Game theory is a tool in decision - making where actors make a choice in response to the anticipated course of actions of a competitor. It shows the thinking of players knowing that actions of one would affect actions of the rest of the players. This study involved 235 employees of various small to medium business establishments in Davao City. They were asked to respond to a hypothetical scenario where the y take co- workers as potential competitor to a promotion . Four matrices were constructed which contained the strategies and their corresponding pay- offs. The responses were empirically tested to determine likelihood of strategies given the respondents characteristics using multinomial logistic regression.
