Business and Industrial

The Business & Industrial Section (BIS) brings together practitioners from academia and industry who are passionate about improving the analysis and interpretation of data in making management decisions. BIS hosts regular speaker sessions and contributes to broader RSS activities to advance the use of statistical thinking, evidence-based approaches and statistical methods in business and industry, both within the UK and globally. BIS has been established since 1933 and is one of the oldest sections of the society, having grown from its origins in Birmingham to a UK-wide network.
