IMPACT magazine is a free bi-annual publication produced by The OR Society. It is packed with real-world examples of how to use analysis to make better decisions. It‘s full of thought-provoking articles and it‘s FREE.
The fourth issue contains the usual eclectic mix of stories of analytical work making an impact in a variety of organisations, including how Operational Research being used to help
not-for-profit organisations. In South Africa, Shout-it-Now, which is involved in
HIV counselling and testing, used simulation to help them contribute significantly
to reducing the rate of new HIV infections. In the UK, Bloodwise, a specialist blood
cancer charity, took advantage of the OR Society’s Pro Bono scheme, which provided
a volunteer analyst to help it understand better the various audiences with which it
seeks to engage. Details of the scheme are found in the article.
