Assessment of investment profitability with discounted cash flows has
proven insufficient when industry structures change. Managers need an
extended flexibility in decision–making that DCF analyzes cannot offer.
Real Option valuation as a method for improving flexibility in
investment decisions has been widely researched but less used in
business. With good support tools it is possible for managers to cross
the threshold to Real Option methods and thinking. Real Option
spreadsheet tools support both decision–making processes and business
learning. They utilize the flexibility that new key knowledge brings to
volatile industry situations and lead to better investment decisions.
