Tactical Tuesday: Dropping Anchor (aka: Stage Setting)

Posted by Andrew Hupert on Aug 1, 2017 10:04:29 AM

AKA: Stage setting, Ambitious Open, Seizing the agenda

Description: Deliver your ambitious opening offer first, and set the range of all subsequent discussion. Anchoring is useful for establishing a price or value range – and for determining the negotiating agenda.  You must be confident in your opening offer, however, since you can’t raise it later.

Intent: Seize the initiative, influence value, and set the agenda.

Style: Competitive – but can be Collaborative.
