Clarifying BATNA, MLATNA, WATNA, ZOPA and More

In an earlier episode, we established that there is widespread confusion about what the heck is the difference between a BATNA and MLATNA.

I created this table for my negotiation class illustrating the relationships between WATNA, MLATNA, BATNA, bottom lines, and ZOPA.  It is based on a simulation of a simple personal injury case. Hopefully this will make it easier to understand the distinctions and relationships between these concepts.
