What if you could take $295M out of the cost base in your gold mining business, in less than 2 years, by changing the way work gets managed and done? And, what if you did that with no capital or technology investment? And what if you could engage your people in achieving those results while they ‘do their day job’. This is one of the examples of the remarkable results our clients achieve.
Our clients in Mining and Metals have realized over US $2 billion in benefits through our most recent assignments. We achieve an ROI of between 4 and 12 times the cost of our programs. Often within the first year. We have completed thousands of successful transformation projects over the last 72 years. Our engagements are often cost/benefit neutral before completion.
We work with mining and metal companies, across their asset lifecycle, delivering accelerated operational ramp-ups to ensure on time, on cost project completion and time-to-production; lean construction programs that safely accelerate shaft sinking and decline development and facilities construction; logistics programs designed to move people and things safely, quickly and efficiently; safe operations to reduce operational conflicts across the silos to ensure “best for project” decisions are implemented, while moving the complexity out of your daily operations and into planning cycle; and employee and community engagement to support your license to operate and improve the capability of local management and employees.
Proudfoot has been delivering hard results for decades. We know what we are talking about. We use our technical know-how adn work with your people. We spend time focusing on your company culture (employee engagement and management capability development) as well as your operating models.
It’s from this approach that our clients accelerate change to achieve dramatic, measurable and sustainable operational outcomes.
We help you change the way work gets done to provide results you can take to the bank.
We design, implement and accelerate operational and digital transformation through people. We partner with organizations to solve strategically important problems that impede top-line growth or bottom-line results.
This allows us to create new capabilities and harness the power of your people to build an engaged culture, turbocharge leadership behaviors, and implement improved operating models.
Through collaboration with your front-line supervision, your middle management, and your senior executives, we fully implement solutions that transform your operations - the way you and your people do business.
"I am pleasantly surprised by the way the people of Proudfoot and our team have been integrated in such a short time, focusing on solving the problems that have the greatest impact on our operation, in addition to training our people in their methodology, so that we apply it on our own areas" – Executive Director
