This paper explores the value of informal and formal mentoring for the preparation of senior administrative ranks in the public sector. Through the construction of a conceptual framework identifying essential features of mentoring roles, qualifying characteristics, relationships, and stages, and a consideration of the organizational conditions under which it is more likely to succeed, planned mentoring programs and their administrative implications are evaluated.
