MetadataShow full item record
This research project led by CANEGROWERS sought to address the lack of succession planning within the Queensland sugar industry. The project developed iGrow: mentoring for industry succession planning and growth, a model to meet the current and future leadership and business development needs of the industry by supporting sustainable individual businesses and whole of industry expansion, growth and productivity. The project attempted to implement iGrow in three of the fastest growing regions in Queensland – Tully, Burdekin and Mackay - and evaluate its impact. The project was inspired by and built on a pilot mentoring project, conducted in 2010 with the assistance of a grant from the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, that demonstrated a willingness by young industry members to be mentored.
