How does your organisation’s negotiation-fitness stack-up? How do you get up to scratch? Do you have the right team, strategy and skills for agreeing your next business-critical deal? Who was the real winner in your last major negotiation? Scotwork’s senior negotiation consultants work with you hand-in-hand to answer these and other vital questions. By sharing insights, shaping strategies and raising skill-levels we instil best-practice business-wide. And make you more competitive.


How effectively does your organisation negotiate? Are you below, on par with or above your industry benchmark? What are you really good at, and where do you fall short? Our diagnostics service tells you how capable you are, and where and how to maximise your negotiation performance.

Take our survey

Find out if your people have what it takes to be strong and successful negotiators. Our 75-question Negotiation Capability Survey collects detailed negotiation-related data from across your business. The results inform a detailed diagnostic report that tells you: 

  • How effectively your people negotiate
  • Common issues that need resolving
  • Gaps in competency or training
  • Priorities for skills development
  • Potential return from investment in negotiation skills
  • How your business benchmarks against others

How do you compare?

Ever wondered how your negotiation capabilities size-up to the competition? Our Negotiation Capability Survey has been completed by a wide range of stakeholders in all kinds of businesses. This allows your results to be benchmarked against similar organisations that share your sector, size and geographical characteristics. Compare your scores with the industry average and the best performers. See where you outstrip your rivals and where you need to catch up. Most critically, understand the skills development and strategies you need to become a more competitive player.

Your negotiation is over. The dust has settled. It’s time to take stock and face reality. But did you clinch the sweetest deal possible? Did you give way too much? Were there more concessions to be won? We assess the strengths and weaknesses of how you reached your deal. So you get better results next time.

Create a negotiation-ready culture

It may be too late to change the outcome, but assessing and learning from your performance will help you succeed in your next big deal. Scotwork gives you an independent and expert perspective of what happened in the negotiating room. By retro-analysing your negotiation process and outcomes stage by stage we highlight what worked well and what didn’t. We spot missed opportunities and show you where a slight change of course could have yielded a much stronger deal for you. We pinpoint precisely how to up your game by honing your approach, technique and skills. And give your people the knowledge and confidence to get more from future deals.

“When it comes to the qualifications we demand of our president, to start with, we need someone who will take the job seriously.” Michelle Obama. Don’t stop reading - this blog is not about Donald Trump. In the run up to the election of a new Labour Party Leader 4 years ago, the four candidates were invited by LBC radio to quiz each other. You can see the questions to Jeremy Corbyn here. There are two points of note. Firstly, when asked if he wants to be Prime Minister he ducks the question several times, instead referring to the ideological changes he wants to make within the Labour Party. Secondly when asked about his qualifications and experience to be leader of a major political party his answer is objectively underwhelming – before being an MP, he says, he had been a local councillor for 10 years. I don’t think it is difficult to relate those answers in 2015 to the current divided state of the Labour Party.
