Presented by Daniel Anderson
Code Enforcement and Game Theory is a Seminar Class specifically aimed at the Games People Play when contacted by Code Enforcement. The Seminar will introduce you to the emerging science known as Game Theory, and help you to categorize resistance at the door, into the various games people play (False Alternatives, Brinksmanship, Chicken, Prisoners Dilemma, Pursuit and Evasion, etcetera).
You will learn: The common strategies used by residents (consciously or unconsciously); The four game elements that must be established for strategic advantage; Why flexibility is not always a good strategy; The importance of the “First Mover Advantage” and how to maintain it; How to identify what game you are in and some strategies to change the game – when the game is not to your advantage.
