I’d like to share an article that recently came out in the current issue of Negotiation Journal; an article that reflects, essentially, the main effort of the past two years of professional work.
2014 was, for me, The Year of the MOOC. Most of my time that year was dedicated to creating a Massive Open Online Course entitled Negotiation: Navigating Professional and Personal Interactions. This course was the…Continue

At the latest ABA Section of Dispute Resolution conference in NYC, I participated in a panel trying to envision the future of the field of ADR. Not that I would ordinarily suggest convening groups of prophets in order to say things that will likely seem silly a couple of years later, but the idea here was to grapple with a single proposition: Change is more likely to happen in our field, than not. What might that change look like? And, no matter what it turns out to look like, how can we…Continue

Ore Wars: Prisoners Dilemma simulation game for small group teaching/training
Hi all -
In the past, I’ve shared my Pasta Wars simulation on this blog (available at http://ssrn.com/abstract=2200350), which works best with groups of 12-28 participants. However, teachers and trainers sometimes find themselves working with much smaller groups – and most prisoners dilemma exercises just don’t deliver their full…Continue

Planned Early Dispute Resolution? Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Here's what John Lande has to say about it, after researching corporate approaches and attitudes towards it:

One might assume that using a “planned early dispute resolution” (PEDR) system should be a…Continue

A book chapter I wrote last year, Negotiation via (the New) Email, is to be reprinted in a second leading negotiation textbook – this time, in the upcoming edition of Jay Folberg and Dwight Golann’s Lawyer Negotiation: Theory, Practice, and Law. I’m so glad this topic is starting to find its way into the mainstream of negotiation courses, in business, conflict engagement and legal frameworks (earlier this year, it was reprinted in Roy Lewicki, Bruce Barry and David Saunders’…Continue

For all those of us used to plugging away for ADR, and bemoaning it as an uphill battle, hear this quote of a student explaining why he signed up for my Intro to ADR course:
"In my current position, I see books on dispute resolution on most of the attorneys’ desks."
We wouldn't want to miss noticing that the revolution has happened, when it finally does - do we?
The end of the A in ADR?
