Changing negotiators

A tactic sometimes used when the negotiation is not going the way the other party would like.

The new negotiator often denies knowledge of concessions their company has made or claims the previous negotiator had no mandate to make them. At the same time, you are held to the concessions you have made.

Tip for the negotiator: Counter this by either insisting that previous agreements are honoured or by starting negotiations again from scratch. In some circumstances, it may be in your interests to also change negotiators.
