Contract Negotiations

Wiki

Negotiation is a process involving two or more people with conflicting positions. These people attempt to reach an agreement by modifying their original positions. Usually, it requires bargaining in order to reach an acceptable arrangement. The arrangement, however, should not be seen as a win-lose situation. The solution should be mutually beneficial or, in some instances, mutually unprofitable.

by Alessandro Cervellin

Decision makers typically have a short amount of time to select a candidate who best fits a job position and the One-Page Curriculum Vitae (OPCV) provides a useful tool.

Topic Teasers Vol. 93: Making Historic Errors

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Our school district has decided to raze and rebuild a historic elementary school located on an equally historic access road that was part of the first state highway. Unfortunately, in replacing a sewer line that crossed the road, about 10 feet of the original brick pattern was not reinstalled correctly. Local traffic was rerouted temporarily while the work was done, to the vocal displeasure of the nearby residents (since this three-block access road also funnels traffic from the subdivisions to the main street). What do I do about the pattern at this point?
A. When working with historic venues, leaving the site looking exactly as you found it is of extreme importance. If you don’t repair it on your own, the inspectors from your local Landmark Heritage Preservation Commission (or some similarly named organization) will ask you to redo it. So, do it now.
B. On a road that covers less than two blocks, city laws usually do not require historic artifacts and sites to be preserved. Repaint the middle lines and hope that drivers do not notice. This is preferable to stopping traffic again to redo the brickwork.
C. Ask the product owner what he or she would prefer you do. Since you were not specifically told to reinstall the roadway with exactly the same pattern, it is not your responsibility. If asked to redo it, charge extra for the expenses you incur with your subcontractors.
D. Construction projects never really come out exactly as envisioned in the beginning. Function is what is important, not beauty. If the road is safe and usable to transport students to the school and as an artery for people to enter and exit their neighborhood streets, you have fulfilled your technical and functional responsibilities.
