  • 1.  A New Strategic Plan

    Posted 13 days ago

    Dear Colleagues, 

    I am pleased to share with you that, after many months of careful and deliberative work, the INFORMS Board of Directors has approved a new strategic plan designed to guide our work for the next several years. You can find a standalone copy of the plan here. In addition, I invite you to read more about the new strategic plan, and the work that went into its development, in my President's Desk column in the April issue of OR/MS Today magazine.

    At its core is a new vision, better decision making for a just, prosperous, and sustainable world. That vision is buoyed by INFORMS' new mission, INFORMS advances and promotes the science and technology of decision making to save lives, save money, and solve problems. 

    I'd like to take a moment to thank the entire INFORMS Board of Directors, staff directors, and others for their hard work and shared commitment to our continued success.

    If you have comments, questions, or reactions, please share them with me at 


    Stephen Graves
    INFORMS President
