Design & implementation

The purpose of the design and implementation of organisational mentoring programmes is to create the best possible framework for the individual mentor/mentee relationships to work well and create results for the pairs and thus also create the desired results for the organisation.

Generally, a mentoring programme progresses through five phases; Decision, Preparation, Establishing the relationship, Learning and developing and Ending. When designing and implementing a mentoring programme, it is important to consider all these five phases prior to beginning the programme.


There are many different types of and approaches to the design of a mentoring programme. Here are some examples of different types of mentoring programmes:

  • Internal programmes – all participants are employees from the same organisation
  • Open programmes – also called cross mentoring where the participants are match across different organisations, who have joined forces to establish a mentoring programme


No mentoring programmes are identical and it is therefore important to define the purpose and goal of the programme based on the organisation’s current situation. The definition of mentoring and design of the programme must be adapted the readiness and needs of the organisation.
