If professionalism is the foundation, the capacity for progressiveness is the frame.
In the real world, the adaptations along the way are the ones that count; the ones that make it possible to commit to continuous improvement – together with professionalism as a foundation and the capacity for progressiveness as a frame.

Mining is both an art and a science; by its nature iterative and multi-faceted, requiring optimisation by focusing on the key issues that matter.
So seldom are organisations capable of matching structure with improvisation. And yet, this is what is required for successful mining projects. What is also needed is the ability to keep an eye on the desired outcome, yet be able to shift direction based on a reality.
Fox Projects provides project control services able to deliver projects on track, on time and in budget. How? We integrate planning, scheduling, cost control and status reporting functions to simplify project management and administration.
Our project controls also give decision-makers timely and effective access to key project information, via both manual and state-of-the-art computerised tools.
At its core, Fox Projects’ project control system is based on a forward-looking approach to accurate estimates and efficient dashboard reporting. We use earned value analysis, which positions
the status of the schedule and cost performance against the plan, to determine the health of the project and forecast project outcomes.
