Creative Strategies for Global Steelmakers Post Economic Downturn: A top management's handbook for driving future competitiveness and sustainability
This 100 page study, Creative Strategies for Global Steelmakers Post Economic Downturn: A top management's handbook for driving future competitiveness and sustainability from Metal Bulletin Research discusses how steelmakers should be approaching questions of their own future development. This study considers how steelmakers should assess their strengths and weaknesses, and how they can use these assessments to turn themselves into the kind of steelmakers needed to meet the future markets requirements.
More precisely, the study looks at how steelmakers should plan to tackle questions of strategy in connection to:
- Minimisation of cost per tonne of steel produced;
- Selection of appropriate steelmaking and casting technology for quality and cost- effectiveness;
- Building organisational capabilities and supplier/customer relationships;
- Growth and capacity expansion plans when is it the right time to invest?
- Corporate social responsibility (CSR) environment protection and reduction in carbon emissions.
This study includes:
- Detailed analysis of the capabilities required by steelmakers looking to break into specialised production or downstream sectors;
- An outline of the strategies steelmakers can adopt to avoid inefficiency and waste at each stage in the hot metal and steel refining production processes;
- Analysis of cost saving approaches to the steel casting processes;
- Strategic recommendations for how steelmakers can build better customer/supplier relationships.
