Pro Bono OR

Our Pro Bono OR scheme connects volunteer analysts with good causes. Analysts donate their time and skills to help charities or other voluntary organisations facing difficult decisions or looking for improvement. The OR Society wants more organisations to benefit from operational research (OR) and recognises the great opportunity that many third sector organisations would find OR hugely beneficial and many analysts are looking for ways of contributing to society over and above their day-job.

Organisations may seek a wide range of support:

  • Strategic planning/review
  • Impact measurement
  • Process improvement
  • Data analysis
  • Business planning
  • Efficiency improvement
  • Options appraisal
  • Decision making

Whatever the aim, operational research can offer the flexibility and adaptability to provide objective, expert help. You may also be interested in our Third Sector Special Interest Group (ORiTS)
