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?
