Negotiation is the most effective and least understood process of dispute resolution and can settle conflicts before they escalate into claims which require litigation or other types of third-party intervention. Research and studies from The CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution, an internationally recognized organization devoted to alternative dispute resolution, confirm that effective negotiation is the least expensive form of ADR with a success rate of approximately 90%.

The failure to negotiate successfully can transform a dispute into a claim which requires litigation, resulting in increased costs, harm to business relations and diminished control of the parties themselves over the resolution process. Even when disputes are litigated, only a small percentage actually proceed to trial. The overwhelming majority of all civil actions will eventually settle through some form of negotiation, either directly between the parties or assisted by a mediator. Therefore, it is imperative that any organization understand the negotiation process and its importance as an effective tool in resolving conflicts.
