The Real Deal eBook

For the last 40 years Scotwork have been examining one method by which we steer our way through inevitable conflicts, the art and skill of negotiation. Negotiation can help oil the wheels of life by recognising our differences and find a path by which we can get more of what we want.

For the last 3 years we have been blogging our musings on the issues of the day, the ones that have captured our imaginations and the ones that we feel could benefit from that art of negotiation. If you like we have taken real situations and thought through the options that may make a deal possible, or even just more likely. We have put these situations under the negotiators microscope.

They are accessible to all, but make more sense to the trained mind. Talk to us if you would like to become more aware of and better at doing this stuff yourself.

Opening Statement

So what exactly happened yesterday in the House of Commons during the Prime Minister’s Brexit statement to the House of Commoms on 29 March? People have either congratulated Theresa May or derided her along predictable lines, but I maintain that what was actually happening was that the UK delivered its opening statement for the upcoming and tortuous two-year negotiation with the EU. Forget the 9 months leading up to this opening statement. Forget the salvoes and the posturing. Forget the talk about “hard Brexit” and partnerships and access to the open market. Forget them all. Yesterday in parliament is where the negotiation proper started. The prime minister stood at the dispatch box and laid out the UK’s position. She outlined her long-term aims for the negotiations - the targets towards which she expects her negotiating teams to aim.
