AIPM PILOT MENTORING PROGRAM


The Australian Institute of Project Management has launched a Pilot Mentoring Program, having engaged mentoring and leadership consultancy The Art of Mentoring to administer the program.

The AIPM Pilot Mentoring Program will pair project managers seeking guidance and support with more experienced practitioners who are willing to commit time and energy to the professional development of another practitioner. The pilot program will be an intensive, targeted program over the course of six months (March-August) and in its pilot phase will only be held in Sydney and Melbourne for a limited number of pairs. Pending the results of the pilot program, the AIPM intends to offer another intake later in 2017.
