This is the book for those serious about improving project selection results.
Lee Lambert
While I was braced for a painful experience, I found this to be a surprisingly digestible piece of work, with good analogies used to keep the reader connected.
Terry Doerscher
I have read a few other options books for "practitioners" and this book is the best.

This is the book for those serious about improving project selection results. This is the only book of its kind for today's project management professional. Finally, I feel I understand how to use this unique approach to evaluate all the options available in selecting projects that will significantly contribute to an organization's bottom line.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Natesa G. Sabapathy on October 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Starting with an introduction to the real options analysis the authors take us through the traditional project valuations tools (which is a bonus) to the process used to value projects using real options analysis, on the way explaining the methods and computational techniques employed to solve real option problems and how real options analysis supplements the traditional tools.

The detailed solutions provided for the various examples using ample figures and tables really help in understanding the application of real options analysis technique to project valuation.

This book will be of great help to corporate executives, senior managers, portfolio, program and project managers who want to go beyond the application of traditional tools of project valuation, searching for newer techniques.

I work in corporate finance and I read five real options books from Amazon to develop a recommendation on how we could apply a RO framework to our investment decisions. This was by far the best book. It's practical and logical, and shows you all the steps to build binomial trees to start valuing options. If you are looking for a book on the theory and higher math of real options, this book doesn't go into that as much, however it is perfect as a practioner's guide.

I have read a few other options books for "practitioners" and this book is the best. Very practical and usable. In fact, I read it in small pieces and still get a lot out of it. I thank the others for sparing us on the theory and not trying to sell something.
