Abstract or Summary
  • This study examines selected cultural elements of the negotiating environment in seventeen organizations having home or branch offices in the Northwest United States. Conference room and boardroom design, intentional placement of meaningful artifacts, arrangement of seating, and providing of refreshments are compared. Observations and interviews of organizational representatives in nine for-profit American businesses, four foreign for-profit corporations, and four non-profit organizations result in a broad spectrum of institutional recognitions of the socio-cultural importance of intentionally presenting organizational core values through these elements. While this study is too small to produce conclusive evidence, it clearly demonstrates that designing rooms to display core values of corporate culture, placing meaningful artifacts within them, choreographing discussions through intentional seating arrangements and recognizing the cultural value of offering refreshments is not universally recognized. The literature review suggests that such intentional implementation can be beneficial to effective negotiation. The study encourages further research into the value of anthropological awareness in the design and conducting of influential, successful negotiations.
