About the research and research methodology

Achieving Effective Delivery of Capital Projects, Insights from the Accenture global survey of the mining and metals industries is based on primary research conducted by a third-party firm on behalf of Accenture. Thirty-one interviews were conducted with executives in the metals and mining industries between February and May 2012. All respondents were C-level executives and decision makers or influencers in the management of capital projects in their organizations. Interviewers conducted a phone survey with executives in North and South America, Europe, South Africa, India, Russia and China. Accenture defines a capital project as a long-term investment in excess of $50 million, involving either greenfield or brownfield projects. For this survey, Accenture focused on delivery of major assets costing at least $1 billion to build and taking more than a year to deliver. To gain insights on leading practices, Accenture also looked at characteristics of companies that self-reported higher scores for capital project delivery.
