A summary of common business risks
 

Trust The buying ethos is typically one of trusted relationships or the purchase is recommended by another person for whom trust already exists. So identify and consider the risks.
Pressure & Demand Every business has pressures; however, this can be counterproductive when negotiating an agreement. Is there a perception that the offered terms are non-negotiable? Or because of time constraints or offer limitations time is of the essence?
Total Cost Most vendors have an ethical approach to securing business; however protecting the revenue stream will likely remain a key objective for most suppliers.  Cost is not everything, consider total cost of ownership.
Financial Has due diligence revealed the identity of areas of potential risk or financial exposure for your business? What are the hidden costs? Time is money.
Experience Are the people involved in the negotiations qualified and experienced; do they know what to look for; are they being influenced by something else?
Agreement Has the vendor presented their ‘standard’ document? This does not necessarily translate into an equitable agreement for your company.
