What is the difference between “mentoring” and “consulting”?

A “mentorship” is a relationship in which the key goal is personal development. An individual with more experience and knowledge guides and helps a less experienced or less knowledgeable person in their particular area of expertise. The mentor has extensive experience in the area that the mentee is wanting to become more successful in. Mentoring is relationship oriented.

Coaching” varies slightly in that the coach does not necessarily have expertise in the field that their client works in. Coaching is task oriented. The focus is on particular issues such as public speaking, negotiating and strategic thinking. It tends to be more short term than mentoring.

Why would I need to carry out project management in my organisation?

Successful project management is a vital element of a successful business. It is a method of planning to deal with uncertainties that are inherent in managing projects of any size. It also takes into consideration the often limited resources and time frames that exist for most organisations when projects are being considered or are underway. BusinessAide offers expert project management consultancy for organisations of any size in and around the Melbourne region.

What is succession planning?

Succession planning and strategic business planning is the process where your organisation ensures that employees are employed and then develop during their time with you to fill each key role. It is a process where you recruit the best employees, develop their skills and abilities and prepare them for progression through the organisation.

Succession planning can also involve the transition of business ownership and control from the current owner to a new owner, particularly within family businesses.
