A window on the world of O.R.?
The “invisibility cloak” of science fiction is now fact, albeit with limitations. O.R. could claim to have had the power of invisibility for years, though not by desire; what we want is the opposite - a high-visibility jacket! Indeed, part of the mission of the OR Society is to help make our presence more visible. But perception involves both the observed and the observer. And all of us have open and hidden parts.

Certified Analytics Professional

The OR Society now offers Certified Analytics Professional, an exam based analytics qualification established by INFORMS in the USA. This is complementary to our own accreditation programme, and does not create an exclusive ‘one-or-the-other’ choice.

What is CAP? CAP is the premier global professional certification for analytics practitioners. Those who meet CAP’s high standards and pass the rigorous exam distinguish themselves and create greater opportunities for career enhancement. Earning the CAP credential requires meeting the eligibility requirements for experience and education, effective mastering of “soft skills”, committing to the CAP code of ethics, and passing the CAP exam. For organisations seeking to enhance their ability to transform complex data into valuable insights and actions, CAP provides a trusted means to identify, recruit, and retain the very best analytics talent.

CAPs in the workforce ¦ 20% of Fortune 100 companies have CAP on staff including Bank of America, General Motors, Boeing, Chevron, duPont, IBM, JPMorgan chase, Chase, Lockheed Martin, UPs, and more. ¦ Visit to search the database for CAP professionals. ¦ add CAP Preferred to your job postings to receive résumés from the most eligible analytics professionals.
