Dispute Resolution Stairway

 

Selecting the appropriate dispute resolution process requires an understanding of range of processes that include interest-based, rights-based, and power-based options.  It is critical to have a strong understanding of the interests and to appropriately pursue the type of process that has the greatest likelihood of successfully achieving those interests. Often, those in conflict escalate quickly without consideration for which type of process best suits their needs and incur the unnecessary costs of a more formal process than may be desired given the particular goals for resolving that dispute.
