Why is innovation so slow in mining?
Why does innovation seem so hard in mining?
These are simple key questions that many in the industry are asking. The answers are complex and invariably come back to People their behaviours, their biases and incentives and the organisational structures and processes they constrained by. Building on the experiences of both the successes and failures of very significant innovation programs Gavin reflects on what works and what didn’t, the ingredients of successful innovation programs and the barriers that bring them undone.
