Revealed - The Secrets to Creating an Innovation Culture

About this Podcast...

NB: This Podcast will be recorded LIVE on the 26th Feb and will be live on Mining IQ thereafter.

How to Create an Innovation Culture is a thought-provoking discussion with Nick Fleming, Sinclair Knight Merz’s (SKM’s) executive leader on Sustainability and Innovation.

In terms of mining, SKM has identified a number of drivers for innovation in the sector. These include, from a business perspective, the need to continually look for ways to increase shareholder value, to meet the global demand for commodities, to ‘do more with less’ and maintain a social licence to operate.

Operationally, the increasing complexity of ore extraction, the shift towards continuous and autonomous mining and the continued focus on safety, means that mining companies are under increasing pressure to find new ways of operating. Added to this is the shortage of skilled workers and the location of mines increasingly being in remote locations and in harsh conditions.

In this frank discussion Nick will reveal his experience around the following:

  • What are the drivers for innovation?
  • What are the elements required to create an innovation culture? Ie. technology, people, systems
  • How can they be successfully integrated?
  • What are the outcomes of developing an innovation culture?
  • What does the future state look like?
  • Case study – SKM’s experience internally and with clients "on project" and "off project" – outcomes, future
