Operations researchers work with multi-disciplinary teams, advising policymakers and private sector clients on a diverse set of issues ranging from military logistics and manpower policy to the allocation of public health resources and the implementation of electric power deregulation. Such individuals use their quantitative skills to model and analyze current policy problems of national and international importance while continuing to develop better analytic and modeling techniques and build upon RAND's early OR successes. In conjunction with their research teams, they communicate their results directly to senior decision-makers, the analytic community, field-level personnel affecting change, and the public at large.
