Real options theory has attracted significant interest in the field
of strategic management. Advocates of the approach emphasize that
importing concepts from financial economics holds out the potential
of yielding new insights on strategic decision-making under
uncertainty as well as boundary-of-the-firm issues that are the
focus of competitive and corporate strategy. While considerable
progress has been made in conceptualizing different types of real
options for various strategic investments, considerably less has
been done to empirically validate the core propositions of real
options theory. As a result there is much debate about the merits
and promise of real options in strategy.In light of the recent
interest in real options as well as these trends in the field, this
volume examines the ways in which real options theory can
contribute to strategic management. This volume offers conceptual
pieces that trace out pathways for the theory to move forward and
presents new research on the implications of real options for
strategic investment, organization, and firm performance. The
compendium synthesizes and critiques the research on real options
as well as offers a catalyst for further research on this theory in
the strategy field.
