While most aware of my bias, I give a five star rating to this modest collection of class notes. Indeed, while the form--commented transparencies--qualifies as humble, while the content could appear as naïve, and while academics constitute his primary audience, Raiffa provides deep, wise, operational insights useful to all people engaged in negotiation--i.e., most of us--throughout the 111 pages that make up these lecture notes.
The key to the originality of this surprisingly homogenous scholarly piece resides with Raiffa deciding to assume the opposite of what most of us would entering a negotiation. Indeed, Raiffa assumes a Full Open and Transparent Exchange (FOTE) of information between the parties taking part in a negotiation. Lifting the veil of secrecy enables Raiffa to pinpoint what often preempts satisfactory negotiation outcomes and to discuss ways and present methodologies that allow the parties engaged in a negotiation to all get better deals. How can we achieve this? By identifying the efficiency frontier and by coming closer to it and, hence, to optimal deals. Most methodologies rely on the ranking and quantification of the respective, relative preferences of the parties in the negotiation.Read more ›
