BHP Innovation strategy
The Supplier Innovation Program uses an open innovation methodology to help BHP to access technological and entrepreneurial capabilities to solve operational challenges. It does so by identifying and prioritising critical business challenges in the operations, aligned with BHP’s priorities, and launching them to the market; not specifying a product or service, but rather asking for a solution. An on-site pilot is subsequently awarded to prove the solution is viable.
