A former student of mine is part of a team conducting a survey to gauge interest in a Mentoring program for Acquisition. If you work in federal acquisition and work for a federal agency (including DoD), please take a few minutes to complete the survey. The more junior you are, the better. From the team:

As part of the Leadership Excellence for Acquisition Professionals (LEAP) most recent cohort, a team is researching and developing new approaches that will hopefully enable the acquisition field to become more effective in their day-to-day responsibilities. They have been working on developing a mentoring program specific to the acquisition field that would provide the opportunity to serve as a mentor or be assigned as a mentee with another acquisition professional - with the overall goal of providing an outlet for the sharing of information through one-on-one communication. 

To help gain insight on whether a program like this would aid you in your professional development, they would like to invite you to take a short 10-question survey using the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NPJ9WDT. The survey is completely anonymous, and should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. The information provided will enable the team to generate quantifiable data that can later be presented to Senior Executives from numerous federal agencies and the DOD in the hopes of moving this program forward. Please feel free to forward the survey to any acquisition professionals you know.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

What does "more effective" mean? What is the definition of "effective" and how is it to be measured so that we can know when someone is more or less effective?

Kind of late for the party, however I will like to know if the program was actually created or what to follow. I need something  like this for my office. We have few new civilians and 51C and again looking completely lost.

Thank you Don. I am so happy to know you still around. You was my instructor for CON 090 back in 2014 in Utah ..."I think 2014"...and later I saw you again for FAR Bootcamp 2016 in Kuwait.  Great times! I appreciate all your teaching and more.

I remember the class in Kuwait. That's the only time I ever taught in a tent. I also remember the classroom was freezing. I would step out in to the desert heat on breaks to thaw out.

Hope all is well!

Haaaaa yes! It was.

Everything is well. I love my career field, best decision ever. I have five more active duty years to go or maybe more...who knows.

I am a KO and work at compliance and policy for my BDE. I love it! ...Learning a lot, it is a non stop searching.

Thank you for everything and more. I know I am new on the site, but I hope to stick in for a long time.

 

Best forum ever. If you ever need anything I am here.
