Business development ideas: Negotiation skills
Read this text about “Game Theory” and write if you knew about this theory.
Game Theory is a mathematical model of interactions that is used in competitive situations to settle conflicts or initiate negotiations between two rational decision makers. Game Theory is widely used in the fields of economics, politics, psychology, computer science and even biology. Business organizations use Game Theory to address issues like mergers, negotiations, product launch, price wars and more.
Game theory can be described as the mathematical study of decision-making, of conflict and strategy in social situations. It helps explain how we interact in key decision-making processes.
