Course overview

Learn how to understand, influence and drive your site’s management operating system (MOS) as a key deliverable in translating corporate strategy into site implementation priorities.

You also get access to a three month All-Access Subscription to Edumine enabling you to learn from the 110+ on-demand courses offered on a variety of topics. 

As a site leader, the ability to understand, apply and influence the development of the management operating system (MOS) is critical for the execution, monitoring, and management of business performance of a site’s operations.

From driving productivity and safety to having the knowledge to hold planning priorities accountable, understanding how to guide and implement your site’s MOS is key for both the success of your operation, and the growth of your career.

With a focus on practical skills that can be applied directly to your work, this 5-week short course is designed to give you the expertise and insights to drive key decisions that ultimately impact the mine value chain and life of mine plan. This includes enhancing and leveraging operational reports and cost estimations, translating strategic plans into implementation plans, and generating practical plans for applying your learnings to your own site.
