Example scheme requirements
Consider this example of the mentoring process from Coca-Cola. Here, a large corporation has invested in mentoring as a focused part of its human resource development strategy.
Its emphasis on a developmental needs analysis early on in the process may mean that the focus of mentoring will be on job performance issues. You may wish to take a more flexible approach and allow the mentee and mentor more leeway to set their own agenda.
Coca-Cola has a 10-part process:
1. mentee identified
2. identifying development needs
3. identifying potential mentors
4. mentee/mentor matched
5. orientation for mentors and mentees
6. a mentor/mentee contract drawn up
7. periodic meetings to execute the plan
8. periodic reports
10. evaluation and follow-up.
