How Rio plans to leapfrog BHP

If Rio Tinto’s roadmap works as Sam Walsh expects it to, Rio Tinto will be primed to move ahead of BHP Billiton and its global competitors and make huge efficiency gains in the process.

This weekend I urge all chief executives of major companies to watch the KGB interview with Rio Tinto chief Sam Walsh, which will be published later today. He is developing a new set of strategies that can be applied to a wide range of businesses. But one man should take particular notice: BHP chief executive Andrew Mackenzie.

Sam Walsh believes he has initiated a strategy that will see Rio move ahead of BHP and most global miners. And Walsh, with a twinkle in his eye, reveals how he is managing Rio Tinto like it is a family business.
