Is the use of Conflict Management Solutions, or ADR as it is also known, not a sign of weakness?
What is the value add or key business benefit that you bring to the negotiating table?
Many organizations find the time and costs invested in the “interest based” process to be highly productive with a short payback period.
Can’t we do this ourselves?
Corporate cultural differences, unforeseen changes to existing business models and the interests of current and new stakeholders are just a few of the issues we have dealt with in the past. The “frustration” level for the various groups and individuals involved can escalate quickly. The ongoing business value of the relationship is often under review with options such as do we walk away or escalate being assessed.
The need for all parties involved in the conflict to “move on” creates the demand for experienced outside support. PRI mediators understand the various business and IT factors that can contribute to a conflict. Our experience and independence enables us to present to the involved parties the opportunity to turn the situation around to “Evolve” into something more productive and less-stressful for all. The ability to move forward quickly often in a matter of days in a more productive manner is the best answer to the question of “can we not do this ourselves?”
