Negotiate Like the Big Guys: How Small and Mid-size Companies Can Balance the Power in Dealing with Corporate Giants
Silver Lake Publishing, 1999 - 306 pagini
As the information age has changed the way that companies do business, one consistent theme has emerged: Small companies -- and even individuals -- have to deal with bigger companies more often and more directly than ever. How can a company with one or two principles come to the negotiating table on an even footing with a staff of lawyers, accountants and executives?
