by Kumudinei Dissanayake, Masayasu Takahashi, Siriyama Kanthi Herath
International Journal of Management and Enterprise Development (IJMED), Vol. 3, No. 5, 2006

Abstract: This study is based on the understanding that the competitive job requirements of organisations, social trends demanding loosely bound careers, and the resulting challenges for mentors in developing careers with their protégés suggest a constructive nature of mentor-protégé relationships for organisations in the future. The premise was that the resulting careers in organisations are constructions with shared contributions from both a mentor and a protégé.
