Pro Bono OR volunteers required for new project with The OR Society

The OR Society

Project summary:
Project:
The volunteer is required to suggest a risk model of membership renewal. Using data from the existing membership database, the results of previous studies and discussions with staff and members, the main factors of risk may be identified. The output of the study could include:
  • -         A list of likely risk factors, and the different personas subject to these risks
  • -         Suggestions for extra data to be included on the membership database
  • -         Suggestions on how each risk can be mitigated
  • -         Some quantification of the size of the risk due to the various factors
  • -       Possibly a flow model that could be used to investigate the most effective way of reducing drop-out
  • -    Recommendations for a contact strategy to improve renewal. This should account for different risk groups, their preferences and likely success rates, costs and feasibility.

Time commitment: approx. 10-14 days

Location: London or Birmingham for 2-3 initial meetings, followed by working remotely.
