Interest Based Bargaining Legos

IBB is a collaborative approach to collective bargaining. Training in IBB is designed to provide negotiating teams with tools and techniques to improve communication and develop collaboration between the parties to obtain the best possible outcome in negotiations. During this joint training, the parties will learn the steps of interest based bargaining, practice techniques and use the IBB process. The program begins with training in the skills and techniques used in the IBB process. The training may continue with PERC trainers facilitating the initial negotiation sessions where the parties use IBB to develop ground rules and work through the issues in bargaining. Training can be tailored to fit the needs of the bargaining teams.
