Creation of a company-wide negotiation or conflict management network and suite of supporting materials

This requires working with multiple levels of a company and providing diverse skills to people in different roles, as well as establishing an internal network where these issues can be discussed and advice, materials and tools can be available to help people at different stages of the process of negotiation and the handling of conflict.
