The purpose of choosing this case study is based on the fact that in many life situations one is always a student of the situation requiring analysis of the other players’ personal agenda, negotiations tactics, priorities, hidden motives, values, ethics, degree of risk taking and prejudices. As a student of such, our degree of success is highly dependent on our ability to observe, process and understand these dynamics in order to adjust our negotiations approach to “get what we want” in that situation.
Therefore, as practice relating to the above, it is required that you submit a paper on the subject of the following:
12 Angry Men, 1957 Movie, with Henry Fonda, dealing with a 12 person jury charged with deciding the guilt or innocence of a young man charged with murdering his father.
It is required that you rent, purchase, borrow or obtain this movie and watch it whatever number of times (Note: The movie is posted within the course, itself.) required for you to construct a paper that responds to the following requirements. In additon, the movie is incorporated into the course content-see the course HOME PAGE:
Page 1 – Cover Title Page
Page 2 – Table of Contents (Including page numbers)
Page 3 – Prepare a Brief list explaination (in sentence form) of the major case issues that need to be considered by the jury for their conclusion.
Pages 4-11 (A minimum of 8-pages): Jury Member No. 8, Character played by Henry Fonda. Address the following four (4) parts in a minimum of eight (8) pages:
Part 1 – How would you describe his negotiations strategy?
Instructions for parts 2, 3, 4 & 5:
There are at least forty (40) Negotiations techniques defined and discussed in the course text.
Therefore, as preparation, in addition to watching and analyzing the above referenced movie, you will need to read and study Reading No.1.5 titled “Effective Negotiating Techniques: From Selecting Strategies to Side-Stepping Impasses and Assumptions” from the Lewicki textbook 7thEdition required for this course (pages 48-64).

Part 2 – The Instructor has elected five (5) required negotiation techniques (SALAMI, REVERSAL, SILENCE, FORBEARNCE, SETTING LIIMITS) from the list above that Juror No. 8 used during this movie. Clearly describe the circumstance where in the movie he used such technique(s) and properly cite when this occurred. Then describe what happened in the movie and the result from its use.
Part 3 – From the remaining thirteen (13) negotiation techniques that the Instructor selected, YOU (the student) are to select five (5) and clearly describe the circumstance where in the movie Juror #8 used such technique(s). Then describe what happened and the result from its use and properly cite when this occurred.

Be certain to use headings for each technique that you chose:
(5a) (Separate sub-heading) For each of these five (5) techniques which you selected, write a detailed explanation of the circumstances of how your use of these techniques could be applied in your personal and business life. (Make sure you have separate headings for each of these five (5) sections) (5b) (Separate sub-heading) For each of the five (5) chosen techniques, write and explain the result you would hope to achieve by use of that technique.(NOTE: Make sure you have separate headings for each of these five (5) Part sections and the required sub-headings)
