A comprehensive review of the industry's readiness to take on the challenges of today, and tomorrow.
The Mining Journal Global Leadership Report: Preparing for Transformation speaks to the industry about the challenges it is currently facing and the preparedness to make the necessary changes to thrive in a shifting landscape.
The research has tapped into the thinking of 21 executives from the world's largest miners, representing an aggregated market capitalisation of $367 billion; and synthesised the responses from another 518 professionals from across the industry.
The result is a comprehensive review of the factors driving transformation, engagement levels between leadership groups and their employees on transformation messaging, leadership planning for the future, and the success rate for change programmes. A review of desirable leadership traits, threats and opportunities is included.
