This feature helps to connect people around developmental goals/targets, by extending the development planning module to support a mentorship. These developmental targets can be associated with goals, competencies, overall performance, talent assessment, career aspirations, and succession plans. This allows employees to get the most out of each mentorship relationship by linking all applicable developmental targets with the mentor who can provide guidance in each of these areas.
