Business Planning Process
The development of a plan and budget for an operating mine site is a relatively complex task that involves large number of inputs, numerous people, across many disciplines and multiple systems (authorised and unauthorised). The result is often a plan and budget that is not reliable, unstable, not well understood and where managers do not feel accountable for the outcomes. Poorly developed plans and budgets drive expedient actions and behaviour to deliver short term outcomes that may compromise the overall value of the operation.
The planning process is a key task for the management team which needs to be afforded the appropriate priority, time and project management. We have developed a business planning process that we use with our mining and resource clients that can be readily deployed in your business.
