Scotwork's consultants are true negotiation experts, not just trainers. If you need discreet, professional advice on a critical deal, refinement of strategy, rehearsal for that big meeting or advice on improving your organization’s “deal systems,” they can help. Scotwork's team of negotiation experts can assess the competence of your team and identify strengths and gaps. They can help you refine and improve the way deals are delegated, approved and reported on, and even join you at the table as part of your team.


How effectively does your organization negotiate? Is your team below, on par with or above your industry benchmark? What is your team really good at, and where do they fall short? Our diagnostics service tells you how capable your team is, and where and how to maximize their negotiation performance.

Take our survey

Find out if your people have what it takes to be strong and successful negotiators. Our 75-question Negotiation Capability Survey collects detailed negotiation-related data from across your business. The results inform a detailed diagnostic report that tells you: 

  • How effectively your people negotiate
  • Common issues that need resolving
  • Gaps in competency or training
  • Priorities for skills development
  • Potential return from investment in negotiation skills
  • How your business benchmarks against others

How does your team compare?

Ever wondered how your team's negotiation capabilities size-up to the competition? Our Negotiation Capability Survey has been completed by a wide range of stakeholders in all kinds of businesses. This allows your results to be bench-marked against similar organizations that share your sector, size and geographical characteristics. Compare your team's scores with the industry average and the best performers. See where your team outstrips your rivals and where they need to catch up. Most critically, understand the skills development and strategies your team needs to become more competitive players.
