Our Critical Knowledge

across the resources sector
boom-bust cycles



Rapid expansion and contraction cycles are a predictable feature of minerals and energy production. As workers exit key roles in downturns, knowledge gaps occur. Gaps in critical knowledge then compromise the next scale up or upturn (with negative impact on time, quality, and production value/realisation).

Therefore, it’s likely that you are at risk of losing critical, hard to replace knowledge. Knowledge loss occurs when staff retire, leave projects, or move to other roles. Knowledge is lost because key knowledge is known to only a few, and not captured in policies, processes, rules, and practices. 

This two-day, hands-on program for the minerals and energy sector provides
proven practical processes to identify, keep, and benefit from your most important knowledge, across boom-bust cycles and periods of industry disruption. 

Applications now open for 2018!

"Knowledge loss across boom-bust cycles hurts productivity and production. Systematic knowledge management isn’t viewed as a core capability in mining and energy. However, as we move towards becoming a knowledge-based sector and the impending ISO standard, it becomes imperative for organisations to identify and manage critical knowledge risks and priorities."
