OR Society Impact Magazine: Dachshunds – getting back to basics

The latest Impact Magazine from the OR Society includes an article I’ve written describing work I’ve done in the world of canine health improvement. In my hobby-life, I’m Chairman of the Dachshund Breed Council and we have been proactive in collecting health data on the breed and using it to inform our Health Strategy. I just love being able to apply my business and performance improvement knowledge to my hobby.
