Many, specifically engineers and economists argue that it is time to mechanize mining, given the current labour unrest and also the wake of Marikana. The basic idea is that it current depths and other physical considerations actually demands it and at the same time will the cost savings eventually benefit the economy as a whole. Here are some of my ideas on the issue:

Employees who resign from a company leave for better pay, right? Well, that is what most managers seem to believe. According to Leigh Branham, author of The Seven Hidden Reasons Employees Leave, a recent analysis of California-based Saratoga Institute’s database of 19,700 employee surveys found that ‘89% of managers believe that most employees are pulled away by better pay’. However, the same analysis also showed that 88% of the voluntary resignations…Continue
So there you are – in control, quite content, coasting along, impressed with yourself. You have settled well into your new job, the team is chugging along just fine, and their overall performance is OK – not spectacular, but OK. You are doing a good job, right? Maybe, maybe not. The question you have to ask yourself is this: have you actually made a difference since you took over as manager, have you actually added any value to the job? Think about it – if you were to leave now, what…Continue

Imagine Pieter de Villiers taking Brian Habana before a disciplinary hearing chaired by Oregan Hoskins to address his pre-world cup lack of form. Or Pitso Mosimane giving Teko Modise a formal written warning to address his slump a while back. Granted, these are professional players who stand to lose a bundle of money if they were to get fired, which should in theory be sufficient motivation to invoke at least a temporary spike in their motivational levels. But if it does not,…Continue
My boss (who is incidentally the mastermind behind the Skills Universe) sings and makes jokes all the day long. Initially I found his behaviour rather odd and suspect. My scepticism comes from a very bad work experience, and the belief that all bosses were hateful people was supported and confirmed by similarly depressing reports from friends and family about their employers. According to popular world view bosses are to be feared, despised and avoided at all costs.

Project Management is not rocket science. It’s been around for centuries and its processes and disciplines are tried and tested. Yet it is surprising today to see organisations that don’t value the practice, or even more startling is to come across companies that don’t use it.
