‘Pula Madibogo’ - we lift as we rise

CIPS Africa is launching a pilot of its new Mentorship Programme ('Pula Madibogo' - we lift as we rise') in South Africa shortly. Once the programme is running successfully in South Africa, it will be launched and rolled
out to the other African countries in due course.

This pilot will be a one year long programme, consist of 20 selected and trained mentees along with just over 20 mentors.

The programme is targeted at rising stars in procurement and supply.

Mentors will be experienced senior managers – typically already MCIPS or FCIPS, who are passionate about the profession and would like to give back to the procurement community. Mentors will be matched carefully
with mentees, in terms of the needs identified by the mentee.

Focus of the programme
The focus will be on leadership, governance, 'boardroom' skill, ethics, strategic thinking, as well as the technical (supply chain/procurement) skills required by individuals to succeed in senior-level procurement managerial
