Full legal proceedings are expensive, uncertain and time-consuming. Anecdotally, however, most forms of alternative dispute resolution save both cost and time and preserve contractual relationships.
This one-day workshop will look at recent trends in Australia and examine alternative approaches to litigation. It will cover the very nature of a dispute, dispute management, negotiation and conflict resolution.
Considering the various approaches to managing contract disputes and negotiations, you will look at mediation, adjudication, arbitration, negotiation, expert determination, dispute resolution boards and the various matrix models. The workshop will cover the relative strengths and weaknesses of each approach, and when to use each.
Once you’ve completed the workshop, you’ll be able to differentiate between the various types of dispute resolution and know when to use them; identify principle-based negotiation and refine your negotiation skills; interpret the elements and provisions of a contract; recognise the fundamental components of dispute resolution legislation and apply conflict resolution techniques to workplace scenarios.
