Despite the apparent relevance of Real Options to business decisions, it has had limited impact generally. One problem frequently expressed is that options theory is regarded as being notoriously arcane and many discussions that go beyond the conceptual level get trapped in the mathematics. This is unfortunate because Real Options are best understood as a way of thinking and need to be positioned correctly alongside an approach that creates coherent stories about possible future outcomes, which is the territory of scenario analysis.
