Celebrating Roger Fisher, author of 'Getting to Yes.'

A giant in the world of negotiating died on Saturday. This Harvard professor was so confident in his negotiating abilities that he flew around, uninvited, to trouble spots and got himself into the middle of the fray, helping negotiate agreements to the world's most contracted disputes.

From hostage crises in Peru and Iran to the Camp David accords, Professor Fisher was a master at resolving conflicts. His best-selling book: Getting to Yes, is a treasure trove of advice for project managers and leaders trying to succeed.

In his obituary was the following quote. Whenever I thought, ‘Someone should do something about this,’ it eased my conscience to learn that Roger was already working on it.”
