The consensus building handbook : a comprehensive guide to reaching agreement by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
10 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 566 libraries worldwide
Whether you work in the corporate world, a nonprofit organization, or the government sector, you likely face the need to work with others to solve problems and make decisions on a daily basis. And you've undoubtedly been frustrated by how laborious and conflict-ridden such group efforts can be. At all levels--from neighborhood block associations to boards of directors of multinational corporations--the consensus building process is highly effective in an increasingly fragmented, contentious society. In addition, the old top-down methods such as Robert's Rules of Orders often prompt more problems then they solve. Consensus helps you to implement better, more creative solutions. It provides a winning alternative to top-down decision making--and even parliamentary procedure. By learning to build consensus, stakeholders come to understand and respect one another's perspectives. The consensus building process allows participants to find solutions and forge agreements that meet everyone's needs--and provides a meaningful basis for effective, long-range implementation of decisions. The Consensus Building Handbook provides a blueprint to help make the process work in your organization, including a practical, quick-reference Short Guide. Plus, you'll find in-depth commentary and seventeen case studies with in-depth commentaries to provide the theoretical basis for this approach. --From publisher's description
Breaking Robert's rules : the new way to run your meeting, build consensus, and get results by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 512 libraries worldwide
Every day in communities across America hundreds of committees, boards, church groups, and social clubs hold meetings where they spend their time engaged in shouting matches and acrimonious debate. Whether they are aware of it or not, the procedures that most such groups rely on to reach decisions were first laid out as Robert's Rules more than 150 years ago by an officer in the U.S. Army's Corps of Engineers. Its arcane rituals of parliamentary procedure and majority rule usually produce a victorious majority and a very dissatisfied minority that expects to raise its concerns, again, at the next possible meeting. This book clearly spells out how any group can work together effectively. After briefly explaining the problems created by Robert's rules, the guide outlines the five key steps toward consensus building, and addresses the specific problems that often get in the way of a group's progress. Appendices include a basic one page "handy guide" that can be distributed at meetings and a case study demonstrating how the ideas presented in the book can also be applied in a corporate context. Written in a non-technical and engaging style, and containing clear ideas and instructions that anyone can understand and use, this one-of-a-kind guide will prove an essential tool for any group desperate to find ways of making their meetings more effective. In addition, neighborhood associations, ad hoc committees, social clubs, and other informal groups lacking a clear hierarchy will find solid advice on how to move forward without resorting to "majority rules" or bickering over who will take leadership positions. This book will change the way you hold meetings forever, paving the way for efficiency, efficacy, and peaceful decision making
Better environmental policy studies : how to design and conduct more effective analysis by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 495 libraries worldwide
Environmental policy studies commissioned by government agencies or other stakeholders can play a vital role in environmental decisionmaking; they provide much-needed insight into policy options and specific recommendations for action. But the results of even the most rigorous studies are frequently misappropriated or misunderstood and are as likely to confuse an issue as they are to clarify it. Better environmental policy studies explores this problem, as it considers the shortcomings of current approaches to policy studies and presents a pragmatic new approach to the subject. Reviewing five cases that are widely regarded as the most effective policy studies to have been conducted in the United States in the last few decades, the authors present a comprehensive guide to the concepts and methods required for conducting effective policy studies
Negotiating environmental agreements : how to avoid escalating confrontation, needless costs, and unnecessary litigation by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 441 libraries worldwide
The mutual gains approach is a proven method of producing fairer, more stable, and wiser results in environmental, health, and safety negotiations. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to this approach to environmental regulation
Negotiating on behalf of others : advice to lawyers, business executives, sports agents, diplomats, politicians, and everybody else by Pacey C Foster( Book )
11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 429 libraries worldwide
"Most negotiation theory assumes direct interaction between two principals. Negotiating on Behalf of Others challenges this view and suggests that because most people negotiate on behalf of others, a radical shift is required in the way we think about (and conduct) negotiations. It offers a framework for understanding the complexity and effects of negotiating on behalf of others and explores how current negotiation theory can be modified to account for negotiation agents. Negotiation agents are broadly defined to include legislators, diplomats, salespersons, sports agents, attorneys and committee chairs - anyone who represents others in a negotiation."--Jacket
Paternalism, conflict, and coproduction : learning from citizen action and citizen participation in Western Europe by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
12 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
A research team from the United States has completed an examination of citizen participation experiments in seven European countries. The team included Donald Appleyard, Marc Draisen, David Godschalk, Chester Hartman, Janice Perlman, Hans Spiegel, John Zeisel, and ourselves. This book is a product of our joint efforts. Our studies are aimed at summarizing and sharing what can be learned from recent European efforts to enhance the effectiveness of local government through increased public involvement in the organization and management of public services and urban redevelopment. Almost a year was spent assembling the team, developing a shared framework for analysis and identifying appropriate case study cities. European and American public officials and citizen activists helped us assess the potential impact of such a study on current practice. A second year was spent visiting the European cities and preparing the case-study drafts. Finally, team members gathered in Washington, D.C., with fifty American and European public officials, citizen activists, and scholars. A two-day symposium provided an exciting opportunity to present preliminary research findings and encourage an exchange of ideas between researchers, activists, and policymakers. The final versions of the case studies that appear in this book, along with several commentaries by symposium participants, are written especially for city officials and citizen activists. We have tried to translate the results of our scholarly inquiry into pragmatic suggestions for officials and activists

Good for you, great for me : finding the trading zone and winning at win-win negotiation by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 232 libraries worldwide
To return to an earlier era before "win-win" negotiation was in fashion and seek simply to dominate or bully opponents into submission would be a step in the wrong direction--and a public relations disaster. By showing how to win at win-win negotiating, Lawrence Susskind provides the operational advice you need to satisfy the interests of your back table--the people to whom you report. He also shows you how to deal with irrational people, whose vocabulary seems limited to "no," or with the proverbial 900-pound gorilla. He explains how to find trades that create much more value than either you or your opponent thought possible. His brilliant concept of "the trading zone"--The space where you can create deals that are "good for them but great for you," while still maintaining trust and keeping relationships intact--is a fresh way to re-think your approach to negotiating. The outcome is often the best of both possible worlds: You claim a disproportionate share of the value you've created while your opponents still look good to the people to whom they report. Whether the venue is business, a family dispute, international relations, or a tradeoff that has to be made between the environment and jobs, Susskind provides a breakthrough in how to both think about, and engage in, productive negotiations

Olson Mechanical and Heavy Rigging, Inc. by Lawrence Susskind( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
In November of 1987, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District, and Olson Mechanical and Heavy Rigging, Inc. reached a $57,000 settlement, on an original claim of $185,000 ($224,000 including interest), with the use of a non-binding arbitration panel. The claim arose from a contract to reconstruct a fish ladder at the Dalles Lock and Dam during which Olson claimed differing site conditions based on an increased amount of water and ice in the project work area. The main points illustrated by this case are: (1) ADR use at the district level; (2) ways to win technical staff support for ADR; (3) The dynamics of a three-member arbitration panel; and (4) the need for a precedent regarding ADR and the Equal Access to Justice Act
Water diplomacy : a negotiated approach to managing complex water networks by Shafiqul Islam( Book )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 108 libraries worldwide
Water is the resource that will determine the wealth, welfare, and stability of many countries in the twenty-first century. This book offers a new approach to managing water that will overcome the conflicts that emerge when the interactions among natural, societal, and political forces are overlooked. At the heart of these conflicts are complex water networks. In managing them, science alone is insufficient and so is policy-making that doesn't take science into account. Solutions will only emerge if a negotiated or diplomatic approach that blends science, policy, and politics is used
