Welcome to the Air Force Negotiation Center of Excellence (NCE) website. This NCE provides this site to inform you on the art and science of negotiation. Negotiation is a skill you use every day whether as an engagement tool of today's military leaders or as a part of a problem solving process. Skillful negotiation is a proven positive tool for success. For more information on the NCE's proven record of education, training, and research please view our mission brief.
Our goal is to make you successful in current and future negotiations.
You are here for a reason. You may have a problem with a current negotiation. You may be deploying and will be negotiating with coalition and host-nation partners. You may be conducting research on negotiation. You may be working on your education. For whatever reason, the center's job is to assist you.
As an example, if you are looking for resources to help with an ongoing or potential negotiation in the operational environment starts with warrior resources
. This link provides a current guide and checklist on cooperative negotiation strategy. The rest of the website is designed in a similar fashion. If you cannot find the information you are looking for contact us
and we will assist you.
We also have a feedback loop to access our corporate email account. We will respond in a timely manner. We are always asking for critiques of our materials, courseware, and website. Please take a minute to share any stories of how you used negotiation to succeed (or even fail) in your mission.
Good luck - The NCE faculty and staff
