L’impresa e la gestione del contenzioso: la scelta della conciliazione

L’impresa e la gestione del conflitto

Il contenzioso rappresenta un momento patologico dell’attività aziendale: qualsiasi sia il suo valore, sia esso determinato dall’esigenza di far valere le proprie ragioni o dalla necessità di difendersi, crea per l’azienda un esborso e un dispendio di energia lavorativa che viene sottratta all’attività produttiva.

Arbitration and mediation

Arbitration and mediation: brief comparative notes

When there is a conflict, there are three methods which can be adopted to seek a solution :

-force, whereby there is direct confrontation between the parties and the stronger wins prevailing on the weaker;
-adjudication, whereby who is the winner is not determined by direct confrontation but decided by a third party, a chieftain, a judge or an arbitrator, who, applying the rules accepted by the community or his sense of justice, decides who is the winner;
-mediation, whereby the parties overcome the conflict by finding an agreement.
