Why do Parties Negotiate?
Negotiations result from actual or perceived conflicts of interest or objectives between two parties. The intent is to better ones current position (further their interests or objectives) by achieving mutual assent with regard to differing perceived interests or objectives.
The parties may desire to: align their actions (or inactions) in support of an interest or objective, or resolve a problem or dispute that exists (or may arise) between the parties by eliminating the point of conflict or difference.
