REPORT TITLE, OVERVIEW AND GUIDE

‘The evolution of selling and negotiation’
Impacts of both enforced techniques from industry/theorists and also consumer demand for change.

The report title allows you the freedom to develop your own train of thought in devising an individual, creative journey

Consider changes to sales and negotiation techniques from 1920 to 2000. You should NOT ATTEMPT to write a timeline of all techniques. Instead, after wider reading consider key impacts of change

For example you may wish to give a brief overview of 1920 to 1960, and then focus on the latter part of the century for deeper investigations. In contrast to that, you may wish to research into the initial developments of selling and negotiation, and then only highlight the impacts of this upon later developments

Your report should create an argument of some form

For example you may wish to consider usefulness of techniques, comparing and contrasting usefulness to others? or argue that enforced techniques actually hindered sales opportunities in the past and that had consumer opinions been considered, then better methods could have been incorporated/adapted sooner?

(These examples are for guidance only… Take your own journey!)
