The next stage is problem solving, Hereboth the parties should collect the required information. This is also know as Bargaining stage.
For example, if all the parties ends up without a single point conclusion then there will be a lose and the result will be worst which is not a proper negotiation. When we reach to a point where all the parties agree, then the result achieved will be in profits for all the parties. Thus having proper information leads toa correct process of negotiation which in turn a good problem solver.The final phase of negotiation is the resolution. This will be completed when all the parties agree and come to a single point conclusion and the that would be implemented accordingly.
Therefore all the parties involved in the negotiation process will expect the final results and are on the same point of conclusion.At the end of this process, all the contracts and the stages of the negotiation should be signed so that they can be tracked easily when needed.
