Teller, Romney P.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Pepperdine University
The researcher utilized a qualitative approach to conduct a program evaluation of the organization where he is employed. The study intended to serve as a program evaluation for the structured in-house mentoring program at a large aerospace corporation (A-Corp). This program evaluation clarified areas in which the current mentoring program is lacking and could be improved to align with best practices for mentoring that have been identified in the research literature. As a participant observer, the researcher used telephone focus groups as the main data source. A secondary data source included documents such as the training manual and intranet descriptions of the program. Conclusions are discussed as follows: (a) the formal mentoring program offered several important benefits to mentees, mentors, and the company; (b) areas in which the mentoring program matches the best practices noted in the literature, according to participant responses and training materials reviewed by the researcher, in table format; and (c) a list summarizes what participants stated as the areas needing improvement, and this list is used as the basis for organizing the recommendations for practical applications.
