The Option Pricing Model depends on market completeness, continuous trading, normally distributed risk, independence, and other factors to derive option values. When these assumptions are violated (as they usually are for new ventures and for real options), formal valuation approaches can still provide insights, but the actual values of options are less certain. It is common to employ simulation and numerical methods to value options when critical assumptions are not satisfied"
