In early 2004, Anglo American Platinum division was faced with numerous project challenges including stage gate reviews during feasibility phase, awarding contracts to competent construction companies, managing contractors and an increasing number of safety related incidents on site.
It became clear from various audits and assessments conducted internally and externally that the management team was not aware of their exposure to risk and the subsequent consequences.
After going to market to source for a suitable solution, Head of Project Risk Management for Townsend Van Der Walt & Partners proposed a simple, yet highly effective solution – CorProfit’s KnowRisk software.
CorProfit assisted with the development of the risk methodology using the company’s corporate risk management values. Once the methodology was developed it was presented to the Head of Projects Platinum division and his management team. The buy in from the team was almost immediate when they realised the value in what was presented to them.
