Abstract:
The Executive Challenge is an experiential exercise in resolving two challenges that executives need to master to become competent leaders. The first is processing and making decisions on complex and delicate issues with limited information. The second is dealing sensitively with other people, including taking and offering accurate feedback. The roleplay pack for groups of 5 is no. 6376; for groups of 6 is no. 6377; for groups of 7 is no. 6378.

Pedagogical Objectives:
The exercise gives students the opportunity to put themselves in executive shoes and practice handling issues and decisions that senior managers deal with on a daily basis. It allows them to practice behavioural observation skills, and giving and receiving feedback. This exercise allows students to: • Sense the pressure executives face balancing multiple demands in limited time. • Reflect and get feedback on their management style; give feedback to others on their styles. • Implement management skills and strategies taught in previous classes. • Experience how they take up management roles in relation to others.

Abstract:
This two-party negotiation is an ideal introductory negotiation role-play to raise issues of assumptions, win-win/win-lose, competition/collaboration, interests/positions, single-/multi-issue, positions/options. Two companies, SuperPharma and PharmaCaring, both want to buy 10,000 rare Oxipouco fruits, which contain different compounds. Students tend to focus on the fruits rather than on the compounds.

Pedagogical Objectives:
1. Win-lose vs. win-win assumptions (or zero-sum vs. positive sum or integrative vs. distributive or competition vs. collaboration) 2. Interests vs. position 3. Single-issue vs. multi-issue negotiations (options) 4. Communication/preparation vs information asymmetry 5. Risk/reward analysis

Keywords:
