This chapter covers how to approach mentoring activities with both students and faculty peers using an Agile mindset and set of strategies. This chapter first discusses the ways that mentoring is a teaching activity and how mentoring is central to the Agile mindset which is human-centered. Agile and Scrum practitioners believe every person has value and can both learn from others and contribute to the professional development of others. This mindset can be applied to mentoring for mutually satisfactory personal and professional growth. The chapter provides step-by-step directions for using epics and stories with undergraduate mentees to help students with personal and professional goal-setting. Next the chapter discusses how to use a charter that lays out ground rules for the mentoring relationship and research backlog with student research mentees. The chapter then offers advice for mentoring new faculty members using user stories, a backlog, and prioritizing and estimating strategies for goal-setting. Finally the chapter discussed faculty mutual mentoring and recommends using the sprint cycle for mentoring teams.
