Executive Training & Conferences

ROG offers executive training programs and organizes regular workshops and conferences which aim to train executives to manage flexibly under uncertainty with concrete practical benefits. Our practitioner workshops and conferences use the powerful perspective of real options analysis to focus on valuation issues in various sectors of the new economy.

As a new valuation, project management, and strategic decision-making paradigm real options is revolutionizing the corporate world through its ability to deal with the unprecedented rate of economic change that has created a new level of uncertainty about technologies and industries. Real options, which capitalizes on this uncertainty, provides the basis for a decision making culture which is conducive to adaptation, learning, risk taking and innovation. Real options captures both the value of managerial flexibility which allows a firm to adapt to unexpected market developments, as well as the strategic value that results from proving a new technology, capitalizing on dynamic or cross-project synergies, and strategic or competitive positioning. Such managerial operating flexibility and strategic adaptability are crucial for capitalizing on favorable investment opportunities or limiting losses from adverse market developments. Real options provides companies with a more accurate value assessment of flexibility as well as a decision map that is responsive to changing business conditions.
