18% reduction in copper unit cost through idea generation pipeline that closed productivity gaps and improved accountability

small logo

Our client, a Southern African copper miner, was struggling to deliver full benefit on a poorly managed ideas pipeline that lacked prioritisation and did not have effective mechanisms to hold individuals to account.

Partners in Performance was engaged for 16 weeks to support their unit cost reduction drive by implementing a structured ideas management system and improve accountability loops at all levels of the organisation.

Key deliverables

  • Created an ideas pipeline worth more than $170m per year, representing a unit cost reduction of 18%. 
  • More than 6% improvement in milled tonnes and 9% improvement in total copper production rate.
