Game theory is on the rise

Third TWS Partners and CIPS survey on the application of game theory in Procurement

CIPS and TWS Partners recently conducted their third annual survey designed to explore the awareness, understanding, and application of game theory within Procurement.

This survey examined in depth the composition and availability of game theory training within corporations, as well as the current status of technology that can facilitate game-theoretically optimised negotiations and tenders within Procurement.

Key findings of the survey include:

  • Usage of game theory is growing
    Application of game theory in Procurement increased – now at 19 % across all respondents
  • Game theory is expected to trend further
    > 65 % of participants predict game theory applications to grow
