Provide guidance and insight to SCIP members who require additional knowledge and assistance in developing skillsets toward pursuing knowledge and careers as CI professionals.





  1. (Introductory): Utilize the existing experience of senior members of SCIP to provide guidance and coaching to individuals less experienced, both from an educational curriculum-based knowledge set as well as industry-based professionals within the CI practitioner skillset.
  2. (Advanced): To provide a mechanism to enable members to share CI best practices with Industry and Educational leaders, engage in and explore out-of-box methodologies, and to promote forward-looking perspectives on CI.

Mentoring Defined:

  • A mutually-beneficial coaching and professional based learning relationship that is both structured and flexible.
  • Can also include:
    • development of career paths
    • relationship management
    • general coaching activities in the professional business environment.

The Role of the Mentor will be to work in concert with the Mentee to:

  • Evaluate the needs of the mentee
  • Develop a roadmap that will indicate the goals, expectations and timeline for the service
  • Provide ongoing guidance, encouragement and suggestions based on the needs of the mentee
  • Serve as an expert listener, sensitive to the needs of the mentee
  • Serve as a professional role model
  • Provide constructive feedback to the mentee within the scope of the work plan

What The Mentoring Program is NOT

  • It is not a job placement, referral service, outplacement service or any employment related service.
  • It is not personal or psychological counseling.
  • It must not be used by the mentor to assign work or other tasks that pertain to their own role or responsibility.
  • It must not be used by mentors, mentees, as a primary CI collection opportunity to learn first hand information about a competitor or prospective competitor, CI practice within a competing organization, or any form of unethical activity.
  • It is not a service that is guaranteed to achieve specific professional or investment gains.

The Mentor Defined

  • An experienced CI professional who participates in a coaching / role model position with an individual who is requesting assistance in improving their business acumen around CI.
  • The Mentor will need to ensure that the mentee understands that they are not providing individualized instruction as an alternative to standard Division training or other commercial training programs.
  • Rather, the Mentor is a member of the relationship who provides guidance and suggestions about a specific need. 

The Mentee Defined

  • A CI professional who wants to develop a better understanding of methodologies, techniques, business applications and general business knowledge around CI.
  • This can include career path development or to solve specific CI related career/job challenges. 

Overall Relationship Requirements:  

  • Willingness to devote an agreed upon amount of time to the program.
  • Willingness to offer suggestions that would help resolve a learning need, problem or challenge.
  • Identifying or assigning priorities for needs and mentor program expectations
  • Clarifying and defining goals and expectations.
  • Combining mentoring with other training opportunities.
