Not at that level of management:It depends, as technology is changing rapidly, there is a natural tendency to resist the change.
It means that a lot of senior management have to learn new technical knowledge, I think a lot of 50+ age group managers will be struggling with keeping on top of their brief and it wont only be with FMG management.
This change to new clean energies will affect everyone, from the lay person to the top executives, not all will cope well with the stress of it IMO.
I saw the introduction of a distributive control system installed in an aging long established plant, most of the older personel walked.
The last thing they wanted, was to have to start learning the whole process from scratch, using technology that they struggled to get their heads around.
I'm not suggesting that this is the reason for the FMG turn over, but I bet it has caused some of the turn over, digging holes and loading ships is a lot different from developing a completely new production process and marketing a dream.
a CEO or CFO will manage a company producing beans, IO or cruise ship wo issues.
What it points to is that some key top level management do not want to see their names associated to current decisions as this is seen as career destroying
in this case cleary the green washing move..
