This article explains the process and results of distilling meaning from the book Mentoring Executives and Directors by David Clutterbuck and David Megginson, published by Butterworth Heinemann in 1999. Capturing meaning requires a method that suits the context of study. In this case the context is book that contains a number of illustrative accounts of being mentor and mentee within the private, public and voluntary sectors of business. The method permitted capturing ideas contained in the contexts described, and then associating these ideas in order to gain insights into the very nature of mentoring.
