Although we live in a global world and it seems that the way to negotiate is the same between cultures, the truth is that I have verified by experience that the negotiation protocols vary greatly according to culture.

As we attempt to influence or persuade someone we are negotiating. According to that definition, everyone negotiates constantly. We negotiate with our colleagues, managers, spouses, children, and friends. However, negotiation skill levels vary widely, and we often fall back on traditional “positional negotiation”, characterized by extreme positions and a process of offers and counter-offers where only one party is considered as “winning” the negotiation.
Positional negotiation doesn’t embrace the Scrum values of openness, respect, and courage and can alienate us from the people with whom we’re negotiating.
Positional negotiation may work well for one time sale , but has no place in the Scrum team or agile organization.
Successfully implementing agile requires a mastery of many skills.
While there is great focus on technical mastery, crucial skills like listening and negotiation can often be overlooked.
