Scenario(Task 2)

A major bank, which has its headquarters in the City of London, submitted a request for proposal (RFP) for a company to run their coffee shop. To help with their image they prefer to contract a small independent company as opposed to a national chain. You are a small business owner of Cuisine Coffee, a new start-up looking to expand, and see this as an ideal opportunity.

This is formal negotiation process and therefore you have to prepare a formal RFP on behalf of the bank.

Next – you will need to submit a completed Response to RFP - on behalf of Cuisine Coffee - before you are invited to pitch to the panel. Both documents should be submitted to Turnitin.

When your proposal has been submitted, you will need to prepare a short 5-minute pitch, record it for submission to the panel and submit it (submission instructions to be provided).

The bank will want to negotiate the terms of the contract with you. Therefore, you will need to enter into a negotiation with the panel, using a variety of techniques, to get them to agree to sign the contract.

The students in your group will be split to two groups, acting respectively on behalf of the Bank and Cuisine Coffee. The negotiations will take place in a classroom; every student should take a part in the negotiations. The negotiations will be recorded and the recording will be submitted (submission instructions to be provided).

Next – You have to submit a short report where you evaluate the pitch and negotiation process by analysing it from the early stages to the contracting/drafting stage. Reflect on your own performance in the pitching/negotiating process. The Report is to be submitted to Turnitin.

This provides evidence for LO3 and LO4

Word count: 2000 – 2500 words for all Task 2 documents (you will not be penalised for exceeding the total word limit)
