  • 0

From 2010 through 2013, the annual number of discoveries (excluding bulk commodities) declined by more than half, even after adjusting for discoveries yet to be drilled out. The number of giant discoveries dropped to only one or two per year. The sharp decline in discoveries has occurred despite a period of significant increases in exploration spending. At the height of the recent resources boom, average annual exploration expenditure grew by almost 40 percent to record levels.

Emerging-Market Companies Shaking Up Global Competition in Automotive Supply, Construction Equipment, and Chemicals

  • 0

The report, titled Dueling with Dragons 2.0: The Next Phase of Global Corporate Competition, notes that the top ten emerging-market players (EMPs) in most industries have been growing five to ten times faster than the ten leading MNCs, driven in large part by rapid growth in their home markets, cost advantages, and acquisitions. EMPs already account for three of the world’s five biggest global chemical companies. If EMPs can maintain their current growth rates, three EMPs will rank among the top five construction-equipment companies in 4 years, and the automotive-supply industry will reach that point in 13 years.

New Book from The Boston Consulting Group Says It’s Time for Business Leaders to Rethink Their Approach to Strategy

  • 0

For many companies, the traditional approach to strategy—the kind most managers learned in business school—does not always work well in today’s increasingly diverse and changeable business environments. For industries in which environments are unpredictable and industry leaders change position frequently, experimentation may be the right approach, instead of following a fixed long-term plan. In other industries, the right approach might be to orchestrate an ecosystem of players outside the company to shape an entire sector, much as Facebook has done.

A Principled Approach to Infrastructure Project Preparation Facilities

  • 0

Vital infrastructure projects—whether highways or hospitals or hydroelectric dams—often struggle to progress beyond the concept stage, since project preparation is such a costly, complex, and risky undertaking. The difficulty is particularly acute in Africa. Traditionally, much of the preparation funding has come from multilateral institutions and donors, but they cannot meet the requirements on their own. The private sector, though keen to invest in later phases of a project, has seldom offered to finance the preparation phase directly—an almost paradoxical reluctance.
