In order to prepare an organization for the successful implementation of organizational project management (OPM), it is important to ensure that relevant information is being communicated throughout the organization. The organization can facilitate the sharing of knowledge, expertise, skills, insights and experiences through dialogue and collaborative learning—also known as mentoring. Mentoring is a relationship between a more experienced person (mentor) and a less experienced person (mentee), with the goal of achieving personal and professional growth of the mentee. Mentoring benefits the organization, the mentors and, of course, the mentees.
Mentoring initiatives help practitioners perform more effectively by exposing them to more experienced employees whose knowledge and real-world experience can shorten the time needed to learn how to plan and carry out the actions that are parts of their jobs. By participating in the mentoring initiative, mentors receive recognition for their professional competency, and the satisfaction of being able to help other people in a very direct way; and greater exposure to fresh perspectives from other members of the profession.
