that’s fantastic. I also agree with the terms.

David – Thank you guys for giving your precious time.

Policies and procedures

Negotiation Policy and Procedures

Purpose

This Negotiation and Execution of Contracts Policy clarifies the procedures, obligations and liabilities applicable to the negotiation and execution of contracts in the name of (organisation). This policy is consistent with the policy entitled “Purchasing and Contracting Regulations” Except for the contracts for which authority is reserved by the Board or designated to the CEO by this Policy Manual, all contracts necessary for the daily operations of each.

Therefore, the following Negotiation and Execution of Contracts Policy defines the circumstances under which individual employees are authorized to negotiate and sign contracts on behalf of (organisation), as well as the process and procedure for reviewing and approving contracts prior to signature.

Policy Statement

Unless specifically excluded from this Policy, all contracts involving (organisation)must be executed in accordance with the terms of this Policy. No person shall sign any contract binding upon the (organisation) unless such individual has been appointed, in writing, as the designee authorised to sign. For purposes of this policy, “contract” shall mean any contract, agreement, memorandum of understanding, memorandum of agreement, letter of intent, or any other instrument which commits the funds, personnel, equipment, property or facilities of (organisation). The policy shall further apply to revenue contracts for which the (organisation) receives funds for providing services, as well as all change orders, modifications, amendments or renewals of any contract.

Procedure

Planning your negotiation

No amount of preparation is too much in approaching complex or high-stakes negotiations. Plan both your approach to the subject under negotiation, and your tone and communication style. In approaching the subject of your negotiations:

  • set your objectives clearly in your own mind (including your minimum acceptable outcome, your anticipated outcome and your ideal outcome)
  • determine what you will do if the negotiation, or a particular outcome, fails
  • determine your needs, the needs of the other party and the reasons behind them
  • list, rank and value your issues (and then consider concessions you might make)
  • analyse the other party (including their objectives and the information they need)
  • conduct research and consult with colleagues and partners
  • rehearse the negotiation
  • write an agenda — discussion topics, participants, location and schedule.

In deciding your communication style, familiarise yourself with successful negotiating strategies. Arm yourself with a calm, confident tone and a set of considered responses and strategies to the tactics you anticipate.

Engaging with the other party during the negotiation

  • Introduce yourself and articulate the agenda. Demonstrate calm confidence.
  • Propose — make your first offer. The other party will also make proposals. You should rarely accept their first offer. Evidence suggests that people who take the first proposal are less satisfied and regret their haste.
  • Check your understanding of the other party´s proposal.
  • Remember your objectives.
  • Discuss concepts and ideas.
  • Consider appropriate compromises, then make and seek concessions.
  • Suggest alternative proposals and listen to offered suggestions.
  • Paraphrase others’ suggestions to clarify and acknowledge proposals.
  • Give and take.

Closing the negotiation

Take a moment to revisit your objectives for the negotiation. Once you feel you are approaching an outcome that is acceptable to you:

  • look for closing signals; for example
    • fading counter-arguments
    • tired body language from the other party
    • negotiating positions converging
  • articulate agreements and concessions already made
  • make ‘closing’ statements; for example
    • ‘That suggestion might work.’
    • ‘Right. Where do I sign?’
  • get agreements in writing as soon as you can
  • follow up promptly on any commitments you have made.
