Benefits of the Program

For the Chapter, the Middle Tennessee Project Management Workforce and PMOs: The PMI Nashville Chapter benefits from the mentorship program by offering members additional opportunities to learn, encouraging alternatives to networking, sponsoring educational and training projects, and adding value to chapter memberships. It also allows the Chapter to contribute to raising the level of proficiency of the Project Managers working in the Middle Tennessee region. Individual PMOs benefit from more proficient Project Managers. With projects commonly costing or impacting many thousands, even millions, of dollars, doesn’t it make good business sense for a project manager to be provided mentoring help in the quest for success, both of the project manager and of the project?

For the Mentee: The PMI mentees benefit by gaining additional experience in project management professional development, exploring the project management world through interaction with a qualified professional, and gaining hands-on experience through a practitioner’s perspective. The program partnership should assist in determining the mentee’s developmental needs, establishing goals within the profession, and establishing a meaningful professional relationship with mentor.

For the Mentor: This opportunity allows the mentors to give back to the profession, strengthens their interpersonal relationship skills and can be a career enhancement. Mentors are encouraged to share knowledge, which helps increase the mentor’s sense of self-worth.
