Value-based fees in the mediation and ADR world

Professional mediators Amanda Bucklow, Tammy Lenski and Diane Levin discuss the problems associated with hourly and project billing, and ponder the promise and challenges of value-based fees. Two resources were referenced in the discussion: Consultants and value-based billing proponents Alan Weiss and Wendy Werner.
