  • Investigating coal-mining expenditure projects to increase investment value

    Benjamin Skerman Barrie Todhunter

    Chapter from the book: Project Management Institute Australia, . 2017. PMI Australia Conference 2017.


    Anecdotal evidence from stakeholders in the Australian coal-mining industry suggests that there are shortcomings in the outcomes of expenditure projects involving the inability of current practices and processes to deliver the intended investment value and benefit to the business. This problem appears to extend across a wide range of capital and operational expenditure portfolios, from small operational projects to major capital investments, with investment value and benefits being diminished by poor management and definition of project requirements.
