In line with Exxaro’s functional leadership model and new strategy of Powering Better Lives Across Africa and Beyond, Executive Head Johan Meyer and his leadership team captured the Projects & Technology (P&T) purpose in a simple statement: “Technical and Capital Excellence (TCE)”.
“I believe that a strategy is only as effective as the company culture that supports it - a good strategy within a bad culture will never bear fruit. Management guru Peter Drucker summed this up well by saying that culture eats strategy for breakfast. In P&T, our excellence and work-life integration culture, is an important lever of strategy execution. In total, P&T employs 76 permanent employees, and up to 1200 contractors and consultants. This number will increase to just under 6000 when the projects ramp-up in 2018, meaning that TCE will have to be so embedded in the work and norms of P&T employees, that it gets shared with new staff not just as a strategy, but as part of our culture,” says Johan.
