Abstract

Centred on organisational development theory (OD) (Burke, 2011; Phelan & Lewin, 2000), this paper discusses the value of business strategy and decision making-basis for managers in the minerals mining sector of Australia. The effects of volatile global market cycles, oversupply conditions and price falls (iron ore) in economic slowdown scenarios are cited challenges that the sector often fails to accurately anticipate or counter. Such economic change has significantly impacted Australia and motivates the presentation of this paper. It aims to assist managers to
revisit their business strategy and analyse its applicability in terms of organisational inventiveness and robustness in the minerals mining sector of Australia.
