Using a DELPHI and PESTEL study, this research aims to predict the trends that will impact the quarrying industry to guide quarrying practice, inform vocational education, and strategic policy direction.
The concept of foresight is becoming an issue for leaders and managers across the New Zealand quarrying industry and the world. The lack of foresight was evident with the industry’s response to COVID-19. With the current qualifications focusing on the technical skills, there is a need to identify the workforce needs to support the development of educational products that will support the industry to meet those needs.
