Can multiple contractors self-regulate their joint service delivery? A serious gaming experiment on road maintenance planning

It is currently unclear how performance-based payments in network tenders can effectively encourage network members to coordinate their own operations, so a serious game was performed that simulates road maintenance planning to study changes in decision making and the emergence of network coordination. The experiments...
