Mentoring

The PMI® Bangladesh Chapter is pleased to announce to all its members to the PMI® Bangladesh Chapter Mentoring Program. Chapter Members can participate in two ways, as a mentor or as a mentee.

As a Mentor

Initially mentors should be a PMI® chapter member with PMP® certification preferred. Consideration will be given to Project Managers that are PMI® Chapter members on review of their CV by the Program Coordinator and/or the Chapter Board.

The benefits of being a Mentor are:

  • Perpetuation of the project management culture
  • Satisfaction of contributing to the success of others
  • Enhanced potential for collaboration with other Project Managers
  • Brainstorming possible solutions to problems
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Qualify for PDUs

Mentee

To participate in the Mentoring Program, preference will be given to PMI® Bangladesh Chapter Members. Their CV (and/or expectations registered in the application form) will be used to pair with a suitable Mentor. The cost of being part of the trial program is $50 for PMI® Bangladesh Chapter Members. This will include at least 9 scheduled meetings between Mentor and Mentee. The Mentee is expected to cover any meeting expenses (e.g. coffee and refreshments) with their Mentor.

The benefits of being a Mentee are:

  • Gaining confidence in the use of Project Management
  • Having someone to talk to openly about your Project Management challenges
  • Brainstorming ideas to any problems / issues
  • Obtaining an objective view on your Project Management style

The Mentoring Program is a:

  • A learning and development environment
  • An opportunity to guide a mentee towards their goals
  • Mutual sharing of experiences for an agreed outcome
  • Inspiring and supporting another person

The Mentoring Program is not:

  • For members seeking guidance in passing their CAPM® or PMP® (the Chapter runs regular CAPM® / PMP® study group sessions)
  • An opportunity to “fix” someone else’s behaviors or actions
  • Directing someone to do something to meet goals
  • Being the expert with all the answers
  • About trying to address personal issues
