SOCIETY OTTAWA SECTION
Operations research and management science involve using mathematical modeling and statistical methods to help people analyze complicated business processes and make good decisions. These techniques are especially useful for helping understand and deal with business complexity and uncertainty. In the 21st century business climate, complexity and uncertainty are at an all-time high: the electronic economy requires managers and executives to make better and faster operational and strategic decisions; globalization and the Internet are shifting and redefining relationships with customers, suppliers, partners and competitors; and the low unemployment rate is taxing the ability and imagination of companies to find, train and retain workers and managers.
