Abstract or Description

While several areas of organizational research have benefited from the use of games to study interaction between individuals, one area that has not done so is the study of organizational coordination. This is in spite of the large game-theoretic literature on coordination games and solutions to coordination problems. This paper brings the two approaches together, showing how simple games can be used to represent different problems of organizational interdependence and how game-theoretic solutions to coordination problems are related to organizational solutions.
