This course will help your clients, colleagues and others in your organisation that interact with O.R. professionals to understand the way O.R. people see the world, work and solve problems. They will be able to identify when and how O.R. professionals can really help, work more closely – and more effectively – with O.R. people and blend O.R. into an overall consultancy service offering. They’ll also see how some apparently simple problems can go terribly wrong without an O.R. style intervention.

  • The origins of O.R.
  • How O.R. concepts like measurement, queueing and simulation are everywhere
  • How the media ‘stole’ decision making, forecasting and game theory from O.R.
  • Seeing the world through O.R. tinted glasses
