Your task is to design a negotiation strategy to deal with the negotiation issues involved with merging these multinational companies.

Using your work from your Week 8 Explore Activity, include the following:

Analyze the benefits that cultural conflicts can bring within a multiparty negotiation.

Explain your approach, identify the tactics that you will use to successfully implement your plan, and explain why the plan is fair to both parties as well.
Use four sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides.
