According to scientific research done by scholars in the field of Sociology, Alternative Dispute Resolution dates back to the 1940s. Social Psychologist Kurt Lewin at Yale University began to examine strategies to help understand and resolve human conflict in a non – coercive manner.
Many years later, academics began to recommend ADR systems to replace costly law suites in labour relations when employers were spending huge amounts for litigation to control the conflicts in the work force.
The ADR systems were able to help Corporations become more productive on human performance, productivity, and the company’s profitability. Corporations were no longer required to spend time in court fighting expensive wars.
Today, ADR has become a highly respected system used to reason and search for solutions to conflicts.
ADR is suitable for:
- Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
Through the use of ADR systems clients are now guided to cooperate, collaborate, and make sacrifices to over come the many obstacles that make up life.
Through a process of skillfully organized reasoning, ADR professionals help labour forces save money. We will tap into the resilience of the human condition and encourage the individuals to see each other’s interests for a negotiated settlement.
As a result, ADR systems connect with every aspect of the human condition: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual because our academic aim is to transform the individual into a collaborative style of reasoning instead of opposition, confrontation, and conflict.
