The global mining environment is highly dynamic. METS firms need to create novel business models that unlock new economic value from new technologies; support more resilient competitive advantages and improve readiness for change across the sector.

Have you ever wondered how your organisation’s business model stacks up?

Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for METS Business Innovation (CMBI), with funding from the Queensland Government and Mining 3, carried out a national business model survey. This survey examined the performance and characteristics of the business models of 300 METS firms active in Australia, representing a wide variety of industries, geographical locations, employee sizes and levels of engagement with the sector. From the results of this survey CMBI created a Business Model Benchmarking Tool. This micro-accelerator will allow you to benchmark your organisation’s business model and will provide advice on how you can improve your business model.
