About you 

  1. The overall goal is to obtain a lead singer for the opera concert – Bellini’s Norma as the artist, Rita Ringstar, who was previously supposed to act as a lead singer, cannot perform. The next choice for the same is Sally Saporno. 
  2. The issues that are here are the fact that there is a budget that is available to the company and its an urgent situation where it is necessary to cast a singer at the earliest. 
  3. A) The budget is a constraint, the maximum that can be paid to Sally for the role Is 45,000$ that would also be stretching the budget. 
  • B) The second issue is the time constraint; the singer needs to be cased at the earliest possible occasion
  1. The resources and capacities are the amount of money that can be paid to Sally Soprano for the role and apart from the fact that role would bring publicity for Sally and can be used as an occasion for Sally to rise as a star again. 
  2. The next best option in case the deal doesn’t fall through with Sally is to cast the secondary singer in Sally’s role and hope that the secondary singer can perform. 
  3. The resistance point for this is the money; if Sally demands anything more than 45,000$, the deal will fall off. The maximum that can be offered is that. The main negotiation would be the money aspect as Sally is quite willing to perform the role which was gauged from the phone call that was made earlier regarding the availability of the role.

About them 

  1. The overall goal for Sally Soprono’s agent is to get her the best deal that she can out of the negotiation. 
  2. A) The first issue that is important to them is to get the best deal out financially. 
  • B) The second important issue is to ensure that the decreasing publicity for Sally is reduced and she can be brought back to fame. 
  1. The risk preference for each issue is that in case Sally doesn’t sign for this, a chance for her publicity and rise back will decrease. This is a sure shot for her to climb back to fame. The second risk is that she will not be paid enough for the role, so monetary loss. The third is that in case the second lead singer is signed up for it, and she rises to the occasion it would lead to a loss for Sally not only on this project basis but on an industry basis.  The information that can be used can be what other alternatives does she have if not this? 
  2. The resources and capacities that Sally brings to the table is experience, as the show is in 3 weeks because of her experience, she will not take a lot of time in preparing for the show. The second thing that she brings on the table is the fact that she has a loyal fan following, there are people who like her and would pay to watch her. 
  3. The BATNA for them would be Sally looking for other alternatives such as she might join other operas, take secondary roles or indulge in something different. The options available to Sally haven’t been disclosed. 
  4. The resistance point for them would be the point when Sally isn’t being paid enough, or there is an impossibly tight schedule for her performances. 
  5. The target here is for Sally to get the best deal out of this monetarily.
