Optimising today

An understanding of the business is fundamental to managing the key value drivers for an operation. OPTIMISE will holistically review the mining value chain and focus on where and how value can be unlocked today. Participants will select and apply OPTIMISE tools to a significant Optimisation Project throughout the program to create immediate, sustained value.

Transforming the Future

A perennial challenge for organisations and leaders is managing today’s business while simultaneously creating the future. OPTIMISE will engage participants with the global mega trends, sector trends, emerging technology and the changing nature of work to identify opportunities for new value and step changes in future operating models.

 To connect the future with operations of today, participants will build capabilities based on the future of mining and work which includes strategic scenario planning, innovation and leading transformational change. Participants will work on a Sector Transformation Project throughout the program to help create long term, sustained value.


High performance leadership

The bedrock of OPTIMISE is in creating high performance leaders with the capabilities to drive the current and future performance. OPTIMISE incorporates a highly applied series of diagnostics, experiential challenges and holistic performance coaching to drive behavioural change.




We help build the capabilities to transition to the future. This means working with people and businesses to define and develop new operating models, creating and adopting new technology and building the services and leadership capabilities to successfully navigate and implement transformational change. 

We work with mining companies, METS, industry bodies, governments, entrepreneurs, research and education organisations and businesses that intersect with the global resources sector.
