IFE's Negotiation Skills for the International Oil and Gas Industry training course will help you to understand the main drivers of the industry. Negotiation is a constant process - it defines and establishes contractual rights; duties and obligations of parties; it governs the deployment of proprietary technology and processes and guards IP rights. It forms the basis of relationships between multi-cultural stakeholders and serves as a mechanism to resolve conflict and disputes.

Content is well structured and presented. All of the practical negotiations helped to reinforce knowledge and helped learn from others' approach."
