This paper considers the possibility of applying a number of game approaches to the analysis of a specific economic situation of interaction between participants in the production process - administration and employees, at the enterprise. At the same time, the goals and preferences of the parties do not coincide, which increases the likelihood of conflict and has a direct impact on the result. The corresponding model reflects the peculiarities of the relationship between the financial and economic interests of the participants. A decision-making mechanism is proposed that allows determining the optimal values of the key resulting indicators and justifying the choice of strategies. The approaches have been implemented both from the point of view of antagonistic games and bimatrix ones, as well as staging and solving a game with nature. The presented methodology also helps to identify and analyze the causes of the conflict of interests of players and to quantify the risk measure of each of them when implementing the chosen strategies. The study showed that the application of game theory methods to assessing the degree of satisfaction of each of the participants can reduce the overall uncertainty when modeling a problem situation and provide a more informed decision-making for each of their stakeholders. At the same time, there are certain limitations in the use of analytical tools of game theory for modeling and analyzing complex intra-organizational relations, therefore, it is advisable to combine these approaches with other management decision-making methods to achieve an optimal result and solve production problems.
