Mining Organisation

A major player in the mining sector wanted to improve the facilitation & problem solving skills of new graduates


Each graduate is given an introduction to the Six Sigma methodology that is focused on the following skill development areas:

  • Facilitation & leadership

  • Communication

  • Conflict management

  • Project management

  • Root Cause Analysis

  • Solution generation & selection

  • Group work

Each graduate is then encouraged to select and complete a project that delivers benefit to the organisation whilst steepening their learning curve and developing their management skills.


Six Sigma is more than a process improvement method, it requires a trained practioner to be familiar with change management techniques too. This mining company has yielded the following benefits from this program: 

  • US$ 15 million in savings over 3 years
  • Improved graduate confidence & productivity
  • Faster development of management candidates 
  • Creation of a problem solving culture, rather than a fire fighting culure
