  34. 34. Hypotheses Regarding Negotiations• The more important the issue, the more likely it is that it will be negotiated face-to- face• The more politically sensitive the issue, the more likely it is that it will be negotiated face-to-face• If either negotiator will be personally affected by the outcome, that person may want to conduct the negotiation in person 16-34
  35. 35. Hypotheses Regarding Negotiations• If the topic involves issues of firm sensitivity, such as trade secrets or core competencies, the negotiation is more likely to take place face-to-face• Buyer-supplier relationships will be perceived as more distant, the more online communication and negotiation are used• Less formal planning will occur prior to online negotiations than for those conducted face-to-face 16-35
