STAGING SYSTEM DEPLOYMENT-A REAL OPTIONS ANALYSIS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • RESULTS We find that managers at the research site are well aware of deployment risks, and systematically stage the deployment of the system. However, our analysis reveals that staging at this organization is mostly related to resource constraints and less towards risk mitigation. The additional staging options that we suggest explicitly mitigate major risks, creating optional value much larger than that created by the organization's planned staging.
