授業の概要 Course Overview


Business Negotiation -

“NUCB Business School’s mission is to educate innovative and ethical leaders who possess a ‘Frontier Spirit’ and to create knowledge that advances business and society. Our students will have the ability to bridge the gap between New Asia and the rest of the world.”
Given this context, Business Negotiation will enable participants to put negotiations into play through an active learning environment that will promote leadership traits focused on innovation and ethical decision-making by cultivating NUCB's core learning idea about having a "frontier spirit" in the era of sustainability.
Everyday challenges – Whether we realize it or not, many things in life involve some kind of negotiation. This is because we are all on different life timelines and have different priorities and resources, viewing the world differently. Thus, negotiation comes into play in reaching agreement on many things. So, taking away “mystery” of successful negotiation and developing a more systematic approach to the process of negotiation focused on what we really want to achieve must be a good learning goal and a smart career move.

Negotiating well in English – Economic factors are pressuring companies everywhere to look to emerging markets for new growth opportunities, and the universal language of this new world order is shifting rapidly to the new global communication standard, “good enough” English.

So improving/expanding the ability to communicate and negotiate well in English must be a top priority for all business professionals – Especially, the ability to negotiate well in English in cross-cultural and cross-border situations

This basic level cross-border business negotiation course is designed to develop and/or expand this new foundation negotiations requirement for business professionals as a combination of interactive lecture, case discussion (7 cases) and “work-shop” style course.
By the end of the course, students will have improved/expanded their ability to communicate and negotiate well in English – Especially, the ability to negotiate well in English in cross-cultural and cross-border situations - and a lot of the mystery about how to do well in business negotiation will have been removed.

Interactive participant centered learning -

Business Negotiation will utilize a variety of course learning approaches (in English), from interactive lectures/slides on basic negotiation concepts to participant centered learning through case study discussions on negotiations (7 cases), "negotiation individual/team role plays", "short negotiation written exercises" and occasional short negotiation videos from online sources. But this will require that students come to class prepared and ready to participate (in English), as the learning really is "learning-by-doing" - meaning this will not be a lecture (one-way) style course. On the other hand, my expectation is that "good enough" English is all that is required, good enough to understand, and there will be no pressure to have "perfect English" (or perfect grammar, it will not be important). What is important is student willingness to participate, and part of the grade for the course will be based on your participation - although in a big class, I know that might be hard.

Learning by doing –

Business negotiation is structured around a 7-day/Thursday (2 period) format, with the learning focus on individual participation, although there will be learning slides to practically explain how to be effective in negotiations in English to support the skill building process.

The main value of the Business Negotiation (BN) learning will be many chances to participate in case discussions and various negotiation activities in English and get some practical feedback/comments.
A key ongoing course theme will be how to approach the process of negotiation logically and how to understand the best ways to reach the strategic goals, not just good use of English.
The course will proceed methodically from focused aspects and key learning tips of negotiations for simple one-on-one negotiations to integrate the pieces in domestic and cross-cultural team negotiations.

担当教員のプロフィール About the Instructor 


Nigel Denscombe

Overview
Nigel is a new kind of “hybrid” businessperson standing at the intersection of two key roles: global manager/owner and business educator. This is why in 2001 he created a Tokyo/New York firm, Denscombe Corporation (www.denscombe.co.jp), to “bridge” business and education by providing strategic management solutions for repositioning/creating sustainable value propositions for corporate clients and business schools, and also by providing management education solutions for them as well.

On one side, he is a truly globalized Tokyobased BritishAmerican high valueadded management professional with a 30year successful track record of leading positive industry change and finding new value propositions.
At the same time, he is also an accomplished management educator who has created new business schools/repositioned existing ones and who also has taught a wide range of high valueadded management courses for Asian university business schools and corporate clients. In business education, as a management practitioner in the real world, his mission is to put “ business” back into business school and to
foster the global leadership required to take practical advantage of the great changes going on for sustainable corporate value propositions.

Everything Nigel teaches, he does (or has done) in the real world. This gives him a unique learning value proposition because, with his global management track record and wide business education teaching experience, he offers an unparalleled learning experience for all those participating in his management classes.
Before shifting his focus to Asia, Nigel had extensive management/owner experience in North America and Europe, focused on financial services, new business development, innovating markets and new market entry, and corporate strategy, especially restructuring and new value propositions.
