Management of innovation in the mining industry

Change and innovation in the mining industry is proving to be hard and slow, so what are the ingredients we need for successful change?

Too often we see technology led rather than a business driven approach to innovation.  We are drawn to focus on the technology, however it is the non technical issues such as the compelling vision, the business case, along with the alignment and engagement of stakeholders, organisational structures and management processes that are necessary ingredients of successful and sustainable change and innovation in mining.

Gavin brings a deep understanding of the mining industry, and its professionals, along with a vision for the future to help define the opportunities that a technology enabled future mining industry presents.
