Impact & Expertise

Metals & Mining

Companies in the mining industry are facing a volatile business environment that is forcing them to rethink their strategies and the way they operate. In this environment, mining companies face several key strategic questions:

  • Should we grow organically or look for acquisition opportunities? How will growth create value in the current environment?

  • How can we innovate in our business model to create value in a rapidly changing global landscape?

  • How do we plan our business along different timescales, given the uncertainty of possible scenarios?

  • How can we move our culture from a focus on production in the up cycle to a balance between production, quality, and cost in the current business environment?

BCG has a long history of working with companies in the mining industry on their most difficult problems. Our clients include some of the world’s top producers of nickel, aluminum, copper, iron ore, and coal. Read More
