Pay peanuts – get monkeys

Another popular Strictly Boardroom article from earlier this year was a twist on the ‘pay peanuts, get monkeys’ saying, with some insight as to how poor corporate culture becomes institutionalized and perpetuated.

The article is still available on or contact me for a copy.

For keen followers of the Strictly Boardroom column, our book “Strictly (Mining) Boardroom Volume II: A Practitioners Guide for Next Generation Directors” was published last year and is available as a paperback or e-book from Major Street Publishing or Amazon. We’re pleased to say that the book received a very positive review in the AusIMM Bulletin and in Geoscientist magazine – the member’s publication of the Geological Society of London.
