CURBETE, Marcelo Henrique; SARTORI, Rejane  and  MACHADO, Hilka Pelizza Vier. Knowledge sharing in mentoring in the context of the software industry. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.2, pp. 984-993. ISSN 1984-6657.

Sharing knowledge is essential in contemporary knowledge-driven organizations. Thus mentoring is a practice used to share knowledge among more and less experienced people. In this sense, this research aims to understand the relationship between the adoption of mentoring practices and the sharing of knowledge in a software development company. This is a qualitative study, using the case study method. Data was collected through questionnaires conducted with those involved in the Mentor Program of this company. The results indicate that mentoring influences the way and amount of knowledge shared among professionals, with implications of the mentor-mentor relationship in both professional development and personal relationships. Mentoring shows types and forms of sharing, such as meetings, pair programming, formal and informal assessments and reading, as well as skills acquired by participants and their experiences.

Keywords : knowledge sharing; mentoring; software company.
