An innovative multiple volatility real options approach was developed to capture the value of flexibility in decision-making in investment projects exposed to multiple uncertainties. Specifically, the approach constructs a new real options decision-tree accommodating multiple uncertainties and contingent decision-making at various stages of a project. It provides practical solutions to the valuation of real-world projects subject to significant project-specific as well as market uncertainties, such as those in the resource sector. The thesis shows how this robust decision-making approach can create value for businesses both by allowing them to exploit opportunities and to avoid mistakes.
