Rio Tinto as a case study in global mining currently operates a flat five level structure (known as stratums). Rio Tinto is developing a mine of the future concept which has as its central theme the automation of many tasks previously undertaken by staff. These include haul trucks, loaders, drilling rigs, the rail network and wash and sizing plants. Given that there will be considerably less employees in the future this paper discusses options of further flattening the existing five stratum business unit organizational structure model.
