Le Mentorat est une excellente façon d'apprendre de ceux qui ont le plus d'expérience ou de transmettre votre expérience à d'autres, mais l'interaction revient généralement aider tout le monde et à créer une meilleure communauté Waze.

Vue d'ensemble

Typiquement, un Mentor est beaucoup plus expérimenté que le Mentoré. Dans certains cas, un Mentor peut avoir moins d'expérience générale, mais la connaissance d'une spécialité significative dans un ou plusieurs sujets. Par exemple, un Mentor peut savoir beaucoup de choses sur une région, une ville ou un département, ou le réseau routier. Pour plus de commodité, nous divisons le mentorat en deux types:informel et formel. L'un n'est pas destiné à remplacer l'autre, mais sont conçus pour coexister.

Le Mentorat Informel se produit tout le temps quand un Wazer pose une question à un autre et quand un Wazer en aide un autre. Nous vous encourageons à vous engager dans une telle interaction régulièrement et nous avons quelques idées pour vous ici. Les exemples incluent le Forum Waze, le chat WME, les dialogues par messages privés, et bien plus encore. Devenir un Mentor Informel régulier est un excellent moyen de voir si vous êtes bon pour l'enseignement de différentes compétences d'édition, et si vous pourriez être intéressé par le Mentorat Formel.

Formal mentoring 2.png

Le Mentorat Formel est une interaction en tête-à-tête entre un Mentoré et un Mentor officiellement approuvé sur Waze avec un objectif défini, sur une durée, et en vertu d'un ensemble commun de règles, dans le but d'accélérer l'avancement de grade et de rôle tout en maintenant une qualité de l'édition et une interaction communautaire sur Waze. Les Mentors peuvent avoir plusieurs Mentorés. Les Mentors peuvent aussi proposer des activités de groupe ou en équipe à leurs Mentorés.

Les éditeurs posent et répondent aux questions sur le forum et le chat Une interaction contrôlée en tête-à-tête adaptée à l'éducation d'un Mentoré sur certaines compétences d'édition.
Can take place anytime, without any special process to set up the interaction. Must come to a formal agreement to start the mentorship, after careful selection of partners.
There is no approval process to be an informal mentor. Only Waze can approve formal mentors.
Advice can range from exceptionally good to highly questionable depending upon the provider Provided education is more predictable and controlled with high certainty for a positive outcome
Task oriented: solve a current problem in editing and nothing more (e.g., how to fix a particular junction that is giving bad directions or bad map appearance). Goal oriented: intended to improve a particular mentee skill, not a particular feature on the map.
Generally lasts a few minutes or a few hours, with little to no recurring communication expected. Repeated interaction, in a defined range of time on a specific range of topics, to improve a particular skill.
Provides instant answers to questions, but cannot track the quality of the information provided. Helps ensure quality map edits over time as editors advance in rank.
Not expected to significantly change the abilities of the Mentee and no expectation for change in rank during or after the mentorship. Expectation is to upgrade the mentee skills, allowing the mentee to rise in rank or at least close the gap toward a rise in rank. At mentor discretion, mentee may receive a (temporary) rank change to facilitate the mentorship.

Informal mentoring

Informal mentoring helps everyone involved and happens all the time. It is not tracked or managed. Keep doing what you do and have fun! The following ideas and resources might be useful as you think about your need for training and mentoring or your desire to help others.

Informal mentoring ideas

  • Ask a question in a Waze Forum.
  • Ask for help in WME chat.
  • Send a PM to a higher-level editor you have seen around Waze.
  • Utilize web conferencing/screen sharing to communicate with one or more editors while learning and editing on a project (there are many free tools for this, such as Google Hangouts).
  • Establish a Google+ Communities area to help local or regional editors. For example, see Waze Arizona.
  • Organize a local Meet-up of editors in your region for a Waze conversation over lunch.

Informal mentoring resources

The following resources may be useful for the Mentee to review alone or for the Mentor to suggest specific items to review or to use.

Formal mentoring

Formal Mentoring is a one-on-one interaction between a Mentee and Mentor with specific objectives of increasing skill, editor level, and Waze Community participation. With a specific Mentee-Mentor pair, agreed upon objective, start, and end, this process needs a bit more coordination. It also requires commitment from both the Mentee and Mentor to complete the objective. Mentoring could last a week to months - the Mentee and Mentor decide.

Formal Mentoring is conducted by a Waze-approved group of Mentors. If you wish to become a Mentor or Mentee, look on the Waze Forum about mentoring (below).

Formal mentoring summary


  • If you want to be a Mentee:
    • Make a request on the Forum.
    • Do you want to pick your own mentor?  If you don't know one, look here:
    • If you're not sure, you will be matched with a potential Mentor.
    • Work with that Mentor to reach an agreement.
      • If the Mentor is a match - Begin and complete mentoring.
      • If the Mentor is not a match - Request assistance in terminating the mentorship as peacefully as possible; you may try again with a different Mentor.


  • If you want to be a Mentor:
    • Read and agree to the Formal mentor training
    • Request to be granted the Mentor role (form under development)
    • Suggest those to whom you'd like to Mentor.
    • Survey the pool of Mentee requests and volunteer to help.

The last two suggestions are more appropriate after you receive sponsorship by a Waze Champ to be granted Mentor status.

Resources for formal mentoring

The following is a list of online resources available for the Formal Mentoring Process.

  • Forum discussion is currently in a "Trial" stage and is held on this forum.

Formal Mentoring Badges

Those that have been accepted as Formal Mentors may have one of three badges that will appear in the Forum and other locations. All are Formal Mentors but with different Rank in the Waze Community.
